*** Keynote Talks

In each of the three main conference days, a keynote will be delivered
to address hot topics of relevance in the conference scope, with ample
time for questions and answers. The keynotes will be:

- Ángel Conde, Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence team leader
at IKERLAN (Spain), who will present his work on "Software
reliability in the Big Data era with an industry-minded focus".

- Alfons Crespo, who is with the Institute of Automation and Industrial
Informatics of the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), will
give an answer to the question "Why hypervisor-based approach is the
best alternative for mixed-criticality systems".

- Tucker Taft, who is Director of Language Research at AdaCore (USA),
will talk on "A sampling of Ada 2022".

*** Technical Sessions

Given the current sanitary situation and the need to resort to
a virtual format for the conference, we will all experience the
advantages and benefits of exploring new formats. The technical
sessions are designed with the flipped-conference concept, where
the audience can access the pre-recorded presentation materials in
advance and the live sessions are devoted to short presentations of
the highlights of each contribution, allowing ample time for questions
and answers with the presenter. The recorded materials will also be
available for some time after their sessions. The technical sessions
include papers submitted to the journal track that are heading towards
final acceptance and open-access publication, together with industrial,
invited and vendor presentations.

*** Work-in-Progress Session

The Work-in-Progress session contains contributions of evolving and
early-stage ideas, or new research directions. They are presented in
a special session consisting of a round of very short presentations
of the highlights of each contribution, followed by a poster session
in the same virtual space where the breaks are held.

*** Exhibition

From Tuesday to Thursday the conference platform will provide access
to virtual booths where participants will be able to find information
on the conference exhibitors and chat with them or request meetings.
The virtual break lounge where the breaks and social events will take
place will also have a space for meeting with the exhibitors.

*** Tutorials

Five four-hour parallel tutorials are offered on Monday 7th:

- TU-1: Programming mobile robots with ROS2 and the RCLAda Ada client
library, by Alejandro R. Mosteo

- TU-2: Introduction to the development of safety critical software,
by Jean-Pierre Rosen

- TU-3: Parallel programming with Ada and OpenMP, by Sara Royuela,
S. Tucker Taft, Luis Miguel Pinho

- TU-4: Timing verification from UML & MARTE design models: techniques
& tools, by Laurent Rioux, Julio Medina and Shuai Li

- TU-5: Programming shared memory computers, by Jan Verschelde

*** Social Program

The virtual conference platform will offer a space under the environment to allow informal and lively gathering of
the participants. This space may have different areas, such as
rooms, tables, and corners where a participant can approach to talk
though videoconferencing with participants in the same virtual area.
This facility will be used for the breaks, poster session, exhibition
and social events. Particular themes for some of the social events
will be announced in the conference platform and in the web page.

*** Further Information

Participation for the full event, including tutorials, is free for
Ada-Europe members and only 60 EUR for all others. Registration is
required for all. The conference web page will shortly give full
