Keynote Tutorials

Monday 26th September 11.00 - 12.40
Cyber Security for High-Reliability, Safety Critical Systems
Chris Johnson

Chris is Professor and Head of Computing at the University of Glasgow. He was founding co-chair of the Scientific Advisory Board for the €3 Billion EC SESAR programme on the modernisation of Air traffic management. He has advised the European Commission (DG Move), the European Aviation Safety Agency and the UK CAA on cyber security. He has also assisted a number of UK airports as well as Aeroports de Paris and Schiphol airport on aspects of cyber resilience. Johnson also advises EDF and the UK nuclear industry on digital forensics within the civil reactor new-build programme. Prior to that he supported the United Nations on the cyber security of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear facilities. He has held fellowships from NASA and the US Air Force.

Demystifying Human Performance Modelling: An Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Dynamic Human Reliability Analysis
Ronald Boring

Ronald Laurids Boring, Ph.D., is a Principal Human Factors Scientist at Idaho National Laboratory, where he has worked as a researcher and principal investigator on projects for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NASA, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, the Joint Warfare Analysis Center, and the Norwegian Research Council. He previously worked as a human reliability researcher at Sandia National Laboratories, a usability engineer for Microsoft Corporation and Expedia Corporation, a guest researcher in human-computer interaction at the National Research Council of Canada, and a visiting human factors scientist at OECD Halden Reactor Project. Dr. Boring has a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from Carleton University. He was a Fulbright Academic Scholar to the University of Heidelberg, Germany. He has published over 170 research articles in a wide variety of human reliability, human factors, and human-computer interaction forums. He has served on the organizing committees for international conferences held by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, IEEE, the Association for Computing Machinery, and the American Nuclear Society

Reliability Assessment of Complex Systems
Antoine Rauzy

Antoine Rauzy is currently Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU, Trondheim, Norway) and Head of the Chair Blériot-Fabre (CentraleSupélec, Paris, France). During his career, he has moved forth and back from academia (University of Bordeaux, CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique) to industry (Dassault Systèmes) and created start-ups (ARBoost Technologies). Antoine works on mathematical and algorithmic foundations of reliability engineering. He has developed several state-of-the-art algorithms and software (e.g. for fault trees and Markov chains assessment) and is the main designer of the AltaRica modelling language. He has published over 150 articles in international journals and conferences.
