General Schedule of Events
The General Schedule of Events shows only the overall view of activities for the Symposium. Details of each track are shown on the individual track pages.
This year our keynote address focusses on advances in engineering education relating to safety engineering. Dr. Marc Rosen of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in Oshawa, Ontario will speak on Improving Safety Aspects of Engineering Programs. Dr. Rosen is a recipient of honours and awards for his work as an engineer and an educator.
Is your product Functionally Safe? This year we are continuing our Functional Safety Program with a special track that includes a featured workshop on EMC for Functional Safety.
It is trivial to show that affordable EMC testing is TOTALLY INADEQUATE, no matter how high the test levels are cranked up.
The Forensics and Failure Analysis track provides an opportunity for the attendee to become familiar with field failure analysis techniques, laboratory analysis techniques and technical aspects of presented failures.
The General Track includes all papers falling into one or more of the topics of interest on our Call For Papers, but not fitting clearly into one of the other four specific tracks, and not a Product Safety Demonstration.
The Medical Devices Track is specialized for those working in the medical devices industries. Sessions will cover IEC 60601-1, 3rd ed., CB scheme related to IEC 60601-1, 3rd ed, ISO 13485:2003, human factors, reliability, risk management, design controls, safety and effectiveness, standards, regulatory requirements.
Attending this training will help fulfil a portion of your training requirements per your Quality System (21CFR820.25), MDD, CMDR, etc., ISO 13485 (6.2.1 & 6.2.2).
Product liability, born in the United States, has, over the years, been exported to Europe, Canada, and virtually the rest of the world. In this increasingly global economy, it is important to understand legal and technical requirements for selling products anywhere in the world.
This is a rare opportunity to hear about these subjects from different country perspectives and understand what the future may bring.
This year we have added a new Feature: Technical Demonstration. Industry Experts will be demonstrating product safety test methods live!
