Meet ISO 26262 working group Committee Members and get the opportunity to clarify doubts in this open session. Participants will be asked to choose two from the six tables available, each one moderated by an expert who specializes on a specific section of ISO 26262. There are 25 minutes allotted for each table discussion participants choose.

Break for Switching 04:45pm – 04:50pm
Session II 04:50pm – 05:15pm
End of open session 05:15pm

How it works: Automotive IQ will send all participants a questionnaire three weeks before the conference starts to ask them which paragraphs of the ISO26262:2018 standard they would like to see addressed. After receiving the information, they will be sent to the working group members of the international ISO 26262 working group (ISO/TC 022/SC 32/WG 08 "Functional safety") to decide which sections to cover in those 25-minute slots
