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 8th at the latest, i.e. one month 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.

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

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.

08 February 2011: Notification of acceptance to authors
16 May 2011:      Industrial presentations required
20-24 June 2011:  Conference

Submission of Presentations
Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a short
overview (at least one page) of the proposed presentation by 8 January
2011.  The Industrial Committee will review the proposals and make the
selection.  To submit your abstract, please visit:

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 directly.

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 two days (Tuesday & Wednesday) 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.

Conference Topics
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.
