DIRC is an interdisciplinary, multi-site project into the dependability of socio-technical systems. We cover many aspects of dependability form the very beginnings of a system before design has even commenced, during deployment and integration, through upgrading or reconfiguration to replacement or redesign of new systems, and also from many different viewpoints of any given system. DIRC consists of a mix of Computer Scientists, Sociologists, Psychologists, and Mathematicians who have successfully worked together to produce some great pieces of inter-disciplinary work.
In order to communicate our rich collection of work among other people within DIRC, our community, and indeed the outside world, DIRC has held a number of conferences over the five years of it’s life to date. Firstly, we have held annual internal conferences that have proved extremely successful in sharing the results of pieces of work, ongoing ideas of research and longitudinal studies that have been taking place, and also in establishing new collaborations within DIRC and reinforcing our links with our industrial partners. In addition to these annual workshops, we also held our first sixth monthly conference that took place in London in November 2002 as a way of formally presenting our work-to-date within DIRC in readiness for our mid-term review.
Due to a demand from the wider research community DIRC has
also hosted a number of external conferences in order to satisfy an unbridled
interest in the inter-disciplinary work being carried out. Some of these
include the Workshop on Dependability in Healthcare Informatics, the Workshop
on Open Source Software Development, and the HEAT workshop.
