11th International Real-Time Ada Workshop


Workshop Information  Local Hosts 
April 8-12 2002
Club Tremblant
Mt. Tremblant, Quebec, Canada

Over the last decade, the International Real-Time Ada Workshops have provided a focus for identifying problems with Ada 83, proposing solutions for those problems, evaluating proposed language changes and sharing experiences in using Ada 95 in industrial applications.

The goals of the 11th IRTAW are to: 

    Examine and develop paradigms for using Ada 95 for real-time single processor, multiprocess and distributed systems (including issues of hard and flexible scheduling); 

    Consider reports on experiences with using Ada 95 on actual real-time projects; 

    Identify the benefits and impacts of using object-oriented programming in multi tasking (potentially distributed) real-time systems; 

    Explore the use of Ada 95 in developing multi-tasking components which are resilient to software design errors and hardware failures; 

    Refine criteria for the use of Ada 95 in high integrity systems, especially those with real-time or embedded attributes; 

    Review the interactions between exceptions in Ada with those from other languages such as Java and C++; 

    Examine the issues around the interoperatility of Ada and real time Java embedded systems investigate latest developments in safety critical programming theory and techniques. 

Participation at the Workshop is by invitation. Persons interested in participating were requested to submit a Position Paper addressing one or more of the above topics, or another real-time Ada issue. Position papers that were submitted by the deadline were reviewed, and the authors of accepted papers were notified. Accepted papers will appear in the Workshop Proceedings, which will be published (possibly as a special issue of Ada Letters). Individuals interested in participating who did not submit a Position Paper should contact the Programme Committee Chair (tokar@attglobal.net).

Individuals who have been invited still need to register for the workshop.
