- SAC 2014

For the past twenty-eight 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 2014 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP),
and will be held at Gyeongju, Korea.

- Call For Student Research Abstracts:

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas
are invited to submit original abstracts of their research work in areas of experimental
computing and application development related to SAC 2014 Tracks. The Student Research
Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet
and exchange ideas with researcher and practitioners in their areas of interest.

- 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
*    Context-oriented programming
*    Databases and persistence
*    Distribution and concurrency
*    Dynamic and scripting languages
*    Evaluation
*    Feature Oriented Software Development and Programming
*    Formal verification
*    Integration with other paradigms
*    Interoperability, versioning and software evolution and adaptation
*    Language design and implementation
*    Modular and generic programming
*    Reflection, meta-programming
*    Secure and dependable software
*    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
(https://www.softconf.com/d/sac2014 for regular papers, and https://www.softconf.com/d/sac-src2014
for SRC papers.

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.
Full papers are limited to 6 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages at cost (US$80 per 
Posters are limited to 2 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page at cost (US$80).

Papers that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection. All papers must be submitted by
September 13, 2013. For more information please visit the SAC 2014 Website.

- Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings. Accepted posters will be
published as extended abstracts in the same proceedings.

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 
library. Student registration is only intended to encourage student attendance and does not cover 
of papers/posters in the conference proceedings.

Finally, following the tradition of the past OOPS editions, depending on the quality and the overall 
of accepted papers, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for a 
special issue, after the conference.
