 TRI-Ada '93 Advance Program Corrections

This mesage contains only the updates to the previously published TRI-Ada '93 Advance Program.

Changes to the electronic TRI-Ada '93 Advance Program

1. The correct speakers for the "Ada and Software Engineering in
Academia" panel are Mike Feldman, Jaime Nino, and Charles McKay.

2. The correct title of the Tuesday 8:30 Panel is "ASIS: Tools with the
View or Exposing Ada."

3. The correct descriptions for Judy Bamberger's tutorials are:

Process Management and the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) for Software

This hands-on, interactive tutorial introduces the process management
concepts on which the CMM is based, discusses the benefits of process
management, presents the five-level maturity model.  The concepts behind
key portions of the Repeatable and Defined Levels are used in the
several exercises throughout this tutorial

Components of an Effective Process Improvement Program

Process improvement is messy; it takes time; it takes patience; it takes
creativity and perseverance.  And guess what - there is no one right
way!  This tutorial introduces several skills and concepts that have
proven  effective, and provides time for individuals and teams to
discuss and  practice them.  A short section on action planning will be
included, so feel free to bring your own organization's issues with you.

4. Way Ting's new title is Vice President, Visual Magic Division,
Silicon Graphics, Inc.

5. The conference Registration Form is included later in this message.

6. There is an opportunity for qualified full-time educators to receive
grants to attend the tutorials.  Information on this program is included
after the registration form.

7. The proper acronym for the Standards for Ada Software Working Group
is SDSAWG.  Lewis Gray is a panelist and the chair of the SDAWWG
panel.  Perry DeWeese's proper title is CODSIA Case. {The four major
stakeholders in Mil-Std SDD are (1) government organizations that
commissioned the new standard, (2) the industry contractor that will
develop the new standard, (3) industry trade associations and their
members, and (4) Ada software developers and their managers.  Lewis
Gray is the Chair of the SIGAda SDSWG.

                 TRI-Ada 93 Conference Grants for Educators
                 sponsored by ACM SIGAda Education Committee

Program Goals:

  The Conference Grants program is intended to help educators introduce,
strengthen, and expand the use of Ada in secondary school, college and
university curricula. We welcome a proposal from anyone who feels that
his or her goals meet this description. The 1993 program will award
approximately 10 of these grants.

Grant Benefits:

(1) Full registration for the technical sessions at TRI-Ada '93, in
Seattle, Washington, Sept. 18-23. (includes a copy of the conference

(2) Registration costs for 2 days of tutorials or workshops at TRI-Ada
'93, September 18-19 (Saturday and Sunday). A copy of the course titles
to be presented at TRI-Ada is included in this packet. You may choose to
attend any course(s) that will help you achieve your goals.

How to Propose:

In order to be considered for a grant, you must prepare a formal
proposal and send it, by regular mail or e-mail postmarked by August 27,
1993, to both

Michael B. Feldman                        Richard E. Pattis
Department of Electrical Engineering      Department of Computer Science
  and Computer Science                      and Engineering
The George Washington University          University of Washington
Washington, DC 20052                      Seattle, WA  98195
(202) 994-5253                            (206) 685-1218

The proposal should contain three specific items:

(1) Cover Letter:  A cover sheet with your name, address, phone number,
and e-mail address (if available). It should be stated that you would  
not be able to attend the conference without the support of this grant.

    It would be useful to obtain a statement from the appropriate
    department chair or dean, to the effect that he/she has read and
    supports the your statements, including assurance that the necessary
    travel funds will be made available to you if the grant is awarded.

(2) Proposer's Statement (3 pages maximum): A statement of the
proposer's background, environment, and plans.

    -- Environment : The current curriculum in your institution.

    -- Plans       : What you plan to do with Ada in the curriculum
                     and how these plans relate to the current
                     in his or her school.

    -- Background  : The relevant experience that you bring to the

(3) Course Selection: State which TRI-Ada tutorial(s) or workshop(s) you  
would like to attend, and if it is not obvious, the relevance of these
courses to the plans above.

Evaluating Proposals:

All proposals will be evaluated by educators who teach and use Ada in
their curricula. Proposals will be evaluated on:

     -- the quality and appropriateness of the plans

     -- the appropriateness of the TRI-Ada courses to the plans

     -- the preparation of the proposer to do the development

Awards will be announced by Sep 10, 1993. Grantees will be asked to
accept the grant formally and to verify their attendance at that time,
and arrangements will be made for registration following their
acceptance.  All proposers will be notified of the decision on their
proposal, but detailed evaluation information will not be available.
