Press release:

21st Ada-Europe Conference on Reliable Software Technologies

International experts meet in Pisa

Pisa (6 June 2016) - Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna and Ada-Europe organize
from 13 to 17 June 2016 the "21st International Conference on Reliable
Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2016" in Pisa, Italy.  The event
is organized in cooperation with the Ada Resource Association (ARA),
and with ACM's Special Interest Groups on Ada (SIGAda), on Embedded
Systems (SIGBED), and on Programming Languages (SIGPLAN).

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.

This year's conference offers two days of parallel tutorials,
a workshop, three keynotes, a full technical program of refereed
papers and industrial presentations, an industrial exhibition and
vendor presentations, and a social program.

Eight excellent tutorials on Monday and Friday cover a broad range of
topics: Embedded ARM Programming with Ada 2012; Parallelism in Ada,
C, Java and C#, Today and Tomorrow; A Semi-formal Approach to Software
Development; Software Test and Verification Techniques for Dependable
Systems; Ada 2012 (Sub)types and Subprogram Contracts in Practice;
Towards Energy Awareness and Predictability in the Linux Kernel;
Access Types and Memory Management in Ada 2012; Using Gnoga for
Desktop/Mobile GUI and Web development in Ada.

In addition, on Friday the conference hosts for the 3rd consecutive
year the International Workshop on "Challenges and new Approaches
for Dependable and Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering" (De-CPS 2016).

Three eminent keynote speakers have been invited to open each day of
the core conference program.  Alan Burns, in "Why the Expressive Power
of Languages such as Ada is needed for Future Cyber Physical Systems",
shows how Ada provides programming abstractions to exploit the wealth
of real-time scheduling theory available to obtain efficient resource
utilization.  Valerio Giorgetta, in "Challenges for the Automotive
Platform of the Future", shows how cars will be impacted by the
various technologies currently in development.  Marc Duranton, in
"The HiPEAC Vision", presents the roadmap of the European Network on
High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation to address
the upcoming challenges in computing systems.

The technical program presents 12 refereed and carefully selected
papers on the latest research, new tools, applications and industrial
practice and experience, a collection of 8 industrial presentations
reflecting current practice and challenges, 2 presentations and
a discussion in a special "Ada & Parallelism" session, a project
presentation and a poster session, and vendor presentations.  Springer
Verlag publishes keynote talks and all peer-reviewed papers in the
proceedings of the conference, as LNCS Vol. 9695.  The remainder
of the proceedings will be published in the Ada User Journal, the
quarterly magazine of Ada-Europe.

The industrial exhibition opens Tuesday morning and runs until the
end of Thursday afternoon.  Exhibitors include AdaCore, Ansys/Esterel,
PTC Developer Tools, Rapita Systems, Vector Software, and Ada-Europe.

The social program includes a Welcome Reception on Tuesday evening
in the garden of the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, and on Wednesday
evening the traditional Ada-Europe Conference Banquet will be held
at the cloister of Santa Maria del Carmine in the pedestrian area
in the center of Pisa close to the Arno river.  Each day, coffee
breaks in the exhibition area and sit-down lunches offer ample time
for interaction and networking.

The Best Paper Award will be presented during the Conference Banquet,
the Best Presentation Award during the Closing session.

The conference is hosted by the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, an
internationally renowned university school located in the heart of
Pisa.  The Scuola can be easily reached from the Campo dei Miracoli
airport or the railway station.

The full program is available on the conference web site.
