- SAC 2017
For the past thirty one 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 2017 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and
is hosted by the University of Quebec at Montreal, Canada; University Cadi Ayyad (UCA) of
Marrakech, Morocco; National School of Engineering in Rabat (EMI), Rabat, Morocco; and
National School of Applied Sciences (ENSA) of Kenitra, Morocco.
- 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 2017 Tracks. The Student Research
Competition (SRC) Program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet
and exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners in their areas of interest.
- OOPS Track: Aims and Topics
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
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, debugging,
evaluation, deployment, maintenance, reuse, and software evolution and adaptation.
The specific topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are not limited to, the
* 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
* Internet of Things technology and programming
* 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 2017 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.
SAC 2017 will use double-blind reviewing; to facilitate this, author name(s) and
institution(s) must be omitted, and references to authors' own related work should be in
the third person.
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 (max of 8 pages) at extra charge (80
USD per page). Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page
(max of 4 pages) at extra charge (80 USD). The length of the SRC abstracts is 2 pages with
no additional pages at extra charge.
Papers that fall short the above requirements are subjected to rejection. All papers must
be submitted by September 15, 2016. For more information please visit the SAC 2017 home
Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings. Accepted
posters will be published as extended abstracts in the same proceedings.
Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the
conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is
a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show
of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE 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.
