- SAC 2016

For the past thirty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer
software engineers, and application developers from around the world.

SAC 2016 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP),
and will be hosted by the University of Pisa, and Scuola Superiore
Sant'Anna University, Italy.

- 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
computing and application development related to SAC 2016 Tracks. The
Student Research
Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide graduate students the
opportunity to meet
and exchange ideas with researcher and practitioners in their areas of

- OOPS Track

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
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,
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:

*    Aspects and components
*    Code generation, and optimization, just-in-time compilation
*    Context-oriented programming
*    Databases and persistence
*    Distribution and concurrency
*    Dynamic and scripting languages
*    Evaluation
*    Feature Oriented Software Development and Programming
*    Formal verification
*    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 2016 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.

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 at extra charge (80 USD per page).
Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page
at extra charge (80 USD).

Papers that fall short the above requirements are subjected to rejection.
All papers must be submitted by *September 11,  2015*.
For more information please visit the SAC 2016 home page (

- Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference
proceedings. Accepted posters will be
published as extended abstracts in the same proceedings.

Please note that full registration is required for papers and posters to be
included in the conference
proceedings and CD. An author or a proxy attending SAC *must* present the
paper. This is a requirement for
including the work in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered
papers, posters, and SRC abstracts
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, after the conference authors of selected
papers will be invited
to submit an extended version for a journal special issue.
