Teamers,

Here is another opportunity for Ada advocacy.

(Apologies to those of you who already received previous distributions
of the full CfP.)

If you know someone doing interesting Ada-related work, please urge
them to submit a paper or an extended abstract for Ada-Europe's annual
International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies, to be held
next year in Vienna, Austria.

The deadline for submission of papers, extended abstracts and proposals
for tutorials and workshops is October 31.  Also note that exhibition
space is allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Thanks for your help in promoting this event and the use of Ada around
the world.
