Assured Autonomy Workshop #2
This is the second in a series of three workshops on Assured Autonomy. See the landing page for this series here to learn more.
This workshop will focus on identifying existing capabilities, current research, and research trends that could address the challenges and problems identified in workshop 1.
The workshop will be structured in order to stimulate cross-disciplinary exchange. The tentative list of research areas to be covered includes the following:
- Safety, verification, test and certification.
- Security and privacy.
- Human-autonomy integration and trust.
- Policy, regulation and ethics.
Additional discussions—cutting across the research areas—will concentrate on several applications of autonomy in mobility, health & medicine and the civilian infrastructure.
The expected outcome of the second workshop is an interim report which will provide inputs to the planning of and the discussions during the third workshop and to the final roadmap document.

The 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.
