ACM Symposium on Applied Computing'03: Call for Track Proposals - dates modified

Conferences in and about Greece Directory - Previous Article - Next Article

From: "HR-Net News Distribution Manager" <>

Originally From: George Angelos Papadopoulos <>


Melbourne, Florida, USA, 9-12 March, 2003

*** Call for Track Proposals ***

*** Deadline Extended to 25th of April ***

For the past seventeen years the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers and application developers to gather, interact and present their work. The ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP)is the sole sponsor of SAC. The conference proceedings are published by ACM and are also available on the web through ACM's Digital Library.

SAC is based on a flexible structure of mostly self-contained and self-managed tracks. Over the past years it has hosted tracks on a variety of topics such as Artificial Intelligence, BioInformatics, Computers in Education, Parallel and Distributed Systems, Internet Technologies, Software Engineering, etc. SAC'02, which was held in Madrid, Spain, consisted of 21 tracks which hosted 194 accepted papers out of 457 submissions.

The 18th Annual SAC (SAC'03) will be hosted by the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, USA between 9-12 of March 2003. The conference Organizing Committee solicits proposals for hosting tracks. Perspective track chairs should submit an up to two pages description for organizing a track, which should include the following items:

1) The proposed title for the track with a description of its aims, topics it will cover and rationale for having such a track in SAC. This rationale should refer to any related conference events that are held regularly and why the proposed track differs from them or complements them. The proposed track should not be over general but also not overly specialized, thus being able to attract a wide audience of people sharing similar interests. Proposals from industry are also welcomed. Despite its name, SAC also welcomes topics of mostly theoretical nature, provided there is clear practical potential in applying the results of such work.

2) A short description of the activities the track chair will undertake upon acceptance of the proposal, to disseminate the call-for-papers for his/her track, manage the review process and collect final materials from authors of accepted papers. (Specific guidelines to track chairs regarding these issues will also be provided.)

3) A short CV of the perspective track chair(s) with reference to research interests and publication record directly related to the themes of the proposed track, and any previous experience of involvement in the organization of similar events (in the interest of brevity, reference to a personal web page where such information can be found will be sufficient).

All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference and Program Chairs with respect to the above criteria. The Chairs reserve the right to: (1) accept a proposal as is, (2) recommend merging of similar proposals with a considerable overlap in the topics addressed (in this case the track chairs of the different proposals will be asked to form a single chair), (3) reject a proposal.

Upon acceptance of a proposal, the track chairs will be notified of their responsibilities in managing the affairs of their tracks, as such responsibilities are defined by both ACM and SAC Organizing Committee. The Chairs reserve the right to cancel at any time a track, if these responsibilities are not addressed adequately by respective track chair(s).

Please submit your proposal electronically and in any acceptable readable form to:

George A. Papadopoulos
Department of Computer Science
University of Cyprus
Tel: +357 22 892242
Fax: +357 22 339062
