To Team Ada:

We have developed a special tutorial to help you become more effective
in using the WWW and ACM Resources to support SIGAda Working Groups,
SIGAda Local Chapters, SIGAda Conferences and any volunteer activity
that will be promoting Ada.

               Effective Dissemination of Information

Cost:          This Tutorial is provided FREE

Prerequisites: No knowledge of HTML is assumed
               Knowledge of Netscape/IE/generic browser is assumed

Presenters:    Brad Balfour, Clyde Roby, and John McCormick

When:          Sunday, 17 October from 7:30 P.M. to 10:00 P.M.

Tutorial Description:

This tutorial is oriented towards providing the basic information to
disseminate information effectively using the World Wide Web.  The
tutorial addresses effective designs for web pages, the use of HTML for
developing web pages, incorporation of graphics, and using FTP and other
automated tools (both UNIX and PC-based) to streamline the dissemination
process.  Strategies for announcements, configuration management,
mailing lists, and databases are addressed.  The ACM host machine will
be used as a model.  Although this tutorial is specifically designed to
support the needs of SIGAda Working Groups and SIGAda Chapters, the
information will be useful to all interested in learning how to set up a
WWW home page.

This tutorial was set up especially to help you become more effective in
your volunteer activities with SIGAda and the Ada community. We
encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity.

We look forward to seeing you in Redondo Beach!
