Ada-Europe organizes annual international conferences since the early
80's.  This is the 16th event in the Reliable Software Technologies
series, previous ones being held at Montreux, Switzerland ('96),
London, UK ('97), Uppsala, Sweden ('98), Santander, Spain ('99),
Potsdam, Germany ('00), Leuven, Belgium ('01), Vienna, Austria ('02),
Toulouse, France ('03), Palma de Mallorca, Spain ('04), York, UK ('05),
Porto, Portugal ('06), Geneva, Switzerland ('07), Venice, Italy ('08),
Brest, France ('09), and Valencia, Spain ('10).

The Ada Conference UK is organized roughly every 1.5 years to promote
awareness of the Ada programming language in the UK and to highlight
the increased relevance of Ada in safety- and security-critical
programming.  Previous events were held at Manchester ('06 and '07)
and London ('09).

General Information
The Ada Connection combines the 16th International Conference on
Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2011 - with Ada Conference
UK 2011.  It will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city and
the UK's most popular conference destination.

In traditional Ada-Europe 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 Friday.  The Ada Connection will also encompass technical
and vendor tracks under the banner of Ada Conference UK.

The Ada Connection will thus provide a unique opportunity for
interaction and collaboration between academics and industrial

21 November 2010: Submission deadline for regular papers, tutorial and
                  workshop proposals
08 January 2011:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
08 February 2011: Notification of acceptance to authors
08 March 2011:    Camera-ready version of regular papers required
16 May 2011:      Industrial presentations, tutorial and workshop
                  material required
20-24 June 2011:  Conference

Over the years Ada-Europe has 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 development and
maintenance of long-lived, high-quality software systems for a variety
of established and novel 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.

All contributions, whether regular papers, industrial presentations,
tutorials or workshops, 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
  Engineering, Formal Methods and Supporting Toolsets, Re-engineering
  and Reverse Engineering, Reuse, Software Management.

- Software Architectures: Architectural Styles, Service-Oriented
  Architectures, Cloud Service Model, 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 Technologies.

- 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, Availability,
  Trust and Safety, Language Vulnerabilities.

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

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

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

- The Future of Ada: Glimpses on the ongoing language revision as it
  reaches standardization; 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.

Call for Regular Papers
Authors of regular papers which are to undergo peer review for
acceptance are invited to submit original contributions.  Paper
submissions shall be in English, complete and not exceeding 14
LNCS-style pages in length.  Authors should submit their work via
the Web submission system accessible from the Conference Home page.
The format for submission is solely PDF.  Should you have problems
to comply with format and submission requirements, please contact
the Program Chairs.

The conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at
the start of the conference.  The authors of accepted regular papers
shall prepare camera-ready submissions in full conformance with the
LNCS style, not exceeding 14 pages and strictly by 8 March 2011.
For format and style guidelines authors should refer to
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.  Failure to comply and
to register for the conference by that date will prevent the paper
from appearing in the proceedings.

The conference is ranked class A in the CORE ranking and is listed
among the top quarter of CiteSeerX Venue Impact Factor.

Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular paper and
the best presentation.

Call for Industrial Presentations
The conference also seeks industrial presentations which deliver value
and insight, but may not fit the selection process for regular papers.
Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a short
overview (at least one page) of the proposed presentation by 8 January
2011.  Please follow the submission instructions on the conference
website.  The Industrial Committee will review the proposals and make
the selection.  The authors of selected presentations shall prepare a
final short abstract and submit it by 16 May 2011, aiming at a
20-minute talk.  Accepted authors will also 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

Call for Tutorials
Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the scope of the
conference and may be proposed as either half- or full-day events, to
be scheduled at either end of the conference week.  Proposals should
include a title, an abstract, a description of the topic, a detailed
outline of the presentation, a description of the presenter's lecturing
expertise in general and with the proposed topic in particular, the
proposed duration (half day or full day), the intended level of the
tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or advanced), the recommended
audience experience and background, and a statement of the reasons for
attending.  Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to the Tutorial
Chair.  The authors of accepted full-day tutorials will receive a
complimentary conference registration as well as a fee for every paying
participant in excess of five; for half-day tutorials, these benefits
will be accordingly halved.  The Ada User Journal will offer space for
the publication of summaries of the accepted tutorials.

Call for Workshops
Workshops on themes that fall within the conference scope may be
proposed.  Proposals may be submitted for half- or full-day events, to
be scheduled at either end of the conference week.  Workshop proposals
should be submitted to the Conference Chair.  The workshop organizer
shall also commit to preparing proceedings for timely publication in
the Ada User Journal.

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.

A limited number of sponsored grants for reduced fees is expected to be
available for students who would like to attend the conference or
tutorials.  Contact the Conference Chair for details.
