Assured Autonomy Workshop #1
This is the first in a series of workshops on Assured Autonomy. See the landing page for this series here to learn more.
This workshop is focused on identifying current and anticipated challenges and problems in assuring autonomous systems within and across applications and sectors.
The workshop will be structured in order to stimulate
cross-disciplinary exchange. We expect to tentatively concentrate on several challenge areas and application domains. The challenge areas include the following:
- Security and privacy.
- Safety, trust and verification.
- Test, evaluation and certification.
- Human-autonomy integration.
- Policy, regulation and ethics.
The application domains that will be represented at the workshop include the following:
- Health and medicine.
- Civilian infrastructure
The expected outcome of the first workshop is an interim report which will provide inputs to the planning of and the discussions during the second workshop and to the final roadmap document.

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) will cover travel expenses for all participants who desire it. Participants are asked to make their own travel arrangements to get to the workshop, including purchasing airline tickets. Following the symposium, CCC will circulate a reimbursement form that participants will need to complete and submit, along with copies of receipts for amounts exceeding $75.
In general, standard Federal travel policies apply: CCC will reimburse for non-refundable economy airfare on U.S. Flag carriers; and no alcohol will be covered.
For more information, please see the Guidelines for Participant Reimbursements from CCC.
Additional questions about the reimbursement policy should be directed to Khari Douglas, (kdouglas [at] cra.org).
