Symposium on Highly Automated Driving Challenges
28-29 October 2018 | Washington, D.C.

Hosted by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) the symposium investigated the rapidly increasing presence of autonomous systems driven by the confluence of advancements in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that creates fundamental societal and technical challenges that intertwine liability, certification, assurance and policy issues. The workshop brought together research organizations and public authorities from US and Germany to discuss these challenges for the specific context of highly autonomous driving and will identify synergy potentials and differences in research approaches of both nations.


The PIRE Science of Design for Societal-Scale CPS Project Kickoff Meeting was held Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the Westin Alexandria in Alexandria, Virginia. The program agenda for the kickoff meeting can be found online at
