SIGAda Conference:

(Let me apologize if you receive this or similar messages more than once
as I had a problem with my e-mail verification)

Let me introduce myself.  I am Greg Gicca and am the conference chair
for this years SIGAda conference.  The conference will be held the first
week of November in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.  We will in fact be
right on the bay at a location that is easily accessible from the Tampa
international airport and only 1-1/2 hour drive away from Orlando for
those that might find it more convenient to fly into that airport.

We have 3 very interesting expert keynote speakers that will speak to
issues involved in:

1) Developing and maintaining large safety critical systems with
experience with NASA, Home Land Security and the FAA.
2) Developing certified applications for both safety critical medical
systems and high security research projects for the NSA.
     In this case using the statically verifiable SPARK language.
3) Lastly we have a presentation on a dual perspective from a Raytheon
CTO who has worked on both the government and contractor side of the street.
     This presentation will provide an understanding as to why a program
manager may view the use of Ada as a benefit in a contract proposal and
how a contractor may make a case that it is advantageous to propose the
use of Ada in new project development.

For further details on these speakers, their backgrounds and
presentations, see:


We're actively seeking Technical Articles, Extended Abstracts,
Experience Reports, Panel Sessions, Workshops, and Tutorials on the Ada
programming language and related technologies for developing, analyzing,
