DC/Baltimore SIGAda Program for 2005/2006

Schedule

This year, the DC/Baltimore SIGAda Chapter is planning to meet on the 2nd Tuesday from September through May. There are some exceptions to take advantage of significant events and to avoid major holidays and important Ada conferences. There is no December meeting as this conflicts with the busy holiday season. There is no February meeting, as this conflicts with Valentine's Day. There is no November meeting as this would conflict with the SIGAda 2005 Conference from 13-17 November 2005 in Atlanta, Georgia. You are all encouraged to attend this conference instead. The URL is below. The DC/Baltimore SIGAda venue typically alternates between Johns Hopkins University/Applied Physics Laboratory JHU/APL in Laurel, Maryland and MITRE2 in McLean, Virginia.

We are starting to plan an exciting program for 2005-2006. More details will be provided as they become available:
