Dear Members of the Ada Community:
On Thursday, 10 November 2011, the 2011 SIGAda Awards will be presented
in a special morning plenary session at the SIGAda 2011 conference in
Denver, Colorado. (See http://www.sigada.org/conf/sigada2011/ if you
have somehow missed announcements of this year's annual SIGAda
We welcome your nominations of deserving recipients.
The ACM SIGAda Awards recognize individuals and organizations who have
made outstanding contributions to the Ada community and to SIGAda. The
two categories of awards are:
(1) Outstanding Ada Community Contribution Award
-- For broad, lasting contributions to Ada technology & usage.
(2) ACM SIGAda Distinguished Service Award
-- For exceptional contributions to SIGAda activities & products.
Please consider who should be nominated this year. You may nominate a
person for either or both awards, and as many people as you think
worthy. One or more awards will be made in both categories.
Please visit http://www.sigada.org/exec/awards/awards.html#Previous and
peruse the names of past winners. This may help you think about the
measure of accomplishment that is appropriate. You may be aware of
people who have made substantial contributions that have not yet been
acknowledged. Nominate them. Consider what you believe to be the best
developments in the Ada community or SIGAda in the last year; the last 5
years; since Ada's inception. Who was responsible? Nominate them.
Please note that anyone who has received either of the two awards
remains eligible for the other. Perhaps there is an outstanding SIGAda
volunteer who has won our Distinguished Service Award and who has also
made important contributions to the advance of Ada technology, or visa
versa. Nominate him or her!
The nomination form is available on the SIGAda website at
