General Assembly

Ada-Belgium will hold its 14th annual General Assembly on Tuesday, June 12, 2007, at the U.L.B., Department of Computer Science, Boulevard du Triomphe / Triomflaan, B-1050 Brussels, at 18:45. The official convocation is available, also in PDF format, and is sent via postal mail to all members.

There will be refreshments and pizza for Ada-Belgium members at 18:00. Please notify us if you are a current or new member and intend to participate at this informal "pre-meeting".

Technical Presentation

At 19:45 the General Assembly will be followed by a technical presentation on "Ada at Barco Avionics: history, coding standards, and products", by Ludovic Brenta from Barco Avionics, Belgium. A separate event announcement with more detailed information is available, also in PDF format.



Everyone interested is welcome at either or both parts of this meeting. As usual, the event is free and presentations are in English.

If you plan to attend the General Assembly or the technical presentation, we would appreciate it if you could inform us by e-mail (please also specify if you will be at the informal "pre-meeting"). Although no formal registration is required, this helps our preparations.

All Ada-Belgium members have a vote at the General Assembly, can add items to the agenda, and can be a candidate for a position on the Board (see the convocation for more details).

If you are a member but have not renewed your affiliation yet, please do so by paying the appropriate fee before the General Assembly (you have also received a printed request via normal mail). If you are interested to become a new member, please register ASAP by filling out the 2007 membership application form and by paying the appropriate fee before the General Assembly.
After payment you will receive a receipt from our treasurer and you are considered a member of the organization for the year 2007 with all member benefits. Early renewal ensures you receive the full Ada-Belgium membership benefits (including the Ada-Europe indirect membership benefits package).

As mentioned at earlier occasions, we have a limited stock of documentation sets and Ada related CD-ROMs that were distributed freely at previous events. Most important are back issues of the Ada User Journal and copies of the "Ada and Software Engineering" double CD-ROM (ASE2). The latter was handed out at the Ada-Europe'2001 conference in Leuven and is also on-line in the Ada-Belgium archive at URL These sets will be available on a first-come first-serve basis at the General Assembly for current and new members.
Please inform me via e-mail if you are interested in receiving the free documentation sets and/or CD-ROMs, so I can bring enough copies with me.


This event takes place at the premises of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (U.L.B.), Boulevard du Triomphe / Triomflaan, Campus de la Plaine, 1050 Brussels, Belgium. Exact location is building NO, 5th floor, Solvay room.

An access plan to the Campus de la Plaine of the U.L.B. is available. Parking facilities are at access no. 2 (parking Fraiteur) or no. 4 (parking UAE, the closest, usually has free space). You can check on-line how to reach the Campus de la Plaine by car or by public transport.

Looking forward to meet many of you in Brussels!
