(Ada-Europe 2009) will take place in Brest, France. Following its
traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including
a three-day technical program and vendor exhibitions from Tuesday to
Thursday, along with parallel tutorials and workshops on Monday and
Friday.

Schedule
--------
01 December 2008: Submission of regular papers, tutorial and workshop
proposals
12 January 2009: Submission of industrial presentation proposals
09 February 2009: Notification to all authors

Topics
------
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, Component and Class Libraries, Component-based
Design

- Enabling Technologies: 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 Features and
Enhancements, Novel Support Technology, HW/SW Platforms

- Experience Reports: Case Studies and Comparative Assessments,
Management Approaches, Qualitative and Quantitative Metrics

Activities with bearing on any of the conference topics.

Call for Regular Papers
-----------------------
Authors of regular papers which are to undergo peer review for
acceptance are invited to submit original contributions. Paper
submissions shall be in English, complete and not exceeding 14
LNCS-style pages in length. Authors should submit their work via
the Web submission system accessible from the Conference Home page.
The format for submission is solely PDF. Should you have problems
to comply with format and submission requirements, please contact
the Program Chair.

Proceedings
-----------
The authors of accepted regular papers shall prepare camera-ready
submissions in full conformance with the LNCS style, not exceeding 14
pages and strictly by 9 March 2009. For format and style guidelines
authors should refer to: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
Failure to comply and to register for the conference will prevent the
paper from appearing in the proceedings. The conference proceedings
will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series by Springer Verlag, and will be available at the start of the
conference.

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

Call for Industrial Presentations
---------------------------------
The conference also seeks industrial presentations which may deliver
value and insight, but do not fit the selection process for regular
papers. Authors of industrial presentations are invited to submit a
short overview (at least 1 page in size) of the proposed presentation
to the Conference Chair by 12 January 2009. The Industrial Program
Committee will review the proposals and make the selection. The
authors of selected presentations shall prepare a final short abstract
and submit it to the Conference Chair by 11 May 2009, aiming at a
20-minute talk. The authors of accepted presentations will be invited
to derive articles from them for publication in the Ada User Journal,
which will host the proceedings of the Industrial Program of the
Conference.

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),
the intended level of the tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or
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 providers of 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 will
offer space for the publication of summaries of the accepted
tutorials.

Call for Workshops
------------------
Workshops on themes that fall within the conference scope may be
proposed. Proposals may be submitted for half- or full-day events, to
be scheduled on either ends of the conference week. Workshop proposals
should be submitted to the Conference Chair. The workshop organizer
shall also commit to preparing proceedings for timely publication in
the Ada User Journal.

Call for Exhibitions
--------------------
Commercial exhibitions will span the three days of the main conference.
Vendors and providers of software products and services should contact
the Exhibition Chair for information and for allowing suitable planning
of the exhibition space and time.

Grants for Students
-------------------
A limited number of sponsored grants is expected to be available for
students who would like to attend the conference or tutorials. Contact
the Conference Chair for details.
