This call for industrial presentations is specifically targeted
to those of you who either work on industrial projects (possibly
Ada-related) where reliable software is important, or know people
working on such projects.

Please think for a moment what others might learn from the experience
gained in those projects, and get a presentation overview submitted
at the latest on January 12th, i.e. one week from now.

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.

We're looking forward to receive many interesting presentations.

                 2nd Call for Industrial Presentations

                    14th International Conference on
            Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2009

                     8-12 June 2009, Brest, France

                        Organized by Ada-Europe,
                     in cooperation with ACM SIGAda

                *** DEADLINE Monday 12 JANUARY 2009 ***

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

General Information
-------------------
The 14th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
(Ada-Europe 2009) will take place in Brest, France.  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
Friday.

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

Schedule
--------
  12 January 2009:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
  09 February 2009: Notification to all authors
  11 May 2009:      Industrial presentations required
  8-12 June 2009:   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 12 January 2009.  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 2009, 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 technologies.  To mark the completion
of the Ada language standard revision process, contributions that
present and discuss the potential of the revised language are
particularly sought after.

Prospective contributions should address the topics of interest to the
conference, which include but are not limited to those listed below:

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

- Software Architectures: Design Patterns, Frameworks, Architecture-
  Centered Development, Component and Class Libraries, Component-based
  Design.

- Enabling Technologies: Software Development Environments and Project

  Components.

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

- Embedded Systems: Architecture Modeling, Co-Design, Reliability and
  Performance Analysis.

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

  curriculum; how learning Ada serves the curriculum; what it takes to
  form a fluent Ada user; lessons learned on Education and Training
  Activities with bearing on any of the conference topics.

Awards
------
Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular paper and
the best presentation.
