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.

For the general track of the conference, topics of interest include but are not limited to Real-Time and Embedded Systems, Mixed-Criticality Systems, Theory and Practice of High-Integrity Systems, Software Architectures, Methods and Techniques for Software Development and Maintenance, Ada Language and Technologies, Software Quality, Mainstream and Emerging Applications, Experience Reports in Reliable System Development, and Experiences with Ada.

This edition of Ada-Europe features a focused Special Session on Reliable and Safe Robotics. Following the increasing trend of robotic systems in industrial and public environments it is more and more important to address software systems to control autonomous vehicles. This special topic discusses issues regarding challenging problems in the field of autonomous navigation and sensor fusion. Topics include (but are not limited to) frameworks for robotics, planning and system modelling, and multi-agent and logistics applications.

The conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at the conference.

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