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 11th, i.e. one month 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.

                   Call for Industrial Presentations

                    15th International Conference on
            Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2010

                   14 - 18 June 2010, Valencia, Spain


                        Organized by Ada-Europe,
                    in cooperation with ACM SIGAda

                *** DEADLINE Monday 11 JANUARY 2010 ***


General Information
The 15th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2010 will take place in Valencia, Spain.  Following its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including a
three-day technical program and vendor exhibition 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 deliver value and insight, but do
not fit the selection process for regular papers.

11 January 2010:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
01 February 2010: Notification of acceptance to all authors
10 May 2010:      Industrial presentations required
14-18 June 2010:  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 11 January 2010.  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 10 May 2010, 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.

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 gather
experience on the latest periodic revision of the Ada language
standard, contributions that present and discuss the potential of the
revised language are especially welcome.

Prospective contributions should address the topics of interest to the
conference, which for this edition include but are not limited to:

- 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.

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

- Enabling Technologies: Software Development Environments, Compilers,
  Debuggers, Run-time Systems, Middleware Components, Concurrent and
  Distributed Programming, Ada Language and Technology.

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

- Theory and Practice of High-Integrity Systems: Real-Time,
  Distribution, Fault Tolerance, Security, Reliability, Trust and
  Safety, Languages Vulnerabilities.

- Embedded Systems: Multicore Architectures, Architecture Modeling,
  HW/SW Co-Design, Reliability and Performance Analysis.

- Mainstream and Emerging Applications: Manufacturing, Robotics,
  Avionics, Space, Health Care, Transportation, Energy, Games and
  Serious Games, etc.

- Experience Reports: Case Studies and Comparative Assessments,
  Management Approaches, Qualitative and Quantitative Metrics.

- Ada and Education: Where does Ada stand in the software engineering
  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.

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.
