ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has gathered scientists
from different areas of computing over the past twenty-seven
years. The forum represents an opportunity to interact with different
communities sharing an interest in applied computing.

SAC 2013 is sponsored by SIGAPP and will be held at the Institute of
Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra, Coimbra,

Software Verification and Testing Track
We invite authors to submit new results in formal verification and
testing, as well as development of technologies to improve the
usability of formal methods in software engineering. Also welcome are
detailed descriptions of applications of mechanical verification to
large scale software. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- tools and techniques for verification of large scale software systems
- real world applications and case studies applying software verification
- static and run-time analysis
- abstract interpretation
- model checking
- theorem proving
- refinement and correct by construction development
- model-based testing
- verification-based testing
- run-time verification
- symbolic execution and partial evaluation
- analysis methods for dependable systems
- software certification and proof carrying code

Submissions guidelines
Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. Submissions
should be in electronic format, via the START site:
https://www.softconf.com/c/sac2013/. Author(s) name(s) and address(es)
must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be
avoided and made in the third person. Submitted paper will undergo a
blind review process. Authors of accepted papers should submit an
editorial revision of their papers that fits within six two-column
pages (an extra two pages, to a total of eight pages, may be available
at a charge). Please comply to this page limitation already at
submission time. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC
2013 proceedings.

For accepted papers, registration for the conference is required and
allows accepted papers to be printed in the conference
proceedings. The accepted paper MUST be presented by an author or a
proxy. This is a requirement for the paper to be part of the ACM/IEEE
digital library.

A special issue of Science of Computer Programming (SCP) has been
confirmed. Selected papers will be invited for submission, and will be
peer-reviewed according to the standard policy of SCP.

(New for SAC 2013) Student Research Competition (SRC) Program:
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (minimum of
2-page and maximum of 4-page) following the instructions published at
SAC 2013 website. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks
is not allowed. All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by
researchers and practitioners with expertise in the track focus area
to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have
the opportunity to give poster presentations of their work and compete
for three top-winning places. The SRC committee will evaluate and
select First-, Second-, and Third- place winners. The winners will
receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the
conference banquet. Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to
apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for support.
