======================================================================     F I N A L C A L L F O R E X P E R I E N C E R E P O R T S     -----------------------------------------------------------------               ***** SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE JUNE 5 1998 *****                     SIGAda '98 (formerly Tri-Ada)                            Ada in Context               ACM SIGAda Annual International Conference                         OMNI SHOREHAM HOTEL                WASHINGTON, DC, USA, NOVEMBER 8-12, 1998                       SPONSORED BY ACM SIGADA,            IN COOPERATION WITH: SIGAPP, SIGBIO, SIGCAS, SIGCSE,        SIGPLAN, SIGSOFT, DC SIGADA, BALTIMORE SIGADA, and ADA-EUROPE.              _________________________________________________________________    The ACM Special Interest Group on Ada (SIGAda) is dedicated to the    technical, business and educational issues related to the Ada    programming language. SIGAda '98, the successor to the annual Tri-Ada    exposition, will be this year's largest Ada-focused conference and is    being organized to attract participants from all segments of the    software engineering community. The SIGAda '98 conference proceedings    will be published as an issue of Ada Letters.    This year we are hoping to increase significantly the participation    of educators and students in the conference, both as authors and    conference registrants.    Ada features a proven track record in large-scale system development    and full support for object orientation, and facilitates writing    portable source programs. Ada's support for sound software engineering    is bringing the language increased attention in computing education    and across a broad range of application areas in government and    industry. Ada's unique ability to interface with software written in    other languages makes it a viable candidate for developing systems in    a multi-language environment. Current Ada projects span a spectrum    that encompasses finance, the Internet, and the Java Virtual Machine,    complementing the language's traditional context of hard real-time,    embedded systems in defense, space, industrial process control,    medical applications, commercial aviation, and ground transportation.      _________________________________________________________________ The Conference Theme    We are soliciting conference contributions on the theme "Ada in    Context", pertinent to Ada or of general interest to the Ada community,    from authors inside and outside this community, in industry,    government, research, and education. Topics may include, but are not    limited to, Ada in the context of      * the Internet, the Web, and the National Information Infrastructure      * safety-critical and high-integrity applications      * multilanguage programming (e.g., Ada and Java or C++ in        collaboration)      * defense and non-defense applications      * object technology      * undergraduate, graduate, and secondary-school computing education      * pure and applied research      * software engineering practice      * the spectrum of programming languages and historical trends      * reengineering and maintenance of legacy systems      * making reuse real      * hybrid technology and COTS systems      * process improvement and the Capability Maturity Model      * software quality management      * the tension between better/cheaper/faster and reality      * the tradeoff between short-term gains and long-term quality   __________________________________________________________________________   EXPERIENCE REPORTS    Experience reports present timely results on the success or failure of    the application of Ada in real-world projects. Such reports will be    selected on the basis of the interest of the experience presented to    the community of Ada practitioners. You are invited to submit a 1-2    page description of the project and the key points of interest of    project experiences. Descriptions may be published in the final    program or proceedings, but a paper will not be required.      _________________________________________________________________ Conference Grants for Educators    As in past years, SIGAda is offering grants to educators to attend the    conference. Grants cover the registration and tutorial fees; travel    funds are not available. More details on the grant program are    available at      _________________________________________________________________   HOW TO SUBMIT    To facilitate electronic distribution to referees, kindly follow these    rules for submission. We prefer submission in the form of an ASCII or    PostScript file; other formats may be accepted, by prior arrangement    with the Program Chair.    Please deposit your contribution by anonymous ftp to, and send a confirming e-mail    message to the Program Chair,Prof. Michael B. Feldman, The George    Washington University [log in to unmask]    Please be sure to write "SIGAda 98 submission" on the subject line of    the message. Please indicate the title of the submission and the names    and affiliations of authors. Identify one author as a point of contact    and provide an e-mail address, postal address, phone number and fax    number for this author.
