Dear Members of the Ada Community:

On Wednesday, December 5, 2012, the 2012 SIGAda Awards will be presented 
in a special morning plenary session at the High Integrity Language 
Technology (HILT) 2012 conference in Boston, Massachusetts.  (See 
http://www.sigada.org/conf/hilt2012/  if you have somehow missed 
announcements of this year's annual SIGAda international conference.)

We welcome your nominations of deserving recipients.

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:

(1) Outstanding Ada Community Contribution Award
      -- For broad, lasting contributions to Ada technology & usage.

(2) ACM SIGAda Distinguished Service Award
      -- For exceptional contributions to SIGAda activities & products.

If there are individuals who you feel have made contributions that 
satisfy these criteria, please consider nominating them.  You may 
nominate a person for either or both awards, and as many people as you 
think worthy.

Please visit http://www.sigada.org/exec/awards/awards.html#Previous and 
peruse the names of past winners.  This may help you think about the 
measure of accomplishment that is appropriate.  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.

Please note that anyone who has received either of the two awards 
remains eligible for the other.  Perhaps there is an outstanding SIGAda 
volunteer who has won our Distinguished Service Award and who has also 
made important contributions to the advance of Ada technology, or visa 
versa.  Nominate him or her!

The nomination form is available on the SIGAda website at 
http://www.sigada.org/exec/awards/awards.html#Form.

Submit your nomination as an e-mail or e-mail attachment to 
[log in to unmask]  From your nominations, the recipients of the 
awards are determined by a poll of previous award winners.

Call our attention to the people who are most deserving, by nominating 
them.  And please nominate by Sunday November 4th!

Your participation in the nominations process will help maintain the 
prestige and honor of these awards.

Thank you,

John McCormick
Chair ACM SIGAda Awards Committee
