Call for Technical Contributions -- SIGAda 2009

ACM Annual International Conference on Ada and Related Technologies:
Engineering Safe, Secure, and Reliable Software

Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel
Tampa Bay, Florida USA
November 1-5, 2009

Submission Deadline: June 30, 2009
Sponsored by ACM SIGAda
in cooperation with SIGCAS, SIGCSE, SIGPLAN, Ada-Europe, and Ada 
Resource Association

http://www.acm DOT org/sigada/conf/sigada2009

SUMMARY: Reliability, safety, and security are among the most critical 
requirements of contemporary software. The application of software 
engineering methods, tools, and languages all interrelate to affect how 
and whether these requirements are met.

Such software is in operation in many domains of application. Much has 
been accomplished in recent years, but much remains to be done. Our 
tools, methods, and languages must be continually refined; our 
management process must remain focused on the importance of reliability, 
safety, and security; our educational institutions must fully integrate 
these concerns into their curricula.

The conference will gather industrial and government experts, educators, 
software engineers, and researchers interested in developing, analyzing, 
and certifying reliable, safe, secure software. We are soliciting 
technical papers and experience reports with a focus on, or comparison 
with, Ada.

We are especially interested in experience in integrating these concepts 
into the instructional process at all levels.

POSSIBLE TOPICS INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

* Transitioning to Ada 2005

* Challenges for developing reliable, safe, secure software

* Ada and SPARK in the classroom and student laboratory

* Language selection for highly reliable systems

* Mixed-language development

* Use of high reliability subsets or profiles such as MISRA C, 
Ravenscar, SPARK

* High-reliability standards and their issues

* Software process and quality metrics

* System of Systems

* Real-time networking/quality of service guarantees

* Analysis, testing, and validation

* Use of ASIS for new Ada tool development

* High-reliability development experience reports

* Static and dynamic analysis of code

* Integrating COTS software components

* System Architecture & Design

* Information Assurance

* Ada products certified against Common Criteria / Common Evaluation 
Methodology

* Distributed systems

* Use of new Ada 2005 features/capabilities

* Fault tolerance and recovery

* Performance analysis

* * * * * * * * * *

KINDS OF TECHNICAL CONTRIBUTIONS:

TECHNICAL ARTICLES present significant results in research, practice, or 
education. Articles are typically 10-20 pages in length. These papers 
will be double-blind refereed and published in the Conference 
Proceedings and in ACM Ada Letters. The Proceedings will be entered into 
the widely-consulted ACM Digital Library accessible online to university 
campuses, ACM's 80,000 members, and the software community.

EXTENDED ABSTRACTS discuss current work for which early submission of a 
full paper may be premature. If your abstract is accepted, you will be 
expected to produce a full paper, which will appear in the proceedings. 
Extended abstracts will be double-blind refereed. In 5 pages or less, 
clearly state the work's contribution, its relationship with previous 
work by you and others (with bibliographic references), results to date, 
and future directions.

EXPERIENCE REPORTS present timely results on the application of Ada and 
related technologies. Submit a 1-2 page description of the project and 
the key points of interest of project experiences. Descriptions will be 
published in the final program or proceedings, but a paper will not be 
required.

PANEL SESSIONS gather a group of experts on a particular topic who 
present their views and then exchange views with each other and the 
audience. Panel proposals should be 1-2 pages in length, identifying the 
topic, coordinator, and potential panelists.

WORKSHOPS are focused work sessions, which provide a forum for 
knowledgeable professionals to explore issues, exchange views, and 
perhaps produce a report on a particular subject. A list of planned 
workshops and requirements for participation will be published in the 
Advance Program. Workshop proposals, up to 5 pages in length, will be 
selected by the Program Committee based on their applicability to the 
conference and potential for attracting participants.

TUTORIALS offer the flexibility to address a broad spectrum of topics 
relevant to Ada, and those enabling technologies which make the 
engineering of Ada applications more effective. Submissions will be 
evaluated based on relevance, suitability for presentation in tutorial 
format, and presenter's expertise. Tutorial proposals should include the 
expected level of experience of participants, an abstract or outline, 
the qualifications of the instructor(s), and the length of the tutorial 
(half-day or full-day). Tutorial presenters receive complimentary 
registration to the other tutorials and the conference.

HOW TO SUBMIT: Send contributions by June 30, 2009, in Word, PDF, or 
text format as follows:

Technical Articles, Extended Abstracts, Experience Reports, and Panel 
Session Proposals: Program Chair, Lt. Col. Jeff Boleng (Jeff.Boleng AT 
usafa DOT edu)

Workshop Proposals: Workshops Chair, Bill Thomas (BThomas AT mitre DOT org)

Tutorial Proposals: Tutorials Chair, Richard Riehle (RDRiehle AT nps DOT

FURTHER INFORMATION:

CONFERENCE GRANTS FOR EDUCATORS: The ACM SIGAda Conference Grants 
program is designed to help educators introduce, strengthen, and expand 
the use of Ada and related technologies in school, college, and 
university curricula. The Conference welcomes a grant application from 
anyone whose goals meet this description. The benefits include full 
conference registration with proceedings and registration costs for 2 
days of conference tutorials/workshops.

Partial travel funding is also available from AdaCore to faculty and 
students from GNAT Academic Program member institutions, which can be 
combined with conference grants. For more details visit the conference 
web site or contact Prof. Michael B. Feldman (mfeldman AT gwu DOT edu).

OUTSTANDING STUDENT PAPER AWARD: An award will be given to the student 
author(s) of the paper selected by the program committee as the 
outstanding student contribution to the conference.

SPONSORS AND EXHIBITORS: Please contact Alok Srivastava (Alok.Srivastava 
AT auatac DOT com) for information about becoming a
sponsor and/or exhibitor AT SIGAda 2009.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR NON-US SUBMITTERS: International registrants 
should be particularly aware and careful about visa requirements, and 
should plan travel well in advance. Visit the conference website for 
detailed information pertaining to visas.
