This panel will discuss the challenges on technology, software engineering, safety methods, organisation and ecosystem when building safe systems with open-source software.

Expect a refreshing discussion from leading experts:
- from industrial practice with Paul Sherwood & Lukas Bulwahn working in companies that build software for safety-critical systems.
- from certification authorities with Nicole Pappler from TÜV Süd
- from the open-source perspective with Kate Stewart, driving efforts towards addressing safety aspects in the Zephyr project
- from academia with Prof. Nicholas McGuire who has been researching on the core questions to truthfully ensure safety in complex systems that embodies open-source software.

In previous years on ELCE & OSS 2018 and other conferences, different speakers have provided different perspectives on the topic of safe systems and addressing the safety aspects in open-source software. This panel shall allow to present these perspectives in a common forum.
