Software Dependability under Emergency Conditions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceedingpeer-review


Many governmental actors have an operative
responsibility in times of emergency. For this task
they are becoming more and more dependent on IT
systems. First interviews with some emergency
managers show that traditional emergency
management and risk analysis not always manages to
capture this critical dependency. The exact
dependence on IT systems in a crisis is often hard to
predict, and the reliability of these systems under
special emergency conditions is hard to evaluate.
