AdaCore Exhibiting and Presenting at ERTS2 2018

Software safety, avionics certification, and static analysis to be addressed at Embedded Real-Time Software and Systems Conference in Toulouse

 AdaCore will be actively participating at the Embedded Real-Time Software and Systems (ERTS2) conference in Toulouse, France, January 31 – February 2, 2018, as an exhibitor and as a contributor to the technical program. Company personnel will be presenting several papers in conjunction with colleagues from other organizations:

  • Software Safety – a Journey across Domains and Safety Standards by Cyrille Comar, co-authored with Jean-Paul Blanquart (Airbus Defence and Space), Emmanuel Ledinot (Dassault Aviation), Jean Gassino (IRSN), Philippe Baufreton (Safran), Jean-Louis Boulanger (CERTIFER), Stéphane Brouste (Groupe PSA), Jean Louis Camus (ANSYS - Esterel Technologies), and Philippe Quéré (Renault);
  • Avionics Certification: Back to Fundamentals with Overarching Properties by Cyrille Comar, co-authored with James Chelini (Verocel), Jean Louis Camus (ANSYS-Esterel Technologies), Duncan Brown (Rolls-Royce), Anne-Perrine Porte (ZODIAC Aerospace), France Miguel De Almeida (APSYS) and Hervé Delseny (Airbus);
  • Safe and Secure Autopilot Software for Drones by  Yannick Moy, co-authored with Amin El Mrabti (Sogilis), Valentin Brossard (Hionos), Denis Gautherot –(SOGILIS) and Frédéric Pothon (ACG Solutions); and
  • Lightweight Checkers in a New Light by Romain Béguet , Clément Fumex and Yannick Moy

ERTS2 2018, the latest in a series of biannual conferences that was initiated in 2002, will be bringing together an international contingent of industrial practitioners and researchers at the forefront of embedded real-time technology.  The conference theme for ERTS2 2018 is autonomous cyber-physical systems, in particular intelligent transport systems, with a focus on certification, safety and security. Conference papers will cover the use of multi- and many-core platforms in such systems; the use of formal methods, modeling, and simulation techniques to support critical systems development; and the application of artificial intelligence technologies and distributed systems.

In parallel with the lectures, a specialized exhibition will offer visitors the opportunity to meet representatives of companies specialized in the development and integration of embedded systems and ready to meet the specific needs of their customers.
