Sponsored by ACM SIGAda
ACM SIGAda’s annual conference is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious event dedicated to software development for safety, security, and high reliability systems with emphasis on Ada technology in the world. Our 29th annual conference, SIGAda 2011 will be held November 6-10, 2011, in Denver, Colorado. It is a marvelous place to hold a conference as it has pleasant weather in November facilitating technical discussions in a congenial environment. SIGAda 2011 will feature technical sessions, tutorials, workshops, and a vendor exhibition. SIGAda 2011 promises to draw our usual rich mix of Ada practitioners, researchers, vendors, academics, and Government representatives for the highest level forum of technical exchanges and business contacts.
A conference program featuring our tradition of refereed papers and “big name” invited speakers on nationally important topics, strong local support and registration fees competitive with any other technical conference are generating strong early interest in SIGAda 2011 and the promise of increased attendance at SIGAda 2011.
SIGAda conference attendees’ interests include software-engineering technologies such as high-integrity systems, distributed computing, real-time processing, and open systems and standards. Because of its reputation for safety and reliability, Ada is used in aerospace, biomedical, transportation, and embedded systems. Because many of today’s systems are developed in multiple programming languages and rely heavily on COTS software, our attendees are also interested in non-Ada libraries, tools, related applications technologies, and mixed-language solution support. Our typical attendee is a senior engineer who influences software purchasing decisions in a high maturity organization.
The annual SIGAda conference offers an excellent opportunity for companies to meet existing customers along with new prospects interested in the Ada language or any high reliability software development technology. Sponsorship of this conference allows you to gain name recognition for your company and products. The combined sponsorship and exhibiting benefit allows you to promote your company and products to a pre-qualified set of attendees interested in Ada and associated high reliability technologies.
COST EFFECTIVE EXHIBITING: Of particular interest to potential exhibitors, SIGAda is continuing to make our Exhibit Hall an even more cost-effective experience for you. This year we will repeat last year’s exhibit space format. Our exhibit space rental provides a draped Table-Top booth with two chairs and electrical access. (No extra “decorating charges” are necessary.) Single Table Top booths are the only space option we offer. Like all recent SIGAda conferences, the exhibition will be one and a half days (Tuesday-Wednesday, November 8-9), which prove to be sufficient time for our attendees to visit all exhibitors and for you to make the contacts you need. And, every exhibiting company at the $2K Silver Sponsorship level or higher gets one free full-conference registration (two for $4K Platinum sponsors!) and a vendor presentation integrated into our technical sessions.
CORPORATE SPONSORSHIPS: SIGAda again invites companies to contribute to, and become a part of, SIGAda 2011 and SIGAda’s success by becoming SIGAda 2011 Corporate Sponsors, starting at the lowered fee of $2000 which used to be the basic exhibiting fee and which we hope will be the beginning choice of all of SIGAda’s supporters. Your sponsorship enhances the value of the event for attendees and presents you, our Corporate Sponsors, more visible opportunities to be recognized as industry leaders. Several tailorable levels of Corporate Sponsorship have been established, each providing benefits greater in value than making similar contributions under previous separately priced sponsorship arrangements. All Corporate Sponsors’ names and your logos will be prominently recognized in the SIGAda 2011 Final Program (FP), in online conference publicity, and on tote bags given to all attendees. Benefits and options at SIGAda 2011 for Corporate Sponsors are shown in the following table. Contact the Exhibits Chair for case-by-case tailoring discussions.
Badge Lanyards and other
Give-Aways are among additional opportunities at each sponsorship level,
