Ada-Europe 2013 will take place in Berlin, Germany. Following its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including,
from Tuesday to Thursday, three days of parallel scientific, technical
and industrial sessions, along with parallel tutorials and workshops
on Monday and Friday.

Schedule
--------
3 December 2012: Submission of regular papers, tutorial and workshop
proposals

11 February 2013: Notification of acceptance to all authors
10 March 2013: Camera-ready version of regular papers required
11 May 2013: Industrial presentations, tutorial and workshop
material required

Topics
------
The conference has successfully established itself as an international
forum for providers, practitioners and researchers into reliable
software technologies. The conference presentations will illustrate
current work in the theory and practice of the design, development
and maintenance of long-lived, high-quality software systems for a
variety of application domains. The program will allow ample time
for keynotes, Q&A sessions, panel discussions and social events.
Participants will include practitioners and researchers representing
industry, academia and government organizations active in the promotion
and development of reliable software technologies.

To mark the completion of the Ada 2012 standard revision process,
contributions are sought that discuss experiences with the revised
language.

Topics of interest to this edition of the conference include but are
not limited to:

- Multicore Programming: Reliable Parallel Software, Scheduling on
Multi-Core Systems, Compositional Parallelism Models, Performance
Modelling, Deterministic Debugging.

Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at
the start of the conference. The authors of accepted regular papers
shall prepare camera-ready submissions in full conformance with the
LNCS style, not exceeding 14 pages and strictly by March 10, 2013.
For format and style guidelines authors should refer to the following
URL: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Failure to

among others.

Awards
------
Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular paper and
the best presentation.

Call for Industrial Presentations
---------------------------------
The conference also seeks industrial presentations which deliver
value and insight, but may not fit the selection process for
regular papers. Authors of industrial presentations are invited to
submit an overview (at least 1 full page in length) of the proposed
presentation by January 14, 2013, via the EasyChair conference system
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ae13). The Industrial
Committee will review the proposals and make the selection. The
authors of selected presentations shall prepare a final short abstract
and submit it by May 13, 2013, aiming at a 20-minute talk. The authors
of accepted presentations will be invited to submit corresponding
articles for publication in the Ada User Journal, which will host
the proceedings of the Industrial Program of the Conference. For any
further information please contact the Industrial Chair directly.

Call for Tutorials
------------------
Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the scope of the
conference and may be proposed as either half- or full-day events.
Proposals should include a title, an abstract, a description of the
topic, a detailed outline of the presentation, a description of the
presenter's lecturing expertise in general and with the proposed
topic in particular, the proposed duration (half day or full day),
the intended level of the tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or
advanced), the recommended audience experience and background, and a
statement of the reasons for attending. Proposals should be submitted
by e-mail to the Tutorial Chair. The authors of accepted full-day
tutorials will receive a complimentary conference registration as well
as a fee for every paying participant in excess of 5; for half-day
tutorials, these benefits will be accordingly halved. The Ada User
Journal will offer space for the publication of summaries of the
accepted tutorials.

Call for Workshops
------------------
Workshops on themes that fall within the conference scope may be
proposed. Proposals may be submitted for half- or full-day events, to
