Critical System Engineering Acceleration

CIC invites you to the Crystal Final Dissemination Event

In conjunction with the 5th Conference on Interoperability for Embedded Systems Development Environments

CIC was a partner on the Crystal project and provided industry analyst insight to the directions taken. We ran an interoperability survey that was presented at the 4th Interoperability conference held in Paris about 18 months ago. The project’s goal to create a interoperability strategy and standard for tool chains within the safety critical systems engineering field will influence the IoT build processes within this sector.

Date: June 15-16, 2016

Location: Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Avd. de la Universidad 30, 28911, Legané

A day and a half full of highlights about the CRYSTAL approach in establishing and pushing forward an Interoperability Specification as an open European standard for the development of safety-critical embedded systems in the automotive, aerospace, rail and health care domain.

  • Well-known keynote speakers will talk about inspirations in engineering in the future.
  • End Users and Tool vendors will explain how CRYSTAL has influenced their business from management perspective.
  • In technical presentations you will get insight to the challenges and achievements in CRYSTAL.
  • Technical highlights will be presented in the exhibition area.
  • Standardization Organizations talk about experiences during the implementation of CRYSTAL use cases.

Deadline for registration: June 10th 2016

Information to the registration, program and more details will be continuously updated on the webpage.
