    Press release:

    The Ada Connection = Ada-Europe 2011 + Ada Conference UK 2011

    International experts meet in Edinburgh

    Edinburgh (8 June 2011 20:00) - The Ada Connection, which combines
    the 16th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
    Ada-Europe 2011 - with Ada Conference UK 2011, will take place from
    20 to 24 June in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city and the UK's most
    popular conference destination.

    The Ada Connection is the union of two Ada events that have both
    been very successful in their own right. The Ada-Europe series of
    conferences has become established as an international forum for
    providers, practitioners and researchers in all aspects of reliable
    software technologies. The Ada Conference UK has been running
    in its current form since 2006 as a series of biennial one-day
    events, to highlight the increased relevance of Ada in safety-
    and security-critical systems. By combining these events, the Ada
    Connection will provide a unique opportunity for interaction and
    collaboration between academics and industrial practitioners.

    The conference offers two days of tutorials, three keynotes and
    one invited speaker, a full technical program of refereed papers,
    a collection of industrial presentations, two special panel sessions,
    an industrial exhibition, and a social program.

    The 9 excellent tutorials on Monday and Friday cover a broad range
    of topics: Experimenting with ParaSail - Parallel Specification and
    Implementation Language; Designing and Checking Coding Standards for
    Ada; Programming Distributed Systems with YAMI4; Why and How to Measure
    Non-functional Properties On-target; Hard Real-Time and Embedded
    Systems Programming with Ada; Use of Object-Oriented Technologies
    in High-Reliability Systems; MAST - Predicting Response Times in
    Event-Driven Real-Time Systems; SPARK - The Libre Language and Toolset
    for High-Assurance Software; Distributed Programming Techniques in Ada.

    Three eminent keynote speakers have been selected to open each day
    of the core conference program. Peter Bernard Ladkin (University
    of Bielefeld CITEC and Causalis Limited), a recognised specialist
    in system safety, will present a talk entitled "Functional Safety
    of Software-Based Critical Systems". Pippa Moore (UK Civil Aviation
    Authority), in her talk "Hippocrates and DO-178B", will address the
    issues to be considered when attempting to "do no harm" when developing
    a software system. Jeff O'Leary (US Federal Aviation Administration),
    in his talk "Assuring Software Reliability While Using Web Services
    and Commercial Products" will present a government software procurement
    official's perspective on systems development and quality, and discuss
    the implications, approach and unique issues of building reliable,
    trusted web services using commercial products.

    The technical program presents 12 refereed and carefully selected
    papers on the latest research, new tools, applications and industrial
    practice and experience, a collection of 12 industrial presentations
    reflecting current practice and challenges, vendor presentations,
    a panel session on "Programming Languages Meet Multicore", and a
    panel session on "DO178C and Object-Orientation for Critical Systems".
    Springer Verlag publishes the proceedings of the conference, as LNCS
    Vol. 6652.

    The exhibition opens in the mid-morning break on Tuesday and runs
    continuously until the end of the afternoon break on Wednesday.
    The exhibitors include the following vendors: AdaCore, Altran Praxis,
    Causalis Limited, Ellidiss Software, Green Hills Software, IPL, LDRA,
    Objektum Solutions, Rapita Systems, Resource Engineering, TTE Systems,
    Vector Software, Verocel and Wind River.

    The social program includes on Tuesday evening a welcome reception
    with single malt Scotch whisky tasting in the exhibition area, and on
    Wednesday evening a conference banquet dinner at The Signet Library,
    just below Edinburgh Castle in the center of Edinburgh's Old Town.
    Before the conference banquet, Les Hatton (Kingston University) will
    give a pre-dinner speech entitled "On the Evolution of Unnatural
