    Thirty years of the Ada User Journal


    BREST, France (June 11, 2009) - On the occasion of Ada-Europe 2009, the
    14th annual Conference on Reliable Software Technologies, Ada-Europe,
    the international organization that promotes the knowledge and use of
    Ada in European academia, research and industry, inaugurated the
    celebrations of the 30th Anniversary of the Ada User Journal.

    Ada User Journal, the quarterly publication of Ada-Europe, keeps its
    readership abreast of developments in the standardization, use and
    promotion of the Ada programming language and technology, as well as
    issues related with reliable software technologies and engineering in
    Europe and the rest of the world. The Journal also currently maintains
    an on-line accessible archive of past editions since early 2002.

    The origins of the Ada User Journal date back to the birth of Ada UK
    News, which started publication in March 1980. As the first Editor,
    Prof. Ian Pyle, at the time Chair of Computer Science at the University
    of York, UK, put it in his inaugural Editorial, Ada has elicited
    interest in both the industrial and academic worlds. Perhaps for the
    first time we can find ourselves pulling in the same direction to the
    benefit of us all. This is an opportunity for bridging the
    industrial/academic gulf which we must not lose. And in fact this
    vision is still one of the cornerstones of the Journal Editorial

    The current name of the Journal first appeared in Volume 15 in the year
    1994, when it was still published by Ada UK. Ada-Europe published the
    Ada-Europe News since June 1989, until it was merged with the Ada User
    Journal in March 1998. From that time onward, Ada-Europe and Ada UK
    jointly published the Journal until Ada-Europe took over as the sole
    publisher from Volume 23 in 2002.

    To mark this anniversary celebration, the March 2009 issue of the Ada
    User Journal features a special article entitled Thirty years of the
    Ada User Journal, which recalls its three decades of history.
    Celebratory posters were also exhibited at the Ada-Europe 2009
    conference. A special issue of the Journal, to be released in March
    2010, will reprint a selection of the best articles published in the
    Journal over the past 30 years.
