- SAC 2012

For the past twenty-seven years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers,
software engineers, and application developers from around the world.

SAC 2012 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP),
and is hosted by The Microsoft Research - University of Trento Centre for
Computational and Systems Biology, Trento, Italy.

- OOPS Track

The object-oriented (OO) paradigm is extensively used to design and implement
today's large scale software systems. However, existing OO languages and
platforms need to evolve to better support features like interoperability,
software reuse, dynamic software adaptation, efficiency on multicore hardware,
security, and safety.
The aim of OOPS is to foster the development of extensions to existing OO
languages and platforms, as well as the design and implementation of new
languages and platforms embracing and enhancing the object-oriented paradigm.
Particularly of interest for OOPS are papers that provide a thorough analysis
covering most of the following aspects: theory, design, implementation,
applicability, performance evaluation, and comparison/integration with existing
constructs and mechanisms.

The specific topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are not limited
to, the following:

    * Language design and implementation
    * Type systems, static analysis, formal methods
    * Integration with other paradigms
    * Aspects, components, and modularity
    * Reflection, meta-programming
    * Databases and persistence
    * Distributed, concurrent or parallel systems
    * Interoperability, versioning and software adaptation

Besides being an event expressly organized for researchers in OOP who seek
to bridge theory and practice, OOPS at SAC offers the opportunity for exploiting
cross-fertilization between the different branches of computer science, and
for keeping in touch with recent trends in computer science, since almost all
research areas are represented by 34 different tracks.

- Submission Instructions

Prospective papers should be submitted in pdf format using the provided
automated submission system.

All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works that are
currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both basic and applied
research papers are welcome.

Hardcopy and fax submissions will not be accepted. Submission of the same paper
to multiple tracks is not allowed.
The format of the paper must adhere to the sig-alternate style. The paper must
not exceed 8 pages according to the above style; please note that this is the
same page limit as for the final version.
However, for camera-ready papers exceeding **6 pages** each additional page will be
charged 80 USD.

Papers that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection. All papers
must be submitted by August 31, 2011. For more information please visit the SAC
2012 Website.

- Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings.
Accepted posters will be published as extended 3-page abstracts in the same
proceedings; the **third page** only will be charged 80 USD.

Please note that full registration is required for papers and posters to be
included in the conference proceedings and CD. Papers and posters NOT presented
at the conference will NOT be included in the ACM digital library. Student
registration is only intended to encourage student attendance and does not
cover inclusion of papers/posters in the conference proceedings.

Finally, following the tradition of the past OOPS editions, we are planning to
organize a journal special issue hosting the extended versions of the best
papers of the track.
