Highlights of SIGAda'99

Abstract: Highlights of SIGAda'99

The SIGAda'99 Conference is the annual International Ada Conference, sponsored by ACM SIGAda. It occurred at Redondo Beach, California, from October 17 through 21, 1999. The Conference theme this year was "The Engineering of Industrial Strength Real-Time and Distributed Systems, Using Ada and Related Technologies".

The conference contained much relevant information on the software engineering of real-time and distributed systems useful to those building such systems. This presentation will compress a week's worth of knowledge into a valuable packet so you can take advantage of the technical work presented at the conference without your actually attended the conference.
