Call for Participation
11th International Real-Time Applications Workshop
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)
explore the use of Ada 95 in developing multi-tasking components which are resilient to software design errors and
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.
