Welcome to the 38th ISSC, the premiere international conference on system safety. The theme for ISSC 2020 is "Optimizing System Safety." The conference technical program is focused on training and educating new System Safety Engineers and Engineers in other disciplines who want to learn some System Safety fundamentals. The training is endorsed by the International System Safety Society.

We want you to share your knowledge and we invite you to participate. Please consider one of several types of technical presentations (listed below) on any process, method, or technique that you believe contributes to the goals and objectives of system safety. This interdisciplinary conference will bring practitioners and the foremost thinkers of the system safety discipline together for an exchange of ideas, knowledge and experience. We want to emphasize several aspects of system safety practice: how to apply techniques, lessons learned and examples of actual specific applications.

The Conference is accepting four types of presentation proposals: 


Educational presentations conducted in 1.5-hour time slots. Tutorials may be 1.5 hours, 3 hours (1/2 day), 6 hours (1 full day) or 12 hours (2 full days) in length and are delivered by one or more instructors. They are intended to offer practical information on basic, intermediate, or advanced topics related to system safety. Most tutorials will be eligible for CEU credits. In support of the 38th ISSC theme, the conference is particularly interested in top-quality tutorials that will engage and educate attendees.

Technical Papers

These papers are compositions of generally between six and not more than twelve pages written by one or more authors, dealing with a subject related to system safety. Technical papers will be reviewed by the conference technical committee, and if accepted, will be published in the conference proceedings. The author will give a presentation based on the paper, at the 38th ISSC.


Discussion-oriented forums in which either a series of related presentations are delivered by a small number of experts (panelists), or a general topic is discussed somewhat informally by any or all participants. Discussions are led by a facilitator and are normally 1.5 hours in length.


These are half-day (3 hours) or one-day (6 hours) forums focused on areas in which we hope to advance the discipline of system safety.
