= from Xavier LANDES, Dominique CANEVET
=      we will have to port an application written in ADA 83 language
=      from SUN Os to Solaris environment.
=      ? do you know some programers who still have the experience of
=        porting ADA application from SUN Os to Solaris environment.
=        We would like to have contact with these programers

If you're interested to hear/read about experiences in porting a large
complex Ada 83 application to Ada 95 (including other upgrades at the
same time, such as HP-UX version, Oracle version, etc.), and many other
relevant papers, then you definitely should try to attend (part of) the
Ada-Europe'2001 conference next week in Leuven, Belgium.

FYI, I append the final (summary) call for papers here.
See for all details.

Especially relevant is the session on "System Evolution", Thursday

Hope this helps,
