                            Ada User Journal 
            The journal for the international Ada community

The Ada User Journal is produced by Ada-Europe.  It appears four
times a year, on the last days of March, June, September and December.

General Information

The Ada User Journal aims to inform readers of developments in the
Ada programming language and its use, general Ada-related software
engineering issues and Ada-related activities.  The Journal also
welcomes contributions on topics not strictly Ada-centric but related
with its scope.

The Journal publishes the following types of material (full list on
the website):

- Refereed original articles on technical matters concerning Ada and
  related topics.

- Invited papers on Ada and the Ada standardization process.

- Proceedings of workshops and panels on topics relevant to the

- Reprints of articles published elsewhere that deserve a wider

- News and announcements of interest to the Ada community.


The Ada User Journal provides coverage of significant work in a set of
(evolving) topics of interest, which include, but are not limited to:

- Real-Time, Embedded and Critical Applications: Use of Ada and
  reliable software in real-time embedded systems, distributed
  (possibly heterogeneous) systems, high-integrity and critical

- Reliable Software and Software Engineering at large: Case Studies and
  Experiments, Management of Software Development and Maintenance,
  Software Quality, Tools, Component-based Architectures.

- Enabling Technologies: Compilers and Support Tools, Run-Time Systems

- Ada Language Status and Evolution: A watchful eye on the Ada language
  revision process, with attention to user needs and vendor visions
  that may prompt amendments and enhancements to the language.

- Ada Experience Reports: Field reports on the use of Ada in industrial
  projects.  Insight on management approaches, programming techniques,
  software engineering metrics, comparisons with past or parallel
  experiences with other languages.

- Education and Training: Issues, challenges and prospects on the use
  of Ada in Secondary or Higher Education.  What should be taught to
  students to make good, language-neutral software engineers.

Guide for authors

All material for publication should be sent electronically.  Authors
are invited to contact the Editor-in-Chief ([log in to unmask])
by electronic mail to determine the best format for submission.
The language of the journal is English.

The Journal refereeing process aims to be rapid.  Currently, accepted
papers are typically published 3-6 months after submission.  Items of
topical interest will normally appear in the next edition.  There is
no limitation on the length of papers, though a paper longer than
10,000 words would be regarded as exceptional.

Templates are available for preparing papers in the Ada User Journal
format, both for Microsoft Word and LaTeX.  Please contact the
Editor-in-Chief for details.

By submitting a manuscript, authors grant Ada-Europe an unlimited
license to publish (and, if appropriate republish) it, if and when the
article is accepted for publication.  Copyright remains with authors.
