SUMMARY
-------
Constructing high reliability software is an engineering challenge that can 
now be met in many domains. The application of software engineering methods, 
tools, and languages interrelate to make the challenge easier or more 
difficult.

This conference focuses on safety, security and high reliability systems and 
the issues related to their development. Topics such as applied software 
engineering principles, conforming to specific safety or security standards, 
testing philosophies, programming language selection, etc. will be discussed.

The conference will gather industrial experts, educators, software engineers, 
and researchers interested in developing, analyzing, and certifying reliable, 
cost-effective software. Technical or theoretical papers as well as experience 
reports with a focus on, or comparison with, Ada are solicited. Possible 
topics include but are not limited to:

      * Safety, security and high integrity development issues
      * Language selection for a high reliability system:
        Ada, C, C++, Java, C#, or others
      * Use of high reliability subsets or dialects:
        Java HIP, MISRA C, Ravenscar, SPARK, etc.
      * High reliability standards and their issues:
        DO-178B, EIC 61508, FDA, SAE, CC, EAL, etc.
      * Process and quality metrics
      * Analysis, Testing, and Validation
      * Use of ASIS for new Ada tool development
      * Mixed-language development
      * Quality Assurance
      * Performance Analysis

      * High reliability software engineering education
      * High reliability development experience reports
      * Real-time networking/quality of service guarantees
      * Fault tolerance and recovery
      * Distributed system load balancing
      * Static and dynamic code analysis
      * Debugging complex systems
      * Integrating COTS software components
      * System Architecture & Design
      * Information Assurance in the age of terrorism
      * Use of new Ada 2005 features/capabilities
      * Ada products evaluated per Common Criteria, Protection Profiles,
        or Security Targets

HOW YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE
----------------------

SIGAda 2007 is interested in receiving contributions in six major 
categories: Technical Articles, Extended Abstracts, Experience Reports, 
Workshops, Panel Sessions, and Tutorials. Contributions from students 
are actively solicited.

      * TECHNICAL ARTICLES present significant results in research,
        practice, or education. These papers will be double-blind refereed
        and published in the Conference Proceedings and in Ada Letters.
        Articles will also be considered for poster presentations.

        Please submit Technical Articles by 16 May 2007 to the Program
        Chair, Leemon C. Baird III (leemon.baird at usafa.af.mil).

      * EXTENDED ABSTRACTS discuss current work for which early submission
        of a full paper may be premature. If your abstract is accepted,
        you will be expected to produce a full paper, which will appear in
        the proceedings. Extended abstracts will be double-blind refereed.
        Clearly state the contribution of the work being described, its
        relationship with previous work by you and others (with
        bibliographic references), results to date, and future directions.

        Please submit Extended Abstracts by 16 May 2007 to the Program
        Chair, Leemon C. Baird III (leemon.baird at usafa.af.mil).

      * EXPERIENCE REPORTS present timely results on the application of Ada
        and related technologies to the design and implementation of
        applications such as the following: avionics, aerospace, automobile,
        command and control, consumer electronics, process control,
        transportation, trading systems, energy, medical systems,
        simulation, telecommunications, etc. Such reports will be selected
        on the basis of the interest of the experience presented to the
        community of Ada practitioners. You are invited to submit a 1-2 page
        description of the project and the key points of interest of project
        experiences. Descriptions will be published in the final program or
        proceedings, but a paper will not be required.

        Please submit Experience Reports by 16 May 2007 to the Program
        Chair, Leemon C. Baird III (leemon.baird at usafa.af.mil).

      * WORKSHOPS are focused work sessions, which provide a forum for
        knowledgeable professionals to explore issues, exchange views, and
        perhaps produce a report on a particular subject. A list of planned
        workshops and requirements for participation will be published in
        the SIGAda 2007 Advance Program. Workshop proposals will be
        evaluated by the Program Committee and selected based on their
        applicability to the conference and potential for attracting
        participants. Proposals should state the problem or issue to be
        addressed, the coordinator(s), and criteria for participant
        selection.

        Please submit Workshop proposals by 16 May 2007 to the Workshops
        Chair, Bill Thomas ([log in to unmask]).

      * PANEL SESSIONS gather a group of experts on a particular topic who
        present their views and then exchange views with each other and the
        audience. Panel proposals should be 1-2 pages in length, identifying
        the topic, coordinator, and potential panelists.

        Please submit Panel Session Proposals by 16 May 2007 to the Program
        Chair, Leemon C. Baird III (leemon.baird at usafa.af.mil).

      * TUTORIALS offer the flexibility to address a broad spectrum of
        topics relevant to Ada, and those enabling technologies which make
        the engineering of Ada applications more effective. Submissions
        will be evaluated based on relevance, suitability for presentation
        in tutorial format, presenter's expertise, and past performance.
        Tutorial proposals should include the expected level of experience
        of participants, an abstract or outline, the qualifications of the
        instructor(s), and the length of the tutorial.

        Please submit Tutorial proposals by 16 May 2007 to the Tutorials
        Chair, David A. Cook (DCook at AEgisTG.Com).

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Final acceptance will be contingent on at least one co-author
    registering for and presenting the contribution at the Conference.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

      * OUTSTANDING STUDENT PAPER AWARD. An award will be given to the
        student author(s) of the paper selected by the program committee
        as the outstanding student contribution to the conference.

      * VENDORS. Please contact S. Ron Oliver (SROliver at CSC.CalPoly.Edu)
        for information about participation at SIGAda 2007.

Please submit any questions on the conference to the Conference Chair, 
Alok Srivastava (Alok.Srivastava at AUATAC.Com).

IMPORTANT VISA INFORMATION FOR NON-US SUBMITTERS
------------------------------------------------

General Visa Information
------------------------
The sites http://www.UnitedStatesVisas.gov and http://travel.state.gov have 
information about obtaining a visa for those traveling to the United States. 
Both sites have links to websites for U.S. embassies and consulates 
worldwide. The embassy and consulate websites have very helpful information 
about procedures, timelines, communities served, required documentation, 
and fees.

Letters from ACM
----------------
International registrants should be particularly aware and careful about 
visa requirements, and should plan travel well in advance. All visa 
inquiries must be handled by ACM Headquarters. Please send your request for 
a letter in support of a visa application to Ashley Cozzi (acozzi at acm.org), 
and include your name, mailing address, and fax number, as well as the name 
of the conference you are attending. (Authors of papers/posters should also 
include the title). Please note that ACM does not issue formal "letters 
of invitation" to any of its conferences.
