General Information
The 19th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies
- Ada-Europe 2014 will take place in Paris, France.  As per its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including,
from Tuesday to Thursday, three days of parallel scientific, technical
and industrial programs, along with tutorials and workshops on Monday
and Friday.

8 December 2013:  Submission of regular papers, tutorial and workshop
19 January 2014:  Submission of industrial presentation proposals
16 February 2014: Notification of acceptance to all authors
16 March 2014:    Camera-ready version of regular papers required
18 May 2014:      Industrial presentations, tutorial and workshop
                  material required

The conference has over the years become a leading international
forum for providers, practitioners and researchers in 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 challenging variety of application domains.  The program will
allow ample time for keynotes, Q&A sessions and discussions, and
social events.  Participants include practitioners and researchers
representing industry, academia and government organizations active
in the promotion and development of reliable software technologies.

Topics of interest to this edition of the conference include but are
not limited to:

length.  Authors shall submit their work via EasyChair
following the relevant link on the conference web site
The format for submission is solely PDF.

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 March 16, 2014.
For format and style guidelines authors should refer to
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.  Failure to comply
and to register for the conference by that date will prevent the
paper from appearing in the proceedings.

The CORE ranking (dated 2008) has the conference in class A.

programming languages by number of citations in the last 10 years.
The conference is listed in DBLP, SCOPUS and Web of Science Conference
Proceedings Citation index, among others.

Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular paper and
the best presentation.

Call for Industrial Presentations
The conference seeks industrial presentations which deliver value
and insight but may not fit the selection process for regular
papers.  Authors are invited to submit a presentation outline of
exactly 1 page in length by January 19, 2014.  Submissions shall be
made via EasyChair following the relevant link on the conference web
site.  The Industrial Committee will review the submissions and make
the selection.  The authors of selected presentations shall prepare
a final short abstract and submit it by May 18, 2014, 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.  For any further information please contact the
Industrial Chair directly.

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 General 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
