General Information
The 22nd International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2017 will take place in Vienna, Austria.  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 Friday.

15 January 2017:  Submission of papers, industrial presentation,
                  tutorial and workshop proposals
26 February 2017: Notification of acceptance to all authors
19 March 2017:    Camera-ready version of papers required
30 April 2017:    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.

This edition of Ada-Europe features a focused Special Session on
Reliable and Safe Robotics.  Following the increasing trend of robotic
systems in industrial and public environments it is more and more
important to address software systems to control autonomous vehicles.
This special topic discusses issues regarding challenging problems in
the field of autonomous navigation and sensor fusion.  Topics include
(but are not limited to): frameworks for robotics, planning and system
modelling, as well as multi-agent and logistics applications.

For the general track of the conference, topics of interest include
but are not limited to (full list on the website): Real-Time and
Embedded Systems, Mixed-Criticality Systems, Theory and Practice of
High-Integrity Systems, Software Architectures, Methods and Techniques
for Software Development and Maintenance, Formal Methods, Ada
Language and Technologies, Software Quality, Mainstream and Emerging
Applications, Experience Reports in Reliable System Development,
Experiences with Ada.

Call for Regular and Special Session Papers
Authors of papers which are to undergo peer review for
acceptance are invited to submit original contributions
by 15 January 2017.  Paper submissions shall not exceed 14
LNCS-style pages in length.  Authors for both the general track
and the special session shall submit their work via EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaeurope2017.  The format
for submission is solely PDF.

The International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies is
ranked class A in the CORE ranking and Microsoft Academic Search
has it in the top third for conferences on programming languages.
The conference is listed in DBLP, SCOPUS and Web of Science Conference
Proceedings Citation index, among others.

Conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available
at the conference.  Camera-ready accepted papers are due strictly by
19 March 2017 (format guidelines available at the conference site).
Failure to comply and to register for the conference by that date
will prevent the paper from appearing in the proceedings.

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 15 January 2017.
Submissions shall be made via EasyChair following the link
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaeurope2017.  The format
for submission is solely PDF.  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
30 April 2017, 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 (http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/),
which will host the proceedings of the Industrial Program of the
Conference.  For any further information please contact the Industrial
Chair directly.

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

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),

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 (http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/) will offer space for the
publication of summaries of the accepted tutorials.
