The 4th International Workshop on Assurance Cases for Software-intensive Systems (ASSURE 2016) is being collocated this year with SAFECOMP 2016, and aims to provide an international forum for high-quality contributions on the application of assurance case principles and techniques to provide assurance that the dependability properties of critical, software-intensive systems have been met.

The main goals of the workshop are to:

  • Explore techniques for the creation and assessment of assurance cases for software-intensive systems
  • Examine the role of assurance cases in the engineering lifecycle of critical systems
  • Identify the dimension of effective practice in the development and evaluation of assurance cases
  • Investigate the relationship between dependability techniques and assurance cases
  • Identify critical research challenges and define a roadmap for future development
We invite original, high-quality research, practice, tools and position papers that have not been published/submitted elsewhere. See the full Call for Papers, for more details on topics. Also view the submission deadlines, and guidelines.
