Dear SIGAda Members,
The ACM SIGAda Awards recognize individuals and organizations that have made
outstanding contributions to the Ada community and to SIGAda. The two
categories of awards are:
Outstanding Ada Community Contribution Award
-- For broad, lasting contributions to Ada technology & usage.
ACM SIGAda Distinguished Service Award
-- For exceptional contributions to SIGAda activities & products.
Your support will maintain the prestige and honor of these awards.
Please consider who should be nominated this year. You may nominate a
person for either or both awards, and as many people as you think worthy.
You can a see a list of past recipients on our Web page,
www.acm.org/sigada/awards. These may help you think about the measure of
accomplishment that is appropriate. People who have received either of the
two awards remain eligible for the other. You may be aware of people who
have made substantial contributions that have not yet been acknowledged.
Nominate them. Consider what you believe to be the best developments in the
Ada community or SIGAda in the last year; the last 5 years; since Ada's
inception. Who was responsible? Nominate them.
The ACM SIGAda Awards Committee, volunteers who have previously won an
award, will determine this year's recipients from your nominations.
Call our attention to the people who are most deserving, by nominating them.
And please nominate by 30 September!
Edward Colbert Hal Hart
ACM SIGAda Awards Committee
