Special Track on Databases and Big Data Management (DBDM)

March 31- April 4, 2025
Sicily, Italy

1. SAC 2025

In the last thirty-nine years, ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary and
international forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineering, and other computer
related professionals to gather, interact, present, and disseminate their research and development
work. ACM SAC has been sponsored by the Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP),
and SIGAPP’s mission is to further the interests of the computing professionals engaged in the
development of new computing techniques and applications areas and the transfer of computing
technology to new problem domains.

SAC 2025 will be held on March 31 – April 4, 2025 in Sicily, Italy. The conference proceedings will
be published by ACM and will be also available online through ACM's Digital Library. For additional
information, please visit the above official ACM SAC 2025 web site.

2. Special Track on Databases and Big Data Management (DBDM)

For many years, the Database Theory, Technology, and Applications track has been one of the
important parts of the ACM SAC conference. To support ACM SAC, we have successfully organized
the Database Theory, Technology, and Applications tracks (2005-2018) and Databases and Big Data
Management Track (2019-2024) under the leadership and guidance of ACM SAC Organization
Committees in the past. We strongly believe that this track will still be a very important, interesting,
and beneficia forum for various database scientists, researchers, engineers, and practitioners from
all over the world to exchange their great ideas, to share their research experiences, and to
disseminate their research results. Taking into account the current trends in research and
technology related to Big Data Management, we would like to propose a small change in the title as
well as in the main topics of the track. Our proposal is the “Databases and Big Data Management”
(DBDM) track, which aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with different
backgrounds related to data management in general. The major topics of interest for the track
include, but not necessarily limited to:

Database Management Systems

Access Methods, Indexing Techniques, Physical Database Design
Cache, Buffer, Memory, Storage, and File Systems Management
Concurrency Control, Database Recovery, Transaction Processing, and Database Auditing
Database Performance Tuning, Benchmarking, and Measurement

4. Guidelines for Paper Submission

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes
three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative
computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and
industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.

Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind review process by at least
three referees for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be
communicated via email. All papers must be submitted electronically in the format of Adobe PDF
and Postscript (preferably) or MS Word. Please, upload your papers electronically to the website:

Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the paper body. Any self-reference should
be in the third person. The paper length is 8 pages + 2 pages at extra charge (max of 10 pages). The
program committee may reject papers that exceed this length on the grounds of length alone. In
addition, for each submitted paper, a separated cover page (preferably in MS Word or plain ASCII)
should be sent to the email address:

including the paper title, abstract, list of key words, and list of authors with full names and postal
addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses. One of the authors must be
designated as the primary contact point to receive the notification at the time of the paper

If your submitted manuscript gets accepted by ACM SAC 2025, the final camera-ready copy must
follow the template provided ACM SAC 2025. The template can be downloaded from the URL:

At least one of the authors of the accepted paper must register for the conference and present the
paper, and the final camera-ready copies of accepted papers must fit within eight (8) two-column
pages, with the option to add two pages at an additional charge. Accepted papers will be published
in the ACM SAC 2025 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 digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and
posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers
and will also be published as extended three (3) two-column pages’ abstracts in the ACM SAC 2025
proceedings (with the option to add an additional page at an additional charge). Please note that a
paper cannot be submitted to more than one track.

8. Call for Student Research Abstracts

Research Abstracts:
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 2025 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 interest.

All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners with expertise
in the track focus area to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have the
opportunity to give poster presentations of their work and compete for three top wining places.
The SRC committee will evaluate and select First, Second, and Third place winners. The winners
will receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet dinner.
Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for


Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts (length is 3 pages + 1 page at extra charge (max
of 4 pages)) of their original un-published and in-progress research work following the instructions
published at SAC 2025 website. The submissions must address research work related to a SAC
track, with emphasis on the innovation behind the research idea, including the problem being
investigated, the proposed approach and research methodology, and sample preliminary results of
the work. In addition, the abstract should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the
approach, and applicability of anticipated results to real-world problems. All abstracts must be
submitted thought the START Submission system. Submitting the same abstract to multiple tracks
is not allowed. Please upload your paper electronically to:
