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.

                   Call for Industrial Presentations

                    18th International Conference on
            Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2013

                    10-14 June 2013, Berlin, Germany


           Organized by Ada-Germany on behalf of Ada-Europe,
            in cooperation with ACM SIGAda, SIGBED, SIGPLAN

                *** DEADLINE Monday 14 JANUARY 2013 ***


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.

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
(  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

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
