background 

Newsletter

The club has published its newsletter Safety Systems three times a year since 1991.
The newsletter is distributed to paid-up members and can be made available in electronic form for inclusion on corporate members' intranet sites.

An index of Newsletters since January 1998 is available on this page.

Symposium proceedings

The proceedings of the annual symposium, held each February since 1993, are published in book form. Copies can be purchased from the publisher and for SSS'13 and later are available on Amazon.
Details of all Symposium proceedings are available on this page.

All publications are available to download free by current SCSC members (please log in first), recent books are available as 'print on demand' from Amazon at reasonable cost.

[SCSC-150] Engineering Safe Autonomy
 Proceeding thumbnail

Proceedings of the Twenty-seventh Safety-Critical Systems Symposium, Bristol, UK.
Edited by Mike Parsons and Tim Kelly
Ref: ISBN-978-1729361764
Publisher: SCSC on Amazon
Available: Printed book, download full book or individual papers.
Engineering Safe Autonomy contains papers presented at the twenty-seventh annual Safety-Critical Systems Symposium, held in Bristol, UK, in February 2019. The Symposium is for engineers, managers and academics in the field of system safety, across all industry sectors, so the papers making up this volume offer wide coverage of current safety topics, and a blend of academic research and industrial experience. They include both recent developments in the field and discussion of open issues and questions. The topics covered in this volume include: Autonomy, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Safety Services, New Approaches, Safe Decision Making and Security Informed Safety. This book will be of interest to practitioners, managers and academics working in the safety-critical and safety-related areas.
