First Workshop on Trustworthy Software and Open Source

23 Mar 2021

Online workshop: March 23rd-25th, 2021 (16:00-17:30 CET each day)

The SWForum project aims to create a self-sustainable online forum that facilitates and encourages both researchers and practitioners as well as projects in software, digital infrastructure and cybersecurity to create intersections of expertise and a multidisciplinary approach to research and innovation. 

In this light, the project is organising a Workshop on trustworthy software and open source.



Nowadays, the increasing importance of software for businesses, industry and the life of common citizens makes the notion of trustworthiness a crucial one. Trustworthy software is that for which some important properties such as correctness, compliance, reliability, availability, performance, safety, security, maintainability, privacy of data, energy efficiency, sustainability, and certified interaction with humans are ensured. 

  • Characteristics of trustworthy software
  • Developing trustworthy software
  • The role of open source in the development of trustworthy software

Workshop Format and Keynote Speakers

The workshop format will be highly interactive and is the first one of a series aiming at triggering the discussion around trustworthy software and the tools and methods to support its development.

An introduction to the workshop will be made by Luis Carlos Busquets Pérez (European Commission).

Four inspiring keynotes will be offered during the workshop.
