For the past twenty-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.
2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by Seoul National University
in Seoul and The Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do.
TRACK: AIMS AND TOPICS
Today's large scale software systems are typically
designed and implemented using the concepts of the object-oriented (OO)
However, there is still a need for existing OO languages and
architectures to continuously adapt in response to demands for new
features and innovative approaches.
These new features, to name a few, include unanticipated software
evolution, security, safety, distribution, and interoperability.
The basic aim of the OOPS track at the SAC 2007 is to promote and
stimulate further research on the object-oriented programming and
This track will foster the development of extensions and enhancements
to the prevalent OO languages, such as Java, C# and C++, the
formulation of innovative OO-based middleware approaches, and the
improvements to existing and well-established distributed-object based
Specifically, this track will invite papers investigating the
applicability of new ideas to widespread, and standard object-oriented
languages and distributed-object architectures.
A medium to long-term vision is also solicited, tackling general issues
about the current and future role of prevalent OO languages and
distributed architectures in Computer Science and Engineering.
Particularly of interest for this track are those papers that provide a
thorough analysis covering following aspects: theory, design,
implementation, applicability, performance evaluation, and
comparison/integration with existing constructs and mechanisms.
Original papers and implementation reports are invited from all areas
of OO programming languages and distributed-object computing.
The specific topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are not
limited to, the following:
> Programming abstractions
> Advanced type mechanisms and type safety
> Multi-paradigm features
> Language features in support of open systems
> Aspect-oriented and component-based programming
> Reflection, meta-programming
> Program structuring, modularity, generative
> Compositional languages
> Distributed objects and concurrency
> Heterogeneity and interoperability
> Applications of distributed object computing

Accepted full papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference
proceedings, with the option (at additional expense) to add 3 more
pages. Accepted poster papers will be published as extended 2-page
abstracts in the same proceedings.
Please note that full registration is required for paper

registration does not cover paper and poster
inclusion in the conference proceedings, but it is only intended to
encourage student attendance.
Finally, as it is customary, after the conference the
