Table of Contents

These Proceedings are organized by the schedule of presentations from the Final Program. Most of the presentations are included here as Adobe's PDF files; exceptions are noted when they occur. File sizes are present if they exceed 1 MBytes. Speakers are indicated in bold.

All of the original Conference Papers are in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) file format. They are as close as possible to the papers that appear in the hardcopy SIGAda 2005 Conference Proceedings; they even contain the same page numbers where they appear in the Proceedings document. Note that there was a cancellation; the paper is still included here, however, and names and authors are indicated by red text.
