General Information
The 13th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
(Ada-Europe 2008) will take place in Venice, Italy.  Following its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including
a three-day technical program and vendor exhibitions from Tuesday to
Thursday, along with parallel tutorials and workshops on Monday and

Call for Industrial Presentations
In addition to the usual call for papers, the conference also seeks
industrial presentations which may have value and insight, but do not
fit the selection process for regular papers.

 13 January 2008:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
 03 February 2008: Notification to all authors
 11 May 2008:      Industrial presentation material required
 16-20 June 2008:  Conference

Submission of Presentations
Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a short
overview (at least 1 page in size) of the proposed presentation to the
Conference Chair by 13 January 2008.  The Industrial Program Committee
will review the proposals and make the selection.

The authors of selected presentations shall prepare a final short
abstract and submit it to the Conference Chair by 11 May 2008, aiming
at a 20-minute talk.  The authors of accepted presentations will be
invited to derive articles from them for publication in the Ada User
Journal, which will host the proceedings of the Industrial Program of
the Conference.

Call for Exhibitions
Commercial exhibitions 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 in
representation from industry, academia and government organizations
active in the promotion and development of reliable software
