Workshop on Industry-Driven Approaches for Cost-effective Certification of Safety-Critical, Mixed-Criticality System, WICERT 2013

Increased complexity of embedded systems implies high certification costs to comply with functional safety standards and regulations. The use of technologies such as for example multi-core and FPGA is particularly a challenge in mixed-criticality configurations. Mixed criticality is the concept of allowing applications at different levels of criticality to interact and co-exist on the same computational platform. In a mixed-criticality system, low-critical and high-critical applications coexist and must therefore share processing time in a safe way. Unfortunately, certification of such systems is more difficult, because it requires that even the components of less criticality be certified at the highest criticality level.

This workshop aims to present and evaluate different industry-driven approaches for reducing certification costs in safety-critical, mixed-criticality systems. In particular, WICERT will provide a platform for industrial demonstrations, thematic presentations and in-depth discussions about new HW/SW architectures and mechanisms and safety guidelines to achieve a more cost-effective, precise, and scalable certification. WICERT aims at bringing together experts, researchers, and practitioners, from diverse communities, such as safety and security engineering, certification processes, model-based technologies, software and hardware design, safety- critical systems and applications communities (aerospace, automotive, industrial manufacturing, health, etc.).
