Dear Team-Ada members,

What:      Twin-Cities SIGAda meeting
Date:       Tuesday, June 12, 2001
Time:       7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location:   Room 3-115, Electrical Engineering/Computer Science Bldg, 200
Union Street SE, University of Minnesota, 55455
Theme:      Reliability -- Techniques for Reliability
Topic:      Language Techniques for Reliable Software
Speaker:    Mark Glewwe


Today's computer programs are very large. We can no longer afford to
write unreliable software. Software must work reasonably in normal and
abnormal conditions; this is sometimes referred to as robustness. If
your software is reacting to real-world events, the software
should be prepared to handle:

     errors in data,
     unexpected behavior, and
     bad results.

In this meeting, Mark will discuss techniques to prepare software for
fault detection, isolation, recovery, and prevention.

About the Speaker:

Mark Glewwe has been writing real-time embedded software for more than
20 years. He is a graduate of UoM IT. He has worked at Sperry (aka
Lockheed Martin), Control Data (aka General Dynamics), and is currently
working for Goodrich Aerospace. Mark is the current publicity chair
for TCSIGAda and the SIGAda 2001 international conference.


Details, directions, and map:  see attachments or http://www.tcsigada.org

 The seminar is free and open toall; one would need to pay for parking
at the U (several dollars for the evening).
Please feel free to foward to your colleages as appropriate.

Twin Cities SIGAda presents: Mark Glewwe Language Techniques for Reliable Software 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 12, 2001 Room 3-115, Electrical Engineering/Computer Science Bldg 200 Union Street SE, University of Minnesota Minneapolis Campus This meeting is Co-hosted by the Computer Sciences Department at the University of Minnesota and TCSIGAda. We need programs to be reliable. We must design and code for faults. We can no longer afford to write unreliable software. Software must work reasonably in normal and abnormal conditions, this is sometimes referred to as robustness. If your software is reacting to real-world events, the software should be prepared to handle:   errors in data,   unexpected behavior, and   bad results. Mark will discuss:   techniques to improve reliability,   techniques not necessarily limited to Ada, and   examples in Ada to illustrate the techniques. Mark will show techniques to prepare software for:   Fault Detection,   Fault Isolation,   Fault Recovery, and   Fault Prevention.
