September 16-17, 2019
Hyatt Regency Miami, Miami, Florida
ION’s Cognizant Autonomous Systems for Safety Critical Applications (CASSCA) Conference. Featuring well-recognized experts and leaders from government, industry and academia.
General Chair: Prof. Zak Kassas, University of California, Irvine
Technical Program Chair: Dr. Robert Leishman, Air Force Institute of Technology
The CASSCA 2019 Conference will explore the current state of the art in autonomous vehicles development, from the often disparate perspectives of government, industry and academic institutions. Plenary speakers, representing the wide variety of interests and perspectives on autonomous vehicles, will kick off the conference with insight into what these vehicles are capable of, and what interesting concepts are now within reach. Conference discussions will investigate the unique challenges and difficulties associated with addressing the needs of safety-critical applications in the deployment of autonomous vehicles. Crucial perspectives and important concerns from the trust, policy and ethics communities on the development and deployment of these vehicles will be heard. Technical success alone cannot secure widespread adoption and deployment of autonomous vehicles. Successful solutions will emerge from the combined efforts of scientists, engineers, and policy-makers.
