The 21st International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies – Ada-Europe 2016 will take place in Pisa, Italy. 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.
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. This conference also features a focused Special Session on Safe, Predictable Parallel Software Technologies. Following the intensifying trend of usage of Multi-/Many-core systems, it is increasingly important to assess how reliable software technologies need to adapt to these complex platforms, as well as how parallel models need to adapt to domains in which safety and predictability is a must.
