Feedback form is now closed.
Recently, there is an emergent need of the industry building complex software systems with high performance, safety and security requirements.

In the complex software systems, various open-source software components, such as the Linux kernel, the ROS middleware and other standard open-source libraries, are foreseen to be employed as they form the de-facto standard of current software systems.

In safety-critical systems, these open-source software components however also require special consideration, as malfunctions can lead to hazards and harm to people.

The Linux Foundation has recently initiated the ELISA (Enabling Linux In Safety Applications) Project.
This BoF session shall allow interested engineers and project managers to discuss together on the challenges of addressing safety aspects in open-source software and allow them to exchange and identify suitable areas of collaboration.
