I think, the concept of "Functional Safety" as described by IEC 61508 and the concept of "Reliability" are two different subjects. A "safety system" need not be very reliable, but if it fails, it should "fail safely". On the other hand a highly reliable system also could fail and cause hazards if not designed (per safety standards namely IEC 61508, ISO 26262 etc.) to fail safely. I just registered for this seminar. I would be interesting to see how this two concepts are discussed.
