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

Please think for a moment what others might learn from the experience
gained in those projects, and consider (or convince them) to submit
a one-page presentation overview by January 12th, 1.5 weeks from now.

Many projects could report a lot of valuable experience: sharing it
with others benefits the whole community and might provide useful
feedback as well.

We're looking forward to receive many interesting presentations.

Best wishes for the new year,

Dirk Craeynest, Ada-Europe'2006 Publicity Chair


                 2nd Call for Industrial Presentations

                    11th International Conference on
            Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2006

                    5 - 9 June 2006, Porto, Portugal


                  Organized, on behalf of Ada-Europe,
              by Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto
                     in cooperation with ACM SIGAda

                  *** CfIP in HTML/PDF on web site ***
               *** DEADLINE Thursday 12 JANUARY 2006 ***


General Information
The 11th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
(Ada-Europe 2006) will take place in Porto, Portugal.  Following the
usual style, the conference will span a full week, including a
three-day technical program and vendor exhibitions from Tuesday to
Thursday, along with parallel workshops and tutorials on Monday and

Call for Presentations
In addition to the usual call for papers, and considering the success
achieved in the previous conference, we are having a call for
presentations primarily aimed at industrialists who have valuable
experience to report but who do not wish to write a complete paper.

This separate call for presentations is made for Experience Reports
from Industrial Projects and/or Experiments, Case Studies and
Comparative Assessments, Management Approaches, Qualitative and
Quantitative Metrics and Experience Reports on Education and Training
Activities, with bearing on any of the conference topics.

See below for further details.

12 January 2006: Submission of presentation proposals
20 January 2006: Notification to authors
  28 April 2006: Presentation material required
  5-9 June 2006: Conference

Submission of Presentations
Presenters are invited to submit a one-page overview of the proposed
presentation to Peter Dencker ([log in to unmask]) by January
12th 2006. The Industrial Committee will review the proposals.

The authors of selected presentations shall prepare their final
presentation, together with a short abstract (max 10 lines), by 28th
April 2006; they should aim at a 20 minutes talk. The authors of
accepted presentations will also be invited to derive articles from
them, for publication in the Ada User Journal.

Commercial exhibitions will span the three days of the main conference.
Vendors and providers of software products and services should contact
the Exhibition Chair José Ruiz as soon as possible for further
information and for allowing suitable planning of the exhibition space
and time.

Conference Topics
In the last decade the conference has established itself as an
international forum for providers and practitioners of, 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 from
industry, academia and government organizations interested in
furthering the development of reliable software technologies.
To mark the completion of the technical work for the Ada language
standard revision process, contributions that present and discuss
the potential of the revised language are particularly sought after.

For papers, tutorials, and workshop proposals, the topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

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

- Software Architectures: Patterns for Software Design and Composition,
  Frameworks, Architecture-Centered Development, Component and Class
  Libraries, Component-Based Design

- Enabling Technology: CASE Tools, Software Development Environments
  and Project Browsers, Compilers, Debuggers and Run-time Systems

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

- Critical Systems: Real-Time, Distribution, Fault Tolerance,
  Information Technology, Safety, Security

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

- Ada Language and Technology: Programming Techniques, Object-Oriented
  Programming, Concurrent Programming, Distributed Programming, Bindings
  and Libraries, Evaluation & Comparative Assessments, Critical Review
  of Language Enhancements, Novel Support Technology, HW/SW platforms

- Experience Reports: Experience Reports, Case Studies and Comparative
  Assessments, Management Approaches, Qualitative and Quantitative
  Metrics, Experience Reports on Education and Training Activities with
  bearing on any of the conference topics

Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the thrust of the
conference and may be proposed as either half- or full-day events.
Proposals should include a title, an abstract, a description of the
topic, a detailed outline of the presentation, a description of the
presenter's lecturing expertise in general and with the proposed topic
in particular, the proposed duration (half day or full day), the
intended level of the tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or
advanced), the recommended audience experience and background, and a
statement of the reasons for attending.  Proposals should be submitted
by e-mail to the Tutorial Chair Jorge Real. The providers of full-day
tutorials will receive a complimentary conference registration as well
as a fee for every paying participant in excess of 5; for half-day
tutorials, these benefits will accordingly be halved. The Ada User
Journal will offer space for the publication of summaries of the
accepted tutorial in issues preceding and/or following the conference.

Workshops on themes within the conference scope may be arranged to
discuss matters of immediate technical interest as well as to foster
action on longer-term technical objectives.  Proposals may be submitted
for half- or full-day workshops, to be scheduled on either ends of the
main conference. Workshop proposals should be submitted by e-mail to
the Conference Chair Luís Miguel Pinho. The workshop organizer shall
also commit to preparing proceedings for timely publication in the Ada
User Journal.
