What is the MIT STAMP Workshop?
Each year in March we host an industry workshop at MIT to help practitioners learn more about the latest advances in STAMP-based techniques like STPA and CAST, meet with other practitioners using these methods, and to hear about applications, evaluations, and the latest developments in these powerful new approaches to system safety and cyber security. The first day typically provides short tutorials to introduce STAMP, STPA, CAST, and related techniques. This is not a training class, but it will introduce some basic concepts so you can understand the talks over the next three days. The following three days involve presentations, panels, and poster sessions from organizations around the world who want to share their experiences with these techniques.
The entire workshop is free and open to the public–you just have to register.
Who comes to the STAMP Workshops?
In 2018 we had over 300 registrations from 32 countries. Presenters come from industry, government, and academia. Many industries are represented including automotive, aviation, air traffic control, medical devices, healthcare, oil and gas, rail, chemicals, space, human factors, robots, security, defense, workplace safety, and others.
See the list of industries and organizations that have attended our workshop.
