Australian System Safety

Conference  2022

Melbourne, VIC.

26th - 27th May 2022

Conference Theme

"Assurance of Artificial Intelligence"


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. ​

The theme for the 2022 conference is “Assurance of Artificial Intelligence”. With systems incorporating more and more artificial intelligence (AI) in automation and autonomy application, the assurance of these systems becomes more challenging. 

Topics of interest in relation to AI include, but not limited to, safety assurance, security assurance, human factors, collaboration, teamwork, trust, agent-based adaptive systems, assurance standards.

The 2022 ASSC would like to examine and share the latest thinking on the state of the art and its fitness for purpose.
We invite research papers and project experience to present and engage.
