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.

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
