Welcome to the 34th ISSC, the premiere international conference on system safety. The theme for ISSC 2016 is "Developing System Safety Engineers for the Future." The conference focus is on training and educating new System Safety Engineers. The app provides access to the schedule along with live schedule updates during the conference; and access to the proceedings to include papers, paper presentations, and tutorials. The 2016 ISSC includes a separate tutorial track of approximately 20 hours of basic system safety engineering and management (SSEM) training focusing on the new System Safety Engineer. Topics include an overview of system safety, hazard analysis techniques, MIL-STD-882E system safety process and tasks, and SAE ARP 4761 system safety process and hazard analysis techniques. The Conference Technical Program will also include other tutorials, workshops, and panels, which will include advanced system safety engineering and management topics along with tutorials on managing system safety engineers. Paper topics (sessions) will include general system safety engineering, human factors, accident and incident investigation, ground transportation system safety (highway and rail), and electrical and nuclear power system safety.
