The 21st International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2016 takes place in Pisa, Italy, from June 13 to 17, 2016.
It is an exciting event with an outstanding technical program,
keynote talks, exhibition and networking from Tuesday to Thursday,
and a rich program of workshops and tutorials on Monday and Friday.

The conference is hosted by Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, located in
the heart of Pisa.  The Scuola can be easily reached from the Campo
dei Miracoli airport or the railway station.

The Ada-Europe series of conferences has over the years become
a leading international forum for providers, practitioners and
researchers in reliable software technologies.  These events
highlight the increased relevance of Ada in general and in safety-
and security-critical systems in particular, and provide a unique
opportunity for interaction and collaboration between academics and
industrial practitioners.

Extensive information is already available on the conference web
