Scope and Topics

The conference is an established international forum for providers, practitioners and researchers in reliable software technologies. The conference presentations will illustrate current work in the theory and practice of developing, running and maintaining 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 sessions and discussions, and social events. Participants include practitioners and researchers from industry, academia and government organizations active in the promotion and development of reliable software technologies.

The topics of interest for the conference include but are not limited to:

  • 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 methods
  • 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
  • Experience Reports
    • Case studies, lessons learned, and comparative assessments

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)" Special Issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA)
