                  Organized, on behalf of Ada-Europe,
                       by the University of York,
           in cooperation with ACM SIGAda (approval pending)

                *** DEADLINE Monday 10 JANUARY 2005 ***


General Information
The 10th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
(Ada-Europe 2005) will take place in York, UK.  Following the usual
style, the conference will span a full week, including a three-day
technical program and vendor exhibitions from Tuesday to Thursday,
along with parallel workshops and tutorials on Monday and Friday.

Call for Presentations
In addition to the usual call for papers, this year we are also having
a call for presentations primarily aimed at industrialists who have
valuable experience to report but who do not wish to write a complete

This separate call for presentations is made for Experience Reports
from Industrial Projects and/or Experiments, Case Studies and
Comparative Assessments, Management Approaches, Qualitative and
Quantitative Metrics, Experience Reports on Education and Training
Activities with bearing on any of the conference topics.

See the below for further details.

10 January 2005: Submission of one-page overview
17 January 2005: Notification to authors
    20 May 2005: Presentation required
20-24 June 2005: Conference

Submission of Presentations
Presenters are invited to submit a one-page overview of the proposed
presentation to Rod Chapman ([log in to unmask]) by January
10th 2005.  The Industrial Committee will review the proposals.
The authors of selected presentations shall prepare their final
presentation by 20th May 2005; they should aim to talk for 20 minutes.
The authors of accepted presentations will also be asked to derive
articles from them, for publication in the Ada User Journal.

Commercial exhibitions will span the three days of the main conference.
Vendors and providers of software products and services should contact
the Exhibition Chair Rod Chapman as soon as possible for further
information and for allowing suitable planning of the exhibition space
and time.

Conference Topics
In the last decade the conference has established itself as an
international forum for providers and practitioners of, 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 from
industry, academia and government organizations interested in
furthering the development of reliable software technologies.
To mark the completion of the technical work for the Ada language
standard revision process, a special session will be devoted to the
presentation and discussion of the prospects of the revised language
in the landscape of mainstream language technologies.

The topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited

- Methods and Techniques for Software Development and Maintenance:
  Requirements Engineering, Object-Oriented Technologies, Formal
  Methods, Re-engineering and Reverse Engineering, Reuse, Software
  Management Issues

- Software Architectures: Patterns for Software Design and Composition,
  Frameworks, Architecture-Centered Development, Component and Class
  Libraries, Component-Based Design

- Enabling Technology: CASE Tools, Software Development Environments
  and Project Browsers, Compilers, Debuggers and Runtime Libraries

- Software Quality: Quality Management and Assurance, Risk Analysis,
  Program Analysis, Verification, Validation, Testing of Software

- Critical Systems: Real-Time, Distribution, Fault Tolerance,
  Information Technology, Safety, Security

- Mainstream and Emerging Applications: Multimedia and Communications,
  Manufacturing, Robotics, Avionics, Space, Health Care, Transportation

- Ada Language and Technology: Programming Techniques, Object-Oriented
  Programming, Concurrent Programming, Bindings and Libraries,
  Evaluation & Comparative Assessments, Critical Review of Language
  Enhancements, Novel Support Technology

Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the thrust 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), and the recommended audience experience and background.
Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to the Tutorial Chair Iain
Bate.  The providers of 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, the fee will accordingly be
halved.  The Ada User Journal will offer space for the publication of
summaries of the accepted tutorial in issues preceding and/or following
the conference.

Workshops on themes that fall within the scope of the conference may be
arranged to discuss matters of immediate technical interest as well as
to foster action on longer-term technical objectives.  Proposals may be
put forward for either half- or full-day workshops, to be scheduled on
either ends of the main conference.  Workshop proposals should be
submitted by e-mail to the Program Co-Chair Tullio Vardanega.  The
workshop organizer shall also commit to preparing proceedings for
timely publication in the Ada User Journal.
