INTRODUCTION TO ADA [Full-1]
Dean Gonzalez, Independent Educator
Introduction  to  the  key  features  of  Ada  and  how  they can aid in the
development of quality software.  Discussion of Ada  features  that  can  be
exploited   for  implementation  validation,  object-oriented  methods,  and
software components.

For: Software professionals,  at  technical  or  management  level,  with  a
background in any high-level programming language.
____________________

ADA:  PLUGGING IN THE POWER TOOL [Full-2]
Philippe Kruchten, Rational
Discussion  of  the largely under-used features of Ada and how their use can
be promoted by extended training and  the  development  of  Ada  design  and
coding standards.

For:    Technical managers, Ada educators, and software engineers who have a
general knowledge of Ada.
____________________

DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF LARGE ADA REAL TIME SYSTEMS USING HOOD [Full-3]
Maurice Heitz, CISI Ingenierie
Overview of the Hierarchical Object Oriented Design (HOOD) method and how it
is  used  for  the  development  of  real-time  and distributed Ada systems.
Presentation  of  experiments  on  how  the  method  can  be   extended   by
incorporating formalisms and annotations.

For:  Software engineers, educators, as well as project managers of in large
Ada developments.
____________________

THE USE  OF  ANNA  SPECIFICATION  TECHNOLOGY  IN  ADA  SOFTWARE  DEVELOPMENT
[Full-4]
Sriram  Sankar  and  David Luckham, Stanford University Program Analysis and
Verification Group
Comprehensive overview of ANNA (Annotations for Ada),  a  language  allowing
formal  assertions  in  Ada  programs.    Description  of  the  toolset  and
application techniques for use during all phases of the software development
lifecycle.

For:   Those with reasonable experience using Ada, though attendees need not
be formal methods experts.
____________________

TAILORING AN ADA RUN-TIME SYSTEM [Half-5a]
Keith Hines, Motorola, Inc
Presentation of all information necessary to tailor an Ada  run-time  system
to  a  custom  hardware  architecture  and  insights into multiple tailoring
methods.

For: Anyone with a working knowledge of Ada who needs to know more about Ada
run-time systems.
____________________

ADA REAL-TIME DESIGN CASE STUDY [Half-5b]
Mark Borger, Marilyn Keller, TeleSoft
Case  study  to  develop  attendees' ability to make informed decisions when
addressing real-time Ada application requirements.  Investigation of various
real-time  Ada  design  and  implementation  tradeoffs  by  comparing an Ada
tasking solution to a second Ada solution that is based on  using  real-time
executive primitives.

For:    Real-time  application designers and developers with Ada experience,
and technical managers of Ada real-time projects.
____________________

ADA/X PROGRAMMING INTERFACE [Full-6]
Robert Smith, Jr. Timothy Schreyer, Unisys
Overview of the X Window system  client/server  architecture  including  the
layered  components  of X. Discussion of the X server and protocol, the Xlib
interface, toolkit intrinsics, and widget sets.

For:  Anyone with reasonable Ada experience; no prior experience with the  X
Window System in C or Ada required.
____________________

MEASURING AND IMPROVING SOFTWARE PROCESS MATURITY [Full-7]
Judah Mogilensky, Contel Federal Systems
Presentation  of  the  Software  Engineering Institute's Software Capability
Maturity Model and its use in software process assessments and  evaluations.
Discussion  of the five maturity levels, differences between assessments and
evaluations,  and  of  the  factors  critical  to  making  software  process
improvement happen in organizations.

For:  Those  wanting  to  improve  the  software  process  maturity in their
organizations.
____________________

TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN A SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT [Half-8a]
Robert Schaller, Martin Marietta Information Systems Group
