The Ada-Europe yearly workplan could not be undertaken if there weren't sponsors that share Ada-Europe's aim to further the development, use and knowledge of Ada and reliable software technologies. The current list of sponsors appears below. We are sincerely grateful to them.
We have a permanent open call for sponsors who share the association's goals and interests. If you are willing to support Ada-Europe's mission (and you can start at a really affordable contribution level) please read the following letter from the President of Ada-Europe.
I am writing to you on behalf of Ada-Europe, the international organization that promotes the use, the maintenance and the evolution of the Ada language and technology.
As part of its charter, Ada-Europe organizes a high-quality yearly International Conference on Reliable Software Technologies (http://www.ada-europe.org/confs/ae), produces and distributes the Ada User Journal, a fine quarterly magazine (http://www.ada-europe.org/auj/home), and offers financial grants to initiatives that help further the resonance and relevance of Ada in engineering and scientific domains.
An important proportion of the Ada-Europe grant program supports the language maintenance process and, when the time comes, the production of the language Rationale and the Reference Manual books produced by Springer as part of their famous LNCS series.
The total volume of those financial undertakings is very significant for a not-for-profit organization such as us, which we can only sustain thanks to the generous support by our past, present and future sponsors.
This letter is a permanent open call for sponsors.
On behalf of Ada-Europe I would like you to consider becoming a sponsor. Our sponsorship program offers multiple ways in which you can flexibly design your sponsorship package, dependent on your business, your need for visibility, and your wish to selectively support specific initiatives, across the whole spectrum of Ada-Europe’s activities, from the yearly conference, to the Ada User Journal and our web presence, to the language books and the related language maintenance initiatives.
Visibility at the annual conference is attractive for organizations that want to present product offerings or industrial capacity. Our yearly conference attracts over 100 delegates from Europe, the USA, and occasionally from Australia, South America and Asia, with equally sized presence from industry and academia, and has a contact list of more than 1,500 professionals.
Also the Ada User Journal and the Ada-Europe web site are vehicles for visibility, not only for technology vendors, but also for organizations who want to show their support for Ada. We know the latter are numerous and we would be delighted to see them become active sponsors of Ada-Europe.
I really hope you will consider becoming a sponsor for some of the above initiatives of Ada-Europe. Sponsorship packages can be designed to suit both large and small organizations, and start with as little as 350 EUR.
In case you wanted to know more or have some specific interest – even if only provisional at this time – may I kindly invite you to make contact with the Treasurer of Ada-Europe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to an expression of interest from you, our Treasurer will contact you by phone and discuss with you your possible sponsorship profile.
I do hope you will find this proposal of some interest and I look forward to including your Company as a valued sponsor of Ada-Europe.
