SAC 2013 |
28th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
Special track on
Object Oriented Programming Languages and Systems
For the past twenty-seven 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 2013 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal, Institute of Systems and Robotics, University of Coimbra, Coimbra,
Portugal Mathematical and Computer Sciences Institute, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil, and will be held at the Institute of
Engineering of the Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra.

Student Research Competition (SRC, new to SAC): Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original un-published and in-progress research work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2013 Tracks. For further details see the call for student research abstract and the SRC information sheet.
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 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:
Prospective papers should be submitted in pdf format using the provided automated submission system.
All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works that are currently not under review in any conference or journal.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. The paper must not exceed 8 pages according to the above style; please note that this is the same page limit as for the final version. However, for camera-ready papers exceeding 6 pages each additional page will be charged 80 USD.
Papers that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection. All papers must be submitted by September 21, 2012. For more information please visit the SAC 2013 Website.
Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings. Accepted posters will be published as 2-3 pages extended abstracts in the same proceedings (the additional third page will be charged 80 USD).
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 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.
