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.

Consider what others might learn from the experience gained in those
projects, and please try to get a presentation overview submitted by
January 12th at the latest, i.e. four 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 to the project as well.

We're looking forward to receiving many interesting presentations.

                   Call for Industrial Presentations

                    17th International Conference on
            Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2012

                   11-15 June 2012, Stockholm, Sweden


                        Organized by Ada-Europe,
            in cooperation with ACM SIGAda, SIGBED, SIGPLAN

               *** DEADLINE Thursday 12 JANUARY 2012 ***


General Information
The 17th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2012 will take place in Stockholm, Sweden.  Following its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including,
from Tuesday to Thursday, three days of parallel scientific, technical
and industrial programs, 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 deliver value and insight, but may not
fit the selection process for regular papers.

12 January 2012:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
3 February 2012:  Notification of acceptance to all authors
11 May 2012:      Industrial presentations required

Submission of Presentations
Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a short
overview (at least 1 page in size) of the proposed presentation by
January 12, 2012.  Please use the EasyChair conference system at .
The Industrial Committee will review the proposals and make the

The authors of selected presentations shall prepare a final short
abstract and submit it by May 11, 2012, 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.
For any further information please contact the Industrial Chair

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.

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 Conference 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 mark the completion of the technical work for the Ada 2012 standard
revision process, contributions that discuss the potential of the
revised language are sought after.  In parallel, facing the challenges
presented to the development of reliable concurrent software, multicore
programming models is added to the conference topics of interest.

Topics of interest to this edition of the conference include but are
not limited to:

- Multicore Programming Models: Reliable Parallel Software, Parallel
  Execution of Ada Programs, Compositional Parallelism Models,
  Performance Modelling, Deterministic Debugging.

- Real-Time and Embedded Systems: Real-Time Software, Architecture
  Modeling, HW/SW Co-Design, Reliability and Performance Analysis.

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

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

- 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.

- Enabling Technologies: Compilers, Support Tools (Analysis,
  Code/Document Generation, Profiling), Run-time Systems, Distributed
  Systems, Ada and other Languages for Reliable Systems.

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

- 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.

- The Future of Ada: New language features, implementation and use
  issues; positioning in the market and in education; where should
  Ada stand in the software engineering curriculum; lessons learned
  on Ada Education and Training Activities with bearing on any of
  the conference topics.
