Topics

In the last decade the conference has established itself as an
international forum for providers and practitioners of, 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 from
industry, academia and government organisations interested in
furthering the development of reliable software technologies.
To mark the completion of the technical work for the Ada language
standard revision process, a special session will be devoted to the
presentation and discussion of the prospects of the revised language
in the landscape of mainstream language technologies.
For papers, tutorials, and workshop proposals, the topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:

Co-Chair Tullio Vardanega, whose address details are on this call as
well as on the conference Home page.
Proceedings

The authors of accepted papers shall prepare their camera-ready
submissions in full conformance with the LNCS style, not exceeding 12
pages and strictly by *March 7, 2005*. Authors should refer to:
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for format and style
guidelines. Failure to comply will prevent the paper from appearing in
the conference proceedings. The conference proceedings including all
accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series by Springer Verlag, which will be available at
the start of the conference. All other accepted contributions will
appear in the Ada User Journal using the relevant format and style.
Awards

Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best paper and the best
presentation, which will be presented during the banquet and at the
close of the conference respectively.
Call for Tutorials

Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the thrust of the
conference and may be proposed as either half- or a 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 Iain Bate. 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 accordingly be halved. The Ada User
Journal will offer space for the publication of summaries of the
accepted tutorial in issues preceding and/or following the conference.
Call for Workshops

Workshops on themes within the conference scope may be arranged to
discuss matters of immediate technical interest as well as to foster
action on longer-term technical objectives. Proposals may be submitted
for half- or full-day workshops, to be scheduled on either ends of the
main conference. Workshop proposals should be submitted by e-mail to
the Program Co-Chair Tullio Vardanega. The workshop organiser shall
also commit to preparing proceedings for timely publication in the Ada
