All, I received the following because I am on an OLD email list for this conference. I have not yet attended, but would love to some day. Rather doubt I'll make it to Hong Kong, but who knows? I was not sure how many of you would have received this, or would know about it from some other context. One of the things we often talk about is getting Ada-related papers into conferences that are not specifically Ada conferences. This one sounds to me like an ideal venue for much of the work you/we are doing. After all, "Reliability Engineering" is best done by choosing good tools (e.g. a language that supports reliability), etc. :) sro - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - >(We apologize if you received multiple copies of this.) > >******************************************************** >*** CALL FOR PAPERS *** >*** *** >*** 12th International Symposium *** >*** on *** >*** Software Reliability Engineering *** >*** (ISSRE 2001) *** >*** http://www.issre2001.org *** >*** *** >*** Nov. 28 - Dec. 1, Hong Kong *** >*** *** >******************************************************** > >The International Symposium on Software Reliability >Engineering is the leading symposium for dissemination >of state-of-the-art software reliability research and >engineering practice.
