<p>The Australian System Safety Conference (ASSC) is organised by the Australian Safety Critical Systems Association (aSCSa), a Special Interest Group of the Australian Computer Society. ​</p> <p>The theme for the 2023 conference is “Closing the Loop: Incorporating Humans into Systems”. With systems growing increasingly complex, we are exploring the role of Humans in modern systems, particularly the contribution of Humans to System Safety and Cybersecurity. As systems are starting to incorporate more artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous agents, etc., we are exploring the changing role of the human element: when should humans be in-the-loop, on-the-loop, or out-of-the-loop?<br><br>Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, systems engineering, safety assurance, human factors, cybersecurity and social engineering, security assurance, reliance, automation, collaboration, teamwork, trust, and assurance standards.<br><br><strong><a href="" target="_blank">Find out more about the event here</a></strong>.<br><br>Event date and time:</p> <ul><li>Wednesday 18th October – 8:30am - 5:00pm Technical Program</li><li>Thursday 19th October – 8:30am - 3:00pm Technical Program</li></ul>
