Visible to the public Moving forward with DIS and the Building Code

There is a growing sense in the research community that we are, at long last, starting to make some initial technical steps towards the visionary goals identified in the two previous sessions -- on Designed-In Security and Building Codes. This includes progress in a diverse set of contributing HCSS disciplines, including models, languages, analysis and reasoning, lifecycle frameworks, architectural models, modeling of mission requirements and threats, human interaction and usability, tool design, etc.

This panel, comprised of the members of the HCSS Program Committee, will speculate on the goals of DIS and Building Code practices. What, for example, are some early indicators and incremental steps that might signal the best courses of action to pursue the vision? What is our sense, more broadly, of the technical opportunities and barriers to advancing the vision, and what research should be advanced? What are possible business and policy enablers or impediments?

The latter question, regarding the interplay of technology, business, and government requirements, was addressed as part of the "business case" portion of the DIS workshop, which took up ROI, risk factors, and potential benefits from research. Examples of issues include affordability and economic modeling, reputational and brand impacts, measurement challenges, government drivers, and intellectual property protection/loss.
