HIS 2019 to highlight future aerospace systems

Posted 19 September 2019 · Add Comment

The sixth edition of the annual High Integrity Software (HIS) Conference, taking place in Bristol on 5th November 2019, which attracts leaders in industry and academia who share the common focus of producing high integrity software, will feature a focus on future aerospace systems.



HIS 2019 will feature talks from industrial and academic specialists, focusing on four key themes: Future Aerospace Systems, Future Automotive Systems, Critical Systems: Security and Safety and Languages and Technologies.

Two keynote speakers have been confirmed to represent both industrial and academic views: George Romanski, Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor of Computer Aircraft Software at the Federal Aviation Administration, and Les Hatton, Emeritus Professor of Forensic Software Engineering at Kingston University.

The event addresses new, current and future challenges and continues to grow year on year. The conference has long-standing support from key industry players AdaCore, Altran, Jaguar Land Rover, BAE Systems and General Dynamics.

Tom Anderson from CSR Events commented: “The ongoing success of the HIS conference is surely due, in very large measure, to the emphasis that the event places on practical, industrial and commercial systems. This is reflected by the unstinting support we receive: from our sponsors, our speakers, our exhibitors – and, of course, our delegates.”

This promises to be the pivotal event as we enter an age of digital dependency and many aspects of our everyday lives rely on the correct behaviour of software-intensive electronic systems. It welcomes an international audience, with delegates from continental Europe to Japan.

Recognising the need to engage new engineers on this key topic, there are special rates available for those at an early stage of their career, continuing to support the next generation of quality software developers through subsidised participation rates for university students and anyone enrolled in an early-starter/apprenticeship scheme:

Jamie Ayre, Commercial Director at AdaCore commented: “HIS is quite simply one of the best conferences we attend globally. The relevance of the content, the wide range of industries represented amongst the delegate list and a dedicated exhibition space with leading companies in the critical software development solutions arena, ensures that the conference continues to see great success year on year.”

Stuart Matthews, Research and Technology Manager at Altran UK said: “I am delighted that we have continued our engagement with the High Integrity Software Conference. A compelling programme, including strong keynote speakers and a perspective based on a balance of industry and academia makes HIS a must-attend event.”
