Modern-day national infrastructure programs are often comprised of critical software-intensive systems. A key differentiator with these projects is the scale of the engineering endeavour coupled with the need to remain operational for the long term – often over several decades.

This year, the High Integrity Software conference, set to take place on 11th October, will consider this issue from a technical perspective. More specifically, the aim is to understand how early decisions around cyber-physical system architectures and adopting effective software development lifecycles and verification techniques will later impact defect rates and maintainability. However, the challenge for such large-scale and long-term systems is multi-faceted. Therefore, the conference will also consider broader issues within the software development ecosystem, such as sustainable supply chains and talent streams.
