Dear Ada Community:

Just wanted to let you know that SIGAda 2001 in Minneapolis, Minnesota

is still intact. The cancellations are:

        Robert Dewar's Keynote Presentation

        Ben Brosgol & Brian Dobbings presentation on
                Real-Time Convergence of Ada and Java

        Zhenqiang Chen, Baowen Xi, and Huiming Yu's presentation on
                Detecting Concurrently Executing Pairs of Statements
                   using an Adapted MHP Algorithm

        Ben Brosgol's tutorial on
                Comparison of Concurrency in Java, C++, and Ada

ACT was seriously impacted by the events of 11 September and Robert
Dewar and Ben Brosgol will be unable to attend. Our prayers are with

John McCormick, the Program Chair, and Paul Stachour, the Conference
Chair are currently redesigning the schedule in order to best present
the program. We are currently looking at several alternative

speaker for Ben's tutorial.

If you haven't done so already, please register for the SIGAda 2001
conference as soon as possible. The on-line registration system is
located at the SIGAda 2001 Conference Web Site, at:

We are looking forward to an exciting conference. We can guarantee that
the conference will demonstrate the power of real-time programming along
with intriguing dynamic scheduling algorithms. We will try to send an
announcement to those registered by Wednesday to let you know how the
schedule looks by the end of this week. Changes may be posted to our web

Hope to see you next week!
