The conference has successfully established itself as an international forum for providers, practitioners and researchers into 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 variety of application domains.

The program will allow ample time for keynotes, Q&A sessions, panel discussions and social events. Participants will include practitioners and researchers in representation from industry, academia and government organizations active in the promotion and development of reliable software technologies. To mark the completion of the Ada language standard revision process, contributions that present and discuss the potential of the revised language are particularly sought after.

Prospective contributions should address the topics of interest to the conference, which include but are not
limited to those listed below:

  • Methods and Techniques for Software Development and Maintenance: Requirements Engineering,Object-Oriented Technologies, Model-driven Architecture and Engineering, Formal Methods, Re-engineering and Reverse Engineering, Reuse, Software Management Issues, Model Engineering.
  • Software Architectures: Design Patterns, Frameworks, Architecture-Centered Development, Componen and Class Libraries, Component-based Design.
  • Enabling Technology: Software Development Environments and Project Browsers, Compilers, Debuggers, Run-time Systems, Middleware Components.
  • Software Quality: Quality Management and Assurance, Risk Analysis, Program Analysis, Verification, Validation, Testing of Software Systems.
  • Theory and Practice of High-integrity Systems: Real-Time, Distribution, Fault Tolerance, Security, Reliability, Trust and Safety.
  • Embedded Systems: Architecture Modeling, Co-Design, Reliability and Performance Analysis.
  • Mainstream and Emerging Applications: Multimedia and Communications, Manufacturing, Robotics, Avionics, Space, Health Care, Transportation.
  • Ada Language and Technology: Programming Techniques, Object-Orientation, Concurrent and Distributed Programming, Evaluation & Comparative Assessments, Critical Review of Language Enhancements, Novel Support Technology, HW/SW Platforms.
  • Experience Reports: Case Studies and Comparative Assessments, Management Approaches, Qualitative and Quantitative Metrics.
