    challenging long-lived, high-quality software systems for a variety
    of application domains including manufacturing, robotics, avionics,
    space, health care, transportation, cloud environments, smart energy,
    serious games. The program will allow ample time for keynotes, Q&A

    - Real-Time and Safety-Critical Systems: design, implementation and
    verification challenges, novel approaches, e.g., Mixed-Criticality
    Systems, novel scheduling algorithms, novel design and analysis

    - High-Integrity Systems and Reliability: theory and practice
    of High-Integrity Systems, languages vulnerabilities and
    countermeasures, architecture-centred development methods and tools;

    - Reliability-oriented Programming Languages (not limited to Ada):
    compilation and runtime challenges, language profiles, use cases
    and experience reports, language education and training initiatives;

    *** Call for Journal-track Submissions

    Following the journal-first model inaugurated in 2019, the
    conference includes a journal-track that seeks original and
    high-quality submissions that describe mature research work in
    the scope of the conference. Accepted papers for this track will
    be published in the "Reliable Software Technologies (AEiC2022)"

    [Submission details removed. Call is closed now.]

    Authors who have successfully passed the first round of review will
    be invited to present their work at the conference. Ada-Europe,
    the main conference sponsor, will cover the Open Access fees for
    the first four papers to gain final acceptance, which do not already
    enjoy OA from personalized bilateral agreements with the Publisher.

    *** Call for Industrial-track Submissions

    The conference seeks industrial practitioner presentations that
    deliver insight on the challenges of developing reliable software.
    Given their applied nature, such contributions will be subject to
    a dedicated practitioner-peer review process. Interested authors
    shall submit a short (one-to-two pages) abstract, by 27 February
    2022, via https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aeic2022,
    strictly in PDF, following the Ada User Journal style
    (cf. http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/).

    The abstract of the accepted contributions will be included in the
    conference booklet. The corresponding authors will get a presentation
    slot in the prime-time technical program of the conference, and will
    also be invited to expand their contributions into full-fledged
    articles for publication in the Ada User Journal, which will form
    the proceedings of the Industrial track of the Conference.

    Prospective authors may direct all enquiries regarding this track to
    the corresponding chair, Alejandro R. Mosteo, at the listed address.

    *** Call for Work-in-Progress-track Submissions

    The Work-in-Progress track seeks two kinds of submissions: (a) ongoing research, and (b) early-stage ideas. Ongoing research submissions are
    4-page papers that describe research results that are not mature enough
    to be submitted to the journal track as yet. Early-stage ideas, are
    1-page papers that pitch new research directions that fall in the scope
    of the conference. Both kinds of submission must be original and shall
    undergo anonymous peer review. Submissions by recent MSc graduates and
    PhD students are especially sought.

    [Submission details removed. Call is closed now.]

    The abstract of the accepted contributions will be included in the
    conference booklet. The corresponding authors will get a presentation
    slot in the prime-time technical program of the conference, and will

    4-page articles for publication in the Ada User Journal, which will
    form the proceedings of the WiP track of the Conference.
