    *** Announcement

    The next Ada-Belgium event will take place on Sunday, May 28, 2023
    in Leuven.

    After an interruption of 3 years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and
    for the 13th time, Ada-Belgium organizes their "Spring Event", which
    starts at noon, runs until 7pm, and includes an informal lunch, the
    30th General Assembly of the organization, and a round-table discussion
    on Ada-related topics the participants would like to bring up.

    *** Schedule

    * 12:00 welcome and getting started (please be there!)
    * 12:15 informal lunch
    * 15:00 Ada-Belgium General Assembly
    * 16:00 Ada round-table + informal discussions
    * 19:00 end

    *** Participation

    Everyone interested (members and non-members alike) is welcome at
    any or all parts of this event.

    For practical reasons registration is required. If you would like
    to attend, please send an email before Thursday, May 25, 18:00,
    to Dirk Craeynest <Dirk.Craeynest@cs.kuleuven.be> with the subject
    "Ada-Belgium Spring 2023 Event", so you can get precise directions
    to the place of the meeting. Even if you already responded to the
    preliminary announcement, please reconfirm your participation ASAP.

    If you are interested to join Ada-Belgium, please register by
    filling out the 2023 membership application form[1] 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 2023 with all member benefits[2]. Early enrollment 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 at
    previous events, as well as some back issues of the Ada User Journal[3].
    These will be available on a first-come first-serve basis at the
    General Assembly for current and new members. (Please indicate in
    the above-mentioned registration e-mail that you're interested,
    so we can bring enough copies.)

    Euros per person to the Treasurer of the organization.

    *** General Assembly

    *** Ada Round-Table Discussion

    As in recent years, we plan to keep the technical part of the Spring
    event informal as well. We will have a round-table discussion
    on Ada-related topics the participants would like to bring up.
    We invite everyone to briefly mention how they are using Ada in
    their work or non-work environment, and/or what kind of Ada-related
    activities they would like to embark on. We hope this might spark
    some concrete ideas for new activities and collaborations.

    *** Directions

    To permit this more interactive and social format, the event takes
    place at private premises in Leuven. As instructed above, please inform
    us by e-mail if you would like to attend, and we'll provide you precise directions to the place of the meeting. Obviously, the number of
    participants we can accommodate is not unlimited, so don't delay...

    Looking forward to meet many of you!

    President Ada-Belgium
