*** Topics

The conference is an established international forum for providers,
practitioners and researchers in reliable software technologies.
The conference presentations will illustrate current work in
the theory and practice of developing, running and maintaining
challenging long-lived, high-quality software systems for a variety
of application domains including manufacturing, robotics, avionics,
space, health care, transportation, cloud environments, smart energy,
serious games. The program will allow ample time for keynotes, Q&A
sessions and discussions, and social events. Participants include
practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government
organizations active in the promotion and development of reliable
software technologies.

The topics of interest for the conference include but are not
limited to:

- Real-Time and Safety-Critical Systems: design, implementation and
verification challenges, novel approaches, e.g., Mixed-Criticality
Systems, novel scheduling algorithms, novel design and analysis
methods;

- High-Integrity Systems and Reliability: theory and practice
of High-Integrity Systems, languages vulnerabilities and
countermeasures, architecture-centred development methods and tools;

- Reliability-oriented Programming Languages (not limited to Ada):
compilation and runtime challenges, language profiles, use cases
and experience reports, language education and training initiatives;

- Experience Reports: case studies, lessons learned, and comparative
assessments.

Refer to the conference website for the full list of topics.

*** Call for Journal-track Submissions

Following the journal-first model inaugurated in 2019, the
conference includes a journal-track that seeks original and
high-quality submissions that describe mature research work in
the scope of the conference. Accepted papers for this track will
be published in the "Reliable Software Technologies (AEiC2022)"
Special Issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA).
General information for submitting to the JSA can be found at
https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-systems-architecture.
Submissions should be made online at
https://www.editorialmanager.com/jsa/ by selecting
the "VSI:AEiC2022" option for the paper type.

In order to speed up publication, the JSA has adopted the Virtual
Special Issue model, whereby acceptance decisions are made on a
rolling basis. On that account, authors are encouraged to submit
as early as they can, no later than 16 January 2022. Authors who
have successfully passed the first round of review will be invited to
present their work at the conference. Ada-Europe, the main conference
sponsor, will cover the Open Access fees for the first four papers to
gain final acceptance, which do not already enjoy OA from personalized
bilateral agreements with the Publisher.

Prospective authors may direct all enquiries regarding this track to
the corresponding chair, Jérôme Hugues, at the listed address.

*** Call for Industrial-track Submissions

The conference seeks industrial practitioner presentations that
deliver insight on the challenges of developing reliable software.
Given their applied nature, such contributions will be subject to
a dedicated practitioner-peer review process. Interested authors
shall submit a short (one-to-two pages) abstract, by 27 February
2022, via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aeic2022,
strictly in PDF, following the Ada User Journal style
(cf. http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/).

The abstract of the accepted contributions will be included in the
conference booklet. The corresponding authors will get a presentation
slot in the prime-time technical program of the conference, and will
also be invited to expand their contributions into full-fledged
articles for publication in the Ada User Journal, which will form
the proceedings of the Industrial track of the Conference.

Prospective authors may direct all enquiries regarding this track to
the corresponding chair, Alejandro R. Mosteo, at the listed address.

*** Call for Work-in-Progress-track Submissions

The Work-in-Progress track seeks two kinds of submissions: (a) ongoing
research, and (b) early-stage ideas. Ongoing research submissions are
4-page papers that describe research results that are not mature enough
to be submitted to the journal track as yet. Early-stage ideas, are
1-page papers that pitch new research directions that fall in the scope
of the conference. Both kinds of submission must be original and shall
undergo anonymous peer review. Submissions by recent MSc graduates and
PhD students are especially sought. Authors shall submit their work by
27 February 2022, via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aeic2022,
strictly in PDF, following the Ada User Journal style
(cf. http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/).

The abstract of the accepted contributions will be included in the
conference booklet. The corresponding authors will get a presentation
slot in the prime-time technical program of the conference, and will
also be offered the opportunity to expand their contributions into
4-page articles for publication in the Ada User Journal, which will
form the proceedings of the WiP track of the Conference.

Prospective authors may direct all enquiries regarding this track to
the corresponding chair, Frank Singhoff, at the listed address.

*** Academic Listing

The Journal of Systems Architecture, publication venue of the
journal-track proceedings of the conference, was ranked Q1 (SJR) in
the year 2020, also featuring 72th percentile in CiteScope (Scopus).
The Ada User Journal, venue of all other technical proceedings of
the conference, is indexed by Scopus and by EBSCOhost in the Academic
Search Ultimate database.

*** Awards

Ada-Europe will offer an honorary award for the best technical
presentation, to be announced in the closing session of the conference.

*** Call for Tutorials

The conference seeks tutorials in the form of educational seminars
on themes falling within the conference scope, with an academic
or practitioner slant, including hands-on or practical elements.
Tutorial proposals shall include a title, an abstract, a description of
the topic, an outline of the presentation, the proposed duration (half
day or full day), the intended level of the contents (introductory,
intermediate, or advanced), and a statement motivating attendance.
Tutorial proposals shall be submitted by e-mail to the Workshop and
Tutorial Chair, Aurora Agar Armario, at the listed address, with
subject line: "[AEiC 2022: tutorial proposal]".

The authors of accepted full-day tutorials will receive a complimentary
conference registration, halved for half-day tutorials. The Ada
User Journal will offer space for the publication of summaries of
the accepted tutorials.

*** Call for Workshops

The conference welcomes satellite workshops centred on themes that
fall within the conference scope. Proposals may be submitted for
half- or full-day events, to be scheduled at either end of the
conference proper. Workshop proposals shall be submitted by e-mail
to the Workshop and Tutorial Chair, Aurora Agar Armario, at the
listed address, with subject line: "[AEiC 2022: workshop proposal]".
Workshop organizers shall also commit to producing the proceedings
of the event, for publication in the Ada User Journal.

*** Call for Exhibitors

The conference will include a vendor and technology exhibition.
Interested providers should direct inquiries to the Exhibition Chair.

*** Venue
