    *** General Information

    The 28th Ada-Europe International Conference on Reliable Software
    Technologies (AEiC 2024) will take place in Barcelona, Spain.
    The conference schedule comprises a keynote and an invited talk,
    a panel with invited experts, a journal track, an industrial track,
    a work-in-progress track, a vendor exhibition, parallel tutorials and
    hackaton, and satellite workshops. There will be time for networking
    during breaks and lunches, as well as various social events.

    AEiC 2024 is the latest in a series of annual international conferences
    started in the early 80's, under the auspices of Ada-Europe, the
    international organization that promotes knowledge and use of the Ada programming language and reliable software in general, into academic
    education and research, and industrial practice.

    The Ada-Europe series of conferences has over the years become
    a leading international forum for providers, practitioners and
    researchers in reliable software technologies. These events
    highlight the increased relevance of Ada in general and in safety-
    and security-critical systems in particular, and provide a unique
    opportunity for interaction and collaboration between academics and
    industrial practitioners.

    The 2024 edition of the conference continues a number of important
    innovations started in previous years:
    - reduced conference registration fee for all authors;
    - low registration fee for all tutorials and workshops;
    - journal-based open-access publication model for peer-reviewed papers;
    - compact program with two core days (Wednesday & Thursday);
    - tutorials on Tuesday, followed by welcome event for all participants;
    - workshops on Friday, optional chill event on Thursday evening.

    *** Overview of the Week

    - Tue 11: six half-day tutorials, full-day hackaton, welcome reception
    - Wed 12: core technical program, conference banquet
