Call For Papers


Special Track on Database Theory, Technology, and Applications

March 18-22, 2013
Coimbra, Portugal

1. SAC 2013

In the last twenty seven 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 2013 will be held on March 18-22, 2013. 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 2013 web site.

2. Special Track on Database Theory, Technology, and Applications (DTTA)

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, a special track on Database
Theory, Technology, and Applications will be held again in
SAC 2013. The DTTA track will be a forum for database scholars,
research scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout
the world to share their theoretical results, technical ideas,
and exploratory experiences relating to implementation and
applications. You are cordially invited to submit technical
papers to the DTTA track of SAC 2013, and major topics of
interest for the track include, but not limited to the following:

Active, Deductive, and Logic Databases
Cache and Buffer Management
Cooperative Database Systems and Workflow Management

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 This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of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. Each paper must not exceed 4,000 words. 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:

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 submission.

If your submitted manuscript gets accepted by ACM SAC 2013, the final camera-ready copy must follow the template provided ACM SAC 2013.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 six (6) two-column pages, with the option to add two pages at a charge of $80 per each additional page. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2013 proceedings.

Paper registration for the conference is required and allows the paper to be printed in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers will result in excluding the papers from the ACM/IEEE 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 two (2) two-column pages abstracts in the ACM SAC 2013 proceedings.

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 2013 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 support.

Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts (minimum of two pages; maximum of four pages) of their original un-published and in-progress research work following the instructions published at SAC 2013 web-site. 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.
