Based on a request of Committees, an Organising Committee of Experts on sofware licensing issues was established to develop a state-of-the-art view of the technological problems and methods for identifying licensing concerns, to formulate plans for an International Workshop and to prepare a state-of-the-art report on safety ciritical software.
In April 1995, the Committee met and planned for a Workshop on the Technical Issues of Computer-Based Systems important to Safety. It was the view of both the CNRA and CSNI that the workshop should include participants from all facets of nuclear industry to obtain as wide a perspective as possible. Further plans were made to incorporatye the results of the Workshop into a state-of-the-art report which to be presented at a CNRA/CSNI Special Issue meeting scheduled for June 1996.
This appendix provides the workshop programme and copies of the papers and presentations, and a list of participants.
