*** FIRST DEADLINE 15
The 19th International Conference on Reliable Software
Technologies- Ada-Europe 2014 will take place in Paris, France. As per its traditional style, the conference
will span a full week, including, from Tuesday to Thursday, three days of
parallel scientific, technical and industrial programs, along with tutorials
and workshops on Monday and Friday.
15 December 2013: Submission of regular papers, tutorial and
workshop proposals (firm deadline)
19 January 2014:
Submission of industrial presentation proposals
16 February 2014: Notification of acceptance to all authors
16 March 2014: Camera-ready
version of regular papers required
18 May 2014: Industrial presentations, tutorial and workshop
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.
Topics of interest to this edition of the conference include
but are not limited to:
- Multicore and Manycore Programming: Predictable
Multicore and Manycore Systems, Parallel Programming
- Real-Time and Embedded Systems: Real-Time Scheduling,
Architecture Modelling, HW/SW Co-Design, Reliability

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 not exceed 14 LNCS-style pages in length.
Authors shall submit their work via EasyChair following the relevant
link on the conference web site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ae20140).
The format for submission is solely PDF.
The conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at the
start of the conference. 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 March
16, 2014. 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 by that date will prevent the paper from appearing in the
The CORE ranking (dated 2008) has the conference in class A.
The CiteSeerX Venue Impact Factor had it in the top quarter. Microsoft Academic
Search has it in the top third for conferences on programming languages by
number of citations in the last 10 years. The conference is listed in DBLP,
SCOPUS and Web of Science Conference
Proceedings Citation index, among others.
Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular
paper and the best presentation.
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 January 19, 2014. Submissions shall be made via EasyChair
following the relevant link on the conference web site. 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 May 18, 2014, 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,
which will host the proceedings of the Industrial Program of the
Conference. For any further information
please contact the Industrial Chair directly.
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 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 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 at either end of the
conference week. Workshop proposals should
be submitted to the General Chair. The
workshop organizer shall also commit to preparing proceedings for timely
publication in the Ada User Journal.
Call for Exhibitors
The commercial exhibition 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 Reduced Student Fees
A limited number of sponsored grants for reduced fees is
expected to be available for students who would like to attend the conference
