Please put on your calendar the Last ACM DC SIGAda Chapter Meeting for this Spring scheduled for Thursday, 9 May 2002. Victor Giddings, of OIS, will be speaking on the use of Ada in Nuclear Fusion Research at the National Ignition Facility. This is not the coffee pot fusion variety in the news recently; it is the one where Ada on a CORBA backplane synchronizes 192 high powered lasers onto a target. The presentation will be held at the new MITRE2 Building in McLean, Virginia
