Submit a draft presentation or detailed description of your lightning talk by April 30. If you submit draft slides, please include any relevant explanations or discussion points in the notes accompanying the presentation.

- Enabling effective oversight and quality control of STPA efforts
- Prioritizing the results from STPA and CAST

Other possible topics for presentations (not limited to these):

- Using STPA to make decisions
- Accident/loss analyses

Guidelines
Please be sure that your submission includes enough information for reviewers to evaluate the work that was done for appropriateness at the workshop and the correctness of any analysis that might be presented. Please include:
- The topic or problem you studied
- How you went about solving the problem
- Examples of any work that was done
- Results and conclusions

As in previous years, this workshop prioritizes industry applications and practical user experiences over theoretical methodology and academic proposals, which are better suited for other venues.

Please avoid the common mistakes described in:
  - Common Mistakes Using STAMP And Its Tools

If your presentation involves STPA, please be sure you have read the STPA Handbook and the guidelines therein.

If your presentation involves CAST, please be sure you have read the CAST Handbook and the guidelines therein.
