Are you working on industrial projects (possibly Ada-related) where reliable software is important? Do you know people working on such projects? Then this call for industrial presentations is specifically targeted to you!
Many projects could report a lot of valuable experience: sharing it with others benefits the whole community and might provide useful feedback to the project as well.
Please check out the appended call, and try to get a presentation overview submitted by January 14th at the latest, i.e. in 3 weeks from now.
Looking forward to receive many interesting presentations.
General Information ------------------- The 18th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies - 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.
Call for Industrial Presentations --------------------------------- In addition to the usual Call for Papers, the conference also seeks industrial presentations which deliver value and insight, but may not fit the selection process for regular papers.
Schedule -------- 14 January 2013: Submission of industrial presentation proposals 11 February 2013: Notification of acceptance to all authors 11 May 2013: Industrial presentations material required
Submission of Presentations --------------------------- 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.
Awards ------ In addition to the award for best regular paper, Ada-Europe will also offer an honorary award for the best presentation, considering both regular and industrial presentations.
Call for Exhibitors ------------------- The commercial exhibition will span the three days of the main conference. Vendors and providers of software products and services should contact the Exhibition Chair for information and for allowing suitable planning of the exhibition space and time.
Conference 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:
- Real-Time and Embedded Systems: Real-Time Software, Architecture Modelling, HW/SW Co-Design, Reliability and Performance Analysis.
- Theory and Practice of High-Integrity Systems: Distribution, Fault Tolerance, Security, Reliability, Trust and Safety, Languages Vulnerabilities.
- Software Architectures: Design Patterns, Frameworks, Architecture- Centered Development, Component and Class Libraries, Component-based Design and Development.
- Methods and Techniques for Software Development and Maintenance: Requirements Engineering, Object-Oriented Technologies, Model-driven Architecture and Engineering, Formal Methods, Re-engineering and Reverse Engineering, Reuse, Software Management Issues.
- Enabling Technologies: Compilers, Support Tools (Analysis, Code/Document Generation, Profiling), Run-time Systems, Distributed Systems, Ada and other Languages for Reliable Systems.
- Software Quality: Quality Management and Assurance, Risk Analysis, Program Analysis, Verification, Validation, Testing of Software Systems.
- Mainstream and Emerging Applications: Manufacturing, Robotics, Avionics, Space, Health Care, Transportation, Energy, Games and Serious Games, etc.
- Experience Reports in Reliable System Development: Case Studies and Comparative Assessments, Management Approaches, Qualitative and Quantitative Metrics.
- Experiences with Ada and its Future: New Language Features, Implementation and Use Issues; Positioning in the Market and in Education; where should Ada stand in the Software Engineering Curriculum; Lessons Learned on Ada Education and Training Activities with bearing on any of the conference topics.
