The 23rd International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
- Ada-Europe 2018 will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, from June 18
to 22.  As per its traditional style, the conference will span a full
week, including, from Tuesday to Thursday, three days of scientific,
technical and industrial programs, along with tutorials and workshops
on Monday and Friday.

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 available on the conference web site,
such as an overview of the program, the list of accepted papers and
industrial presentations, and descriptions of workshops, tutorials,
keynote presentations, and social events.  Also check the conference
