- SAC 2013

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 2013 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP),
and is hosted by Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal, Institute of
Systems and Robotics, University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal Mathematical and Computer
Sciences Institute, University of Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and will be held at the
Institute of Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra.

- Call For Student Research Abstracts (New to SAC):

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas
are invited to submit abstracts of their original un-published and in-progress research
work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to
SAC 2013 Tracks.

- OOPS Track

Object-oriented programming (OOP) has become the mainstream programming paradigm for
developing complex software systems in most application domains.

However, existing OO languages and platforms need to evolve to meet the continuous
demand for new abstractions, features, and tools able to reduce the time, effort, and
cost of creating object-oriented software systems, and improving their performance, quality
and usability.

To this aim, OOPS is seeking for research advances bringing benefits in all those typical
aspects of software development, such as modeling, prototyping, design, implementation,
concurrency and distribution, code generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation,
deployment, maintenance, reuse, and software evolution and adaptation.

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

*    Aspects and components
*    Code generation, and optimization, just-in-time compilation
*    Distribution and concurrency
*    Dynamic and scripting languages
*    Evaluation
*    Formal verification
*    Integration with databases, object persistence
*    Integration with other paradigms
*    Interoperability, versioning and software evolution and adaptation
*    Language design and implementation
*    Modular and generic programming
*    Reflection, meta-programming
*    Software product lines
*    Static analysis
*    Type systems and type inference
*    Virtual machines

OOPS offers a great opportunity to the OOP community to gain visibility, and to
exploit the inter-disciplinary nature of SAC.

- 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
September 21, 2012. For more information please visit the SAC 2013 Website.

- Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings. Accepted posters will 
be published as 2-3 pages extended abstracts in the same proceedings (the additional third
page 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 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, depending on the quality and the
overall number of accepted papers, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
version for a journal special issue, after the conference.
