General Information
The 15th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2010 will take place in Valencia, Spain. Following its
traditional 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

16 November 2009: Submission of regular papers, tutorial and workshop
11 January 2010: Submission of industrial presentation proposals
01 February 2010: Notification of acceptance to all authors
01 March 2010: Camera-ready version of regular papers required
10 May 2010: Industrial presentations, tutorial and workshop
material required
14-18 June 2010: Conference

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 gather
experience on the latest periodic revision of the Ada language
standard, contributions that present and discuss the potential of the
revised language are especially welcome.

All prospective 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
Architecture and Engineering, Formal Methods, Re-engineering and
Reverse Engineering, Reuse, Software Management Issues.

- Software Architectures: 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 Technology.

- 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, Trust and
Safety, Languages Vulnerabilities.

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

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

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

- Ada and Education: Where does Ada stand in the software engineering
curriculum; how learning Ada serves the curriculum; what it takes to
form a fluent Ada user; lessons learned on 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 1 March 2010. For
format and style guidelines authors should refer to the following URL: Failure to comply and
to register for the conference 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 may deliver
value and insight, but do not fit the selection process for regular
papers. Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a
short overview (at least 1 page in size) of the proposed presentation
to the Conference Chair by 11 January 2010. The Industrial Program
Committee will review the proposals and make the selection. The
authors of selected presentations shall prepare a final short abstract
and submit it to the Conference Chair by 10 May 2010, 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.

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.
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 5; 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.

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