Call for Participation - SIGAda 2005
13-17 November 2005, Atlanta, Georgia, USA Sponsored by ACM SIGAda
(Approval pending by ACM)
Constructing highly reliable software is an engineering challenge that
can now be met in many domains. The SIGAda 2005 conference focuses on
how the application of software engineering methods, tools and languages
interrelate and on how features in Ada affect the quality of the
resulting software. Papers that analyze Ada with respect to these
factors or in comparison to other languages are especially welcome.
SIGAda 2005 gathers industry experts, educators, software engineers, and
researchers interested in developing, analyzing, and certifying
reliable, cost-effective software. Technical or theoretical papers as
well as experience reports with a focus on Ada are solicited. A brief
list of topics include safety and high integrity issues, real-time and
embedded applications, Ada & software engineering education, Ada in
other environments such as XML and .NET, Ada and other languages,
metrics, standards, analysis, testing, validation, and quality
assurance. For a more extensive list of topics visit the SIGAda 2005
Contributions are solicited in six categories: Technical articles,
extended abstracts, experience reports, workshops, panels, and
We openly welcome contributions from educators and students. Educator
grants are available that include conference and tutorial registration
fees. These fees will also be waived for student authors whose papers
are accepted for publication. An Outstanding Student Paper Award will
be given for the best student contribution to the conference. Technical
articles or experience reports from students could focus on such
projects as comparing applications implemented in other languages and
then re-implemented in Ada, mixed language development of applications,
how Ada is used with XML or .NET applications, and/or software
engineering education experiences with Ada.
The keynote speaker will be James Leonard, a Boeing Senior Technical
Fellow at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. His talk, "Faster Than a
Speeding Bullet", will explore the past and future of programming.
