1. ACM SIGAda early registration deadline approaching

2. SIGAda 2005 Early Registration Deadline Approaching

SIGAda 2005 is being held in Atlanta November 13-17, 2005. The
deadline for early tutorial and conference rates is October 17th.
While we can no longer guarantee conference rates at our venue, the
DoubleTree Hotel, Atlanta-Buckhead, the last time I checked they still
had rooms remaining at the conference rate.

Thursday, November 17th is dedicated to Ada 2005. This is a perfect
opportunity to hear about Ada 2005 from members of the ISO/IEA Working
Group responsible for the development and standardization of Ada. On
top of that, there will be many opportunities to network with Ada
experts in industry and government, giving you unique insights into
technologies beyond those currently released.

You can find descriptions of the tutorials, see the technical program,
and register for the conference at our web site:

If you need a few days beyond the early rate cutoff date, contact our
Registration Chair (contract information on the web site) and request
an extension.

I hope to see you in Atlanta.

SIGAda 2005 Conference Chair
