                                          Call for Papers: Tri-Ada '97

                          St. Louis, Missouri, USA, November 9-13, 1997
                                                Sponsored by ACM SIGAda

The Tri-Ada conference is concerned with technical, business, and
educational issues related to the Ada programming language. Authors are
invited to submit papers on original research or relevant experience.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

      o economics of the software marketplace

      o empirical comparisons with other programming languages

      o use of Ada in multilingual environments (including the use of Ada
          for "glue code")

      o the use of Ada in software engineering, data structures, and
          introductory programming courses

      o experience with the transition from Ada 83 to Ada 95

      o experience building Ada applications, and lessons learned,
            - nonembedded applications, such as finance
            - Internet applications and applets
            - distributed objects that "plug and play" in desktop and network
            - safety-critical applications

      o novel programming paradigms

      o real-time design patterns

      o the use of Ada with particular software-engineering and
          project-management methods

      o object-oriented analysis, design and programming; object-oriented
          design patterns

      o experience with formal methods

      o Ada bindings to operating systems, subsystems, and applications

      o Ada application frameworks and component libraries

      o integrated development environments, application generators, and
          tool sets supporting Ada

      o Ada-95 compilation and run-time implementation techniques

      o implementation-defined enhancements to the standard predefined

All accepted papers will be presented at the conference and will appear
in the proceedings.


Please e-mail an extended abstract, as either a plain ASCII or
PostScript file, to the Program Chairman,

    Norman H. Cohen

by 5pm EST on Friday, May 2, 1997. The abstract should clearly state
the contribution of the work being described, its relationship with
previous work by you and others (with bibliographic references), results
to date, and future directions. Extended abstracts should not exceed
2500 words (equivalent to approximately 5 pages typeset 10-point on
16-point spacing). Excessively long abstracts will be rejected

Please indicate the title of the paper and the names and affiliations of
authors. Identify one author as a point of contact and provide an
