Press release:

22nd Ada-Europe Conference on Reliable Software Technologies

International experts meet in Vienna

Vienna, Austria (6 June 2017) - TU Vienna and Ada-Europe organize
from 12 to 16 June 2017 the "22nd International Conference on
Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2017" in Vienna, Austria.
The event is organized in cooperation with the Ada Resource Association
(ARA), and with ACM's Special Interest Groups on Ada (SIGAda) 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: Introduction to SPARK 2014; Ada on ARM Cortex-M, a
Zero-Run-Time Approach; Software Measurement for Dependable Software
Systems; Real-Time Parallel Programming with the UpScale SDK; Using
Gnoga for Desktop/Mobile GUI and Web development in Ada; Frama-C,
a Collaborative Framework for C Code Verification; On beyond ASCII:
Characters, Strings, and Ada 2012; Modular Open System Architecture
for Critical Systems.

In addition, on Friday the conference hosts for the 4th consecutive
year the International Workshop on "Challenges and new Approaches
for Dependable and Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering" (De-CPS 2016),
now with a focus on "Transportation of the Future".

Three eminent keynote speakers have been invited to open each day of
the core conference program.

Giovanni Battista Gallus (Array, Italy), in "The laws of robotics
and autonomous vehicles may be much more than three, but don't
panic... yet", will talk about the future European legal framework,
which is relevant for the development of autonomous vehicles, and
especially programming issues.

Thomas Henzinger (IST, Austria), in "Behavioral Software Metrics",
will show how the classical satisfaction relation between programs
and requirements can be replaced by quantitative preference metrics
that measure the "fit" between programs and requirements.

Kay R�mer (TU Graz, Austria), in "Dependable Internet of Things",
will introduce the Dependable Things research center at TU Graz and
present recent results on improving the dependability of wireless
communication and localization, embedded computing, and networked
control for the Internet of Things.

The technical program presents 14 refereed and carefully selected
papers on the latest research, new tools, applications and industrial
practice and experience, a collection of 9 industrial presentations
reflecting current practice and challenges, 4 presentations and a
discussion in a special panel session on "The Future of Safety-Minded
Languages", and vendor presentations.  Springer Verlag publishes all
peer-reviewed papers in the proceedings of the conference, as LNCS
Vol. 10300.  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, PTC Developer
Tools, Rapita Systems, VectorCAST, and Ada-Europe.

The social program includes a Welcome Reception plus robotics
presentations on Tuesday evening at "TU the Sky"; its terraces at
the top of TU Vienna's buildings offer a terrific view on the city.
On Wednesday evening there will be a Vienna bus tour, followed by
the traditional Ada-Europe Conference Banquet, held at a very famous
"Heuriger".  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 TU Vienna at Palais Eschenbach, which is
located near the center of Vienna and can easily be accessed by metro.

The full program is available on the conference web site.
Online registration is still possible.
