FLOSS for Safety related Systems (Class)

One of the classes at this year's Embedded World conference in Nuremberg, Germany is chaired by OSADL's Safety Coordinator Prof. Nicholas Mc Guire. It takes place on Thursday, March 3, and is titled "FLOSS for Safety-related Systems". The call for papers and the selection of suitable presentations by a program committee was organized as an OSADL Special Event. We are very glad that a large number of top scientists and engineers have submitted paper proposals. This made it possible to compose a highly attractive program that covers many important facets of using Free and Open Source Software in safety-critical systems.
