- SAC 2016
For the past thirty 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 2016 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP),
and will be hosted by the University of Pisa, and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna University, Italy.
- 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 2016 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
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,
* Aspects and components
* Code generation, and optimization, just-in-time compilation
* Context-oriented programming
* Databases and persistence
* Distribution and concurrency
* Dynamic and scripting languages
* 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
* Runtime verification
* Secure and dependable software
* Static analysis
* Testing and debugging
* 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 to the track in pdf format using the START submission system
for regular and SRC papers available through the SAC 2016 home page
Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed; 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.
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 extra charge (80
USD per page).
Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page at extra charge (80 USD).
Papers that fall short the above requirements are subjected to rejection.
All papers must be submitted by *September 11, 2015*.
For more information please visit the SAC 2016 home page (http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2016).
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. An author or a proxy attending SAC *must* present the paper. This is a
including the work in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers, posters, and SRC
will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library. Student registration is only
encourage student attendance and does not cover inclusion of papers/posters in the conference
Finally, following the tradition of the past OOPS editions, depending on the quality and the
overall number of accepted papers, after the conference authors of selected papers will be invited
to submit an extended version for a journal special issue.
