Learn from the world's top Ada technologists why Ada is the language
of choice worldwide for the most important safety-critical and
high-reliability systems.

The SIGAda 2000 Conference will be a special technology update
on Ada and the related technologies enabling Ada to be successful
where reliable software matters. Ada has been a key development
language in real-time and distributed systems for defense, space,
aeronautics, ground transportation, air transportation, industrial
process control, sensor processing, communications, and scientific
research. A new wave of exciting and promising Ada developments
has appeared in the last few years. The purpose of this conference
is to cover and explain such developments.

The conference will feature a series of invited presentations by
leading subject matter experts, in-depth tutorials covering a variety
of topics of interest to all software engineering practitioners,
an exhibition featuring the leading Ada vendors, and several focused
workshops.

Tutorials cover a broad range of topics of interest to all software
engineering practitioners, including
* An Introduction to Ada 95
* Software Architecture
* High Integrity Programming
* Real-Time Programming
* Design Patterns
* CORBA
* Java
* Software Development Tools
* Process Improvement
* Cleanroom Software Engineering
* Windows Programming

Workshops include:
* Cost-Effective Approaches to Satisfy Safety-Critical Regulatory
   Requirements
* Should Software Engineers be Licensed Engineers?
* Ada Semantic Interface Specification (ASIS)
* Software for Ham Radio Operators

Whether you are from industry, government, or academia, if you are
interested in where Ada is today and where it is going, this is a
conference that you need to attend.
