Conference Reception

Lord Lytton, descendant of Ada Lovelace, has accepted an invitation to attend the Conference Reception, which will take place on Monday 2 June in the Tower Suite.

"The Maiden and The Mandate"

This operetta, first performed at Tri-Ada in 1996, has its European première on the evening of Monday 2 June. A professional orchestra and group of singers will entertain delegates with a musical extravaganza.

The performance is supported by Ada Core Technologies.

Tour of Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge, constructed in 1886, is one of London's landmarks. The Walkways, 43 metres above the river, provide breathtaking views of the City. The exhibition illustrates the Bridge's construction, with presentations including the simulation of a bascule bridge, and also provides an opportunity to visit the Engine Rooms. This tour will take place on Tuesday evening, following the General Assembly.

Conference Dinner

The Conference Dinner will take place aboard "The Elizabethan", one of the largest river cruisers on the Thames, on Wednesday 4 June. Delegates will embark from St Katharine Pier, immediately outside the Tower Hotel. Dinner will be served as the boat cruises to Greenwich, where the Old Royal Observatory houses the Greenwich Meridian, then turns and sails westwards to Putney, before returning to disembark at St Katharine Pier. Delegates will be able to enjoy London's skyline from the deck as well as from the dining cabin and the upper bar area.

The evening includes: return cruise on "The Elizabethan"; welcome reception; four-course dinner with wine; coffee. A cash bar will also be available on board.

Organised by Ada UK on behalf of Ada-Europe, in co-operation with ACM SIGAda.
