The 22nd International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies - Ada-Europe 2017 will take place in Vienna, Austria. Following its traditional style, the conference will span a full week, including a three-day technical program and vendor exhibition from Tuesday to Thursday, along with parallel tutorials and workshops on Monday and Friday.
22 January 2017: Submission of papers, industrial presentation,
tutorial and workshop proposals
26 February 2017: Notification of acceptance to all authors
19 March 2017: Camera-ready version of papers required
30 April 2017: 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.
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, as well as multi-agent and logistics applications.
For the general track of the conference, topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Real-Time and Embedded Systems: Real-Time Scheduling, Design Methods
and Techniques, Architecture Modelling, HW/SW Co-Design, Reliability

Call for Regular and Special Session Papers
Authors of papers which are to undergo peer review for acceptance are invited to submit original contributions by 15 January 2017. Paper submissions shall not exceed 14 LNCS-style pages in length. Authors for both the general track and the special session shall submit their work via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaeurope2017. The format for submission is solely PDF.
The International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies is ranked class A in the CORE ranking and Microsoft Academic Search has it in the top third for conferences on programming languages.
The conference is listed in DBLP, SCOPUS and Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation index, among others.
Conference proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer, and will be available at the conference. Camera-ready accepted papers are due strictly by
19 March 2017 (format guidelines available at the conference site).
Failure to comply and to register for the conference by that date will prevent the paper from appearing in the proceedings.
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 15 January 2017.
Submissions shall be made via EasyChair following the link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaeurope2017. The format for submission is solely PDF. 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
30 April 2017, 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 (http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/), which will host the proceedings of the Industrial Program of the Conference. For any further information please contact the Industrial Chair directly.
Ada-Europe will offer honorary awards for the best regular paper and the best presentation.
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.
