Autumn School

SAMS Autumn School 2017

Critical Systems Engineering for Socio-technical Systems addresses critical systems, which rely on synergistically blending human skills with IT-enabled capabilities of technical systems to jointly achieve the overarching objectives of the system-of-systems. The socio-technical relationship humans and more and more automated cyber-physical systems is characterized by a synergistic cooperation between humans and their real and digital environment. Engineering such socio-technical Safety Critical systems involves a wide range for foundations from the field of engineering, computer science, cognitive psychology and human computer interaction.

The summer school gives your insights into the engineering of such safety-critical systems from a scientific perspective but also give the opportunity to get hands on latest research prototypes and systems raining from automated driving, maritime navigation to emergency health care.

The summer school is jointly organized by two large research efforts that address the engineering of large cyber-physical systems in  safety-critical domains at the University of Oldenburg and the OFFIS-Institute for IT.

The Interdisciplinary Research Center of “Critical Systems Engineering of Socio-Technical Systems” addresses critical systems, which rely on synergistically blending human skills with IT-enabled capabilities of technical systems to jointly achieve the overarching objectives of the system-of-systems.

The Graduate School “SAMS – Safe Automation of Maritime Systems” facilitates research in the domain of integrated and save maritime supervision, control and assistance technology.

The Summer School on Critical Systems Engineering of Socio-Technical Systems offers

  • lectures delivered by experts from academy and industry providing a clear and in-depth summary of state-of-the-art research in Critical Systems Engineering of Socio-Technical Systems in different challenging domains and
  • visit of scenarios in our driving simulator, ship bridge simulator and reanimation simulator and care lab that gives a first-hand experience on the challenges and design aspects of engineering cooperation between humans and technical systems  in critical domains.

Visit and demo of the Neuro-imaging Unit at the University of Oldenburg combined with a reception
Chaired by Prof. Jochem Rieger

We will make a tour through the Neuro-Imaging Unit including fNIRs, Magnetoezephalography (MEG), Magnet-Resonance-Tomography (MRT) by researchers from applied neuro-cognitive psychology and experimental psychology.


We invite the participants to a nice social dinner in the picturesque center of Oldenburg.
