CREDES Summer School

Dependable Systems Design

June 2-3, 2011. Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia


Call for participation (pdf)

The Summer School is organized for young researchers, PhD and MSc students. It provides an opportunity to learn in a condensed form the state-of-the-art of the approaches for dependable systems design. Reputed experts from European universities will give eight lectures covering the main challenges of reliability and fault tolerance in today’s embedded systems. Moreover, the Summer School will give the participating students an opportunity to present their research and receive feedback. The Summer School is organized by the Centre of Research Excellence in Dependable Embedded Systems (CREDES) at Tallinn University of Technology.

As a part of the Summer School there will be arranged a ZUSYS Workshop sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). The objective of the ZUSYS Workshop is to promote cooperation between Tallinn University of Technology and Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus, Germany.
