              11th International Real-Time Applications Workshop

                                         IRTAW 11
                      9 -12 April 2002, Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada

Over  the  last  decade and 1/2,  the  International  Real-Time  Ada Workshops  have  provided  a  focus for identifying issues
with Ada 83 and 95, proposing  solutions  for  those  problems  and evaluating proposed language changes.

Since the standardization of Ada95, the International Real Time Ada workshops have assisted in the review of the real time
portions of the Guidance in the Use of the Ada Programming Language for High Integrity Systems, and has developed the
Ravenscar Tasking Profile.

With the advent of Java and the development of Real Time specifications for Java, the workshop has begun to consider the
integration of embedded Ada and Java systems, and their interoperability.

The goals of the 11th IRTAW are to:

     examine and develop paradigms  for  using  Ada  95  for real-time  single  processor,  multiprocess and distributed
     systems (including issues of  hard  and  flexible scheduling);

     consider reports on experiences with using  Ada  95  on  actual real-time projects;

     identify the benefits  and  impacts  of  using  object-oriented programming in multi tasking (potentially distributed)
     real-time systems;

     explore the use of Ada 95 in  developing  multi-tasking components  which  are  resilient  to  software  design errors and
     hardware failures;

     refine criteria for the use of Ada 95 in high integrity systems, especially those with real-time or embedded attributes;

     review the interactions between exceptions in Ada with those from other languages such as Java and C++;

     examine the issues around the interoperatility of Ada and real time Java embedded systems.

Participation at the Workshop is by invitation following the submission of a Position Paper addressing one or more of the above
topics by 1 November 2001.  Position papers should be between five and ten  pages.   All accepted  papers  will  appear  in
the Workshop Proceedings which will be published as a special edition of Ada Letters.

How to submit:

     Please submit your Position Paper to the Program Chair, Joyce Tokar, [log in to unmask] preferably in Word
