International Symposium on System and Software Reliability


Software and system reliability is the probability of failure-free software and system operation for a given period of time in a specified environment. Many critical systems such as those used in nuclear power plants, transportation, aeronautics, and astronautics are required for reliable operations without failures during their service.

This symposium provides scientists and engineers from both industry and academia a platform to present their ongoing work, relate their research outcomes and experiences, and discuss the best and most efficient techniques for the development of reliable, secure, and trustworthy systems. It also represents an excellent opportunity for the academic community to become more aware of subject areas critical to the software industry as practitioners bring their needs to the table. The 2021 ISSSR will be held from September 23-24, 2021 in Chongqing sponsored by Southwest Jiaotong University.
