The International Journal of Automated Reasoning and Artificial
Intelligence in Software Engineering

Associate Editor: Bashar Nuseibeh, Imperial College, UK

Automated Software Engineering is an archival peer-reviewed journal
publishing research, tutorial papers, surveys and accounts of significant
industrial experience in the application of automated reasoning, knowledge
representation and artificial intelligence techniques in software
engineering. This includes the study of techniques for constructing,
understanding, adapting, and modelling software artifacts and processes.
Both automatic systems and collaborative systems are within the scope of
the Journal, as are computational models of human software engineering
activities. Representations and formal techniques that support or provide
foundations for the automation of software engineering are covered.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the application of
automated reasoning, knowledge representation and artificial intelligence
techniques to: specification and design representation schemes, both
and informal; descriptions and models of the development process; tools
environments to support software development; cognition in software
development, including studies of specifiers, designers and implementors,
and cognitive properties of representation schemes, programming and
programming languages; software development methods; analysis and
validation; requirements elicitation, acquisition and formalization;
rationale; software quality and metrics; software reuse and adaptation;
animation and execution of specifications and designs; domain modelling
analysis; software visualization; software object management; development
of user interfaces; group and team work in software engineering;
development of distributed, real-time, embedded and composite systems;
systems integration; software evolution and maintenance; system testing;
reverse engineering and program understanding; documentation and program

Automated Software Engineering is published quarterly by Kluwer Academic
Publishers, with worldwide distribution to individuals, industry and
institutions. It includes reviews of books, software, conferences, and

Automated Software Engineering covers an area of active work and interest
which is not well covered by other journals. The Journal seeks to
a reputation of the highest quality and aims to provide rapid, informative
and expert review of submissions. Automated Software Engineering supports
electronic submissions of accepted papers. It does not set arbitrary
restrictions on length or on style of presentation; rather, it seeks to
match presentation with content. The Journal will guide and support
during submission. Papers describing novel and experimental work are
encouraged. Automated Software Engineering is also pleased to discuss with
organizers of relevant conferences, symposia and workshops the publication
of selected papers. The first issue is scheduled to appear in January
1994.Enquiries or submissions should be directed to Judith A. Kemp at
Kluwer or one of the Editors-in-Chief.
