The 24th International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies -
Ada-Europe 2019 visits Poland, for the first time, and is hosted in
Warsaw from the 11th to the 14th of June.  The conference is the latest
in a series of annual international conferences started in the early
80's, under the auspices of Ada-Europe, the international organization
that promotes knowledge and use of Ada and Reliable Software in
general, into academic education and research, and industrial practice.

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.

Extensive information is on the conference web site, such as an
overview of the program, the list of accepted papers and industrial
presentations, and descriptions of workshops, tutorials, keynote
presentations, and social events.  Also check the conference site
for registration, accommodation and travel information.  The 12-page
Advance Program brochure is available there as well.
