CONFERENCE RATIONALE AND SCOPE
The "Ada in Aerospace" conference was arranged by Eurospace for the first time in 1990 and yearly instantiations have since then attracted not only Ada language specialists, users inside the aerospace community, compiler and CASE tool vendors but also software developers, managers and tool providers from a broader application community with coding language non-specific contributions, interests and needs.
In addition Eurospace arranged in 1987 and repeated in 1994 the "On-Board Data Management Symposium" which has proven the need for a frequent conference covering a wider range of aspects related not only to software but to computer based applications and technologies in general.
Aerospace and transportation are application areas well-known for the high demands on reliability and safety, requirements which are increasingly also being coupled with the need for high performance. However, it is our aim also to include other application areas and related technologies with similar characteristics.
The conference will present application engineering and management experience of a generic nature and technologies (methods, tools and components) of high quality.
The conference will focus on computer based applications and technologies. Both software and hardware aspects are included to the level of design methods and implementation languages plus associated testing.
TECHNOLOGY THEMES (METHODS, TOOLS, ETC.)
- Software Engineering Lifecycle Phases, methods and tools: Requirements, design, coding, test, etc.
- Case Tools
- Languages: Ada, C++, VHDL, etc.
- ASIC design methods and tools, testing
- Prototyping and Simulation
- Reusability, COTS/OTS
- Reverse Engineering
- Process Modeling
- Real time aspects and Runtime Kernels
- Data Handling System Architectures: Processors, Bus systems, etc.
- Communication facilities
- Command and Telemetry facilities
- High Speed, high performance support
- Fault Tolerance System
- Guidance, Navigation and Control
- Image and Signal Processing
- GIS/Earth Observation Applications
- Operations including check-out
Management and QA
- Software Best Practice and Quality
- Standards: ECSS, ISO 9000, CMM, etc.
- Quality assurance, metrics
- Configuration Management
- Reliability and Safety
- Training and Education
- Management aspect for small and large projects
- On-board and On-Ground: Satellite and Manned Space Systems
- Scientific and application missions
- Small and Micro-satellites
- Earth Observation/Remote Sensing, Meteorology, etc.
- Avionics Systems
- Air Traffic Control
- Transportation: Train, Ships, etc.
CONFERENCE OPENING AND REGISTRATION
Registrations will commence on May 20 in the late afternoon.
The conference will be opened Monday night with an inaugural speech by Mr. Le Fevre, Director of ESTEC.
En suite there will be two keynote addresses:
New generation aircraft task force, by Mr. Talbot, European Commission;
Requirements for and implications of small and autonomous S/C's.
Monday night will close with a reception arranged by Eurospace.
PAPER PRESENTATION SESSIONS
Three full days are assigned to paper presentation sessions. Each presentation will have a duration of 30 minutes including time for discussion (about 10 minutes).
The paper abstracts will be printed and made available at the Conference registration desk.
Session topics will be derived from the technology themes and application areas. Some session will be initiated with invited papers given by specialists in the field.
PROCESS IMPROVEMENT EXPERIMENT
For one or two sessions a Process Improvement Experiment will be executed. A consultant assigned by the European Commission will revise the abstracts to identify key topics and suggest to the authors a format whereby commonality and differences between topics are highlighted and high quality and coherent presentation is obtained.
Papers of good quality which for reasons of quantity cannot be integrated into the sessions may be announced through a poster abstract and availability of the paper for handout.
VENDOR AND TOOL EXHIBITIONS
The exhibition area will be situated close to the conference room. Special hours twice a day will be dedicated to visits to this area where also coffee breaks take place.
Companies can display their offerings in the fields of software, hardware tools and components, e.g.: compilers, databases, on-board computers, microsatellites, etc.
Eurospace will support the arrangement of Working Group meetings to be held in connection with the conference. This may encompass Standardisation Boards, specific method or language working groups, etc.
Such meetings may take place on Monday, Friday and during the Conference.
One or two panel sessions will be held in the late afternoon on May 21 and/or 22. They are arranged as round table discussions amongst and mixed with short presentations by a small group of panel members and - hopefully - frequent and important contributions from the audience.
Topics are selected amongst or derived from the technological themes or application areas. Suggested topics are presently "Autonomous Systems" and "What will have to change to make it cheap".
Panel members will be selected from organisations and companies present at the conference.
All conference facilities are located at the Hotel Parco dei Principi in the centre of Rome where also hotel accommodation is arranged.
The official language will be English.
CALL FOR PAPERS
Speakers are invited to announce their intention of submitting a paper as soon as possible, and, at the latest, by sending an extended abstract (3 to 5 A4 pages) to EUROSPACE by January 31, 1996. The first page of the abstract must contain at the top quarter the following: title of paper, authors full name and affiliation, mail address, phone and fax. This abstract will be the basis for selection.
Final selection and distribution of the full Conference Programme will take place in March 1996.
Abstracts of selected papers will be distributed at the Conference start.
Authors will be requested to give their full text to the Organisers at the Conference.
Full proceedings will be published after the Conference.
