As we approach the next millennium, our SIGAda 2000 Conference will be a special technology update on Ada and the related technologies enabling Ada to be successful where reliable software matters.  Ada has been a key development language in hard real-time/distributed systems for defense, space, aeronautics, ground transportation, air transportation, industrial process control, sensor processing, communications, and scientific research. 

In addition, a new wave of exciting and promising Ada developments has appeared in the last few years.  The purpose of this conference is to cover and explain such developments.
