C.f.Industrial Pres., Reliable Software Technologies, Ada-Europe 2012

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by Dirk Craeynest, Dec 14, 2011.

  1. 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
    http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaeurope2012 .
    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.
