Variability and Software Product Line Engineering (VSPLE)
track of the 34th ACM/SIGAPP Symposium On Applied Computing (SAC 2019)

Limassol, Cyprus
April 8-12, 2019

Sponsored by ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP)


Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) provides methods to promote 
systematic software reuse for developing a family of software products, 
rather than individual ones. It allows companies to produce a set of 
related products at lower costs, in a shorter time and with higher quality.
The goal of the track VSPLE is to bring together researchers, industry 
R&D, engineers, practitioners and educators interested by all aspects 
related to software product line (SPL) and variability. The VSPLE track 
aims to be a forum to present and discuss recent ideas, trends, 
experiences, and challenges in this area.

For the past thirty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has 
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer 
engineers, software  engineers, and application developers from around 
the world.  SAC 2019 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on 
Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and will be held in Limassol, Cyprus.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers addressing any 
of the listed topics of interest (or related topics).
Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind 
review process by at least three referees.

Accepted papers will be included in the ACM SAC 2019 proceedings and 
published in the ACM digital library, being indexed by Thomson ISI Web 
of Knowledge and Scopus.

Paper size is limited to 8 pages. A maximum of 2 additional pages may be 
included for an additional fee. The reviews will be blind: authors’ 
names and affiliations must not appear in the paper and self-citations 
should be in the third person. Submitted papers must be formatted using 
the ACM SIG format (see the information in the bottom of this page).

Please submit your contribution via SAC 2019 submission site : 
Choose : Variability and Software Product Line Engineering (VSPLE) track

Submission guidelines can be found on the SAC 2019 website 

Paper registration is required allowing the inclusion of the paper in 
the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC must 
present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper to be included in 
the ACM digital library.

Student Research Abstracts Competition
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts following the 
instructions published at SAC 2019 SRC website 
(https://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2019/src_program.html) through the START 
SRC Submission System at: 

SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program
The SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) was established to 
provide financial support for SIGAPP student members to attend SIGAPP 
primary conference (SAC) to present their accepted work. Student primary 
authors and co-authors are eligible to apply for these awards. 
Applications are evaluated on a competitive basis. The application 
deadline is December 20, 2018 and notifications will be sent out by 
January 20, 2019. For more details about the eligibility and how to 
apply, refer to SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) page at:
