11th International Real-Time Applications Workshop
(IRTAW 11)
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

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) real-time

* explore the use of Ada 95 in developing multi-tasking
components which are resilient to software design errors and
hardware failures;

* 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

How to submit:

Please submit your Position Paper to the Program Chair, Joyce
Tokar, [log in to unmask] preferably in Word Perfect or Word
format. Or mail four paper copies to

Dr. Joyce L. Tokar
PO Box 1352
Phoenix AZ 85001-1352

All the papers must be written in English. The top of the first
page of the paper should include the title of the paper, the
author(s)'s name(s), position, organization, address, telephone
number(s), fax number(s), and the email address for the author
responsible for correspondence.
