Tartan previewed its first Ada 9X compiler at the "Ada in Europe" Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark last week. The advanced development tool used in the demonstration was the current version of Tartan's SPARC to Motorola 68040 cross-compiler that will be on general release in November 1994.

13th ANNUAL NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON Ada TECHNOLOGY Ada ON THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY
The 13th Annual National Conference on Ada Technology will be held March 13-16, 1995, at the Sheraton Plaza in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. This year's conference theme is "Ada on the Information Superhighway". Talks, presentations, and discussion will explore ways in which Ada and software technology can help manage our information resources and make them accessible to the world.
The Annual National Conference on Ada Technology brings together talented people from the entire software engineering community -- government and industry, managers and practitioners, students and faculty. The conference includes tutorials on emerging technologies, exciting guest speakers and panels, and stimulating paper sessions. A collegial, interactive conference style encourages audience involvement and participation. Students are especially welcome and are encouraged to participate in special student sessions.
Paper abstracts (3-5 pages) are due October 14; panel and tutorial proposals are also welcome. Topics of particular interest include: managing information, guides to information resources, making information available, revamping today's applications, the impact of the information superhighway on education, and the future of the information superhighway.

ATTENTION Ada 95 VENDORS AND DEVELOPERS!
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Center for Standards would like to invite your participation in the finalization of an Ada 95 Mapping to the Object Management Group's Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) Interface Design Language (IDL).
MITRE and Objective Interface Systems (OIS) have developed a draft Ada 95 mapping document and are preparing implementations based on the mapping. The ACM SIGAda Bindings Working Group is preparing an Ada 83 mapping that will be compatible with the Ada 95 mapping. Once the mappings are completed, the Center for Standards will submit a Request for Comment to the OMG so that the mapping can be included with their publications.
In order for the RFC to be processed as quickly as possible, we must obtain support from all major vendors and developers before submission to the OMG.
