ACM Anti-Harassment Policy
All SIGAda members who have an ACM web account (which is free) can freely access all issues of Ada Letters back to 1981 in the ACM Digital Library. In some issues, to access SIGAda related articles such as the Chair's Letter (appearing in every issue), the Bylaws, and activities of the Working Groups, conferences, etc., you must scan the contents of Frontmatter and/or Backmatter. In the past, we've provided all issues freely to everyone except for the most recent year's issues (those were available to SIGAda members and to Digital Library subscribers).

Ada Letters is now published two times a year, with the exception of special issues. The submission deadlines for all material other than articles (which must be submitted much earlier) are as follows:
Deadline Issue April 1, 2017 June 2017 October 1, 2017 December 2017 April 1, 2018 June 2018 October 1, 2018 December 2018 April 1, 2019 June 2019 October 1, 2019 December 2019 April 1, 2020 June 2020 October 1, 2020 December 2020
Letters, announcements and book reviews sent directly to the Managing Editor by the deadline will normally appear in the issue corresponding to that deadline.
Proposed articles are to be submitted to the Technical Editor, preferably via e-mail. Any article will be considered for publication, provided that topic is of interest to the SIGAda membership. Previously published articles are welcome, provided permission is granted by the previous publisher or copyright holder.
Although Ada Letters is not a refereed publication, acceptance is subject to
the review and discretion of the Technical Editor. In order to appear in a
particular issue, articles must be submitted far enough in advance of the
deadline to allow for review/edit cycles. Backlogs may result in an article's
being delayed for two or more issues. Contact the Managing Editor for
information on the current publishing queue.
Submissions should be sent electronically in MS-Word (preferred), Postscript, or Adobe PDF format. All submissions must be formatted for US Letter paper (8.5" x11" ) with 1" margins with no numbers, headers or footers. Full justification of text is preferred, with a proportional font of no less than 10 points. Code insertions should be presented in a non-proportional font (e.g. Courier).
The title should be centered, followed by author information (also centered). The author's name, organization name and address, telephone number, and e-mail address should be given. For previously published articles, please give an introductory statement (in a distinctive font) or a footnote on the first page, identifying the previous publication.
Back issues of Ada Letters can be ordered at the price of $6.00 per issue for ACM or SIGAda members; and $9.00 per issue for non-ACM members. Information on availability, contact the ACM Order Department at 1-800-342-6626 or 410-528-4261. Checks and credit cards only are accepted and payment must be enclosed with the order. Specify volume and issue number as well as date of publication. Orders must be sent to ACM Order Department, P. O. Box 12114, Church Street Station, New York, NY 10257 or via FAX: 301528-8550.
