ICES Requirements and Verification 2016

The increasing complexity of software systems in the era of Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things makes verification a challenge as well as making sure that we have handled all the requirements.

The conference features distinguished speakers from industry and academia that will report on best practices and approaches to advance the state of the art.
➥ How do we handle complexity?
➥ What methods can we use?
➥ How to test IoT?
➥ How can industry and academia work together?

The keynote speaker, Prof. Manfred Broy, is a world leading computer scientist and a key figure in European efforts towards industrial digitalization.

The conference is arranged by ICES (Innovative Centre for Embedded Systems) – a centre at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. ICES works closely with its 27 member companies. The goal is to meet the challenges which researchers and developers face within the complex world of embedded systems today and in the future.
