Call For Papers

The Software Engineering Track
at The 25th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2010)
Sierre, Switzerland
March 22-26, 2010


The objective of the SE track is to provide researchers and practitioners with an embedded forum for presenting and discussing their ideas and experiences with technologies, theories, and tools used for producing highly dependable software more effectively and efficiently. The SE Track is big enough to represent major topics in software engineering, but small enough to provide an in-depth representation of theory and practice in these areas. Academic researchers and industry participants can share their ideas and practices. In particular, the SE Track not only allows the software engineering academic community to understand the areas that are vital to the software industry, but also gives software engineering practitioners an opportunity to express their needs.

Topics of Interests

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Safety, Security, Privacy, and Risk Management
* Dependability and Reliability
* Fault Tolerance and Availability
* Metrics and Measurement
* Architecture, Framework, and Design Patterns
* Requirements Engineering
* Process, Standards, and Project Management
* Maintenance and Reverse Engineering
* Quality Assurance and Management
* Verification, Validation, Testing, and Analysis
* Formal Methods and Theories
* Component-Based Development and Reuse
* Empirical Studies, Benchmarking, and Industrial Best Practices
* Applications and Tools
* Pervasive, Ubiquitous, Service-Oriented Computing
* Collaborative, Distributed, Embedded, Real-Time, High Performance, Highly Dependable, Intelligent, Multimedia Systems

Paper Submission & Selection

Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in the PDF format with no more than eight pages using the ACM-SAC proceedings format. The first five pages are free. A charge of 80 USD will be imposed for each additional page. Authors’ names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site and not appear in the submitted papers. Each submission will be reviewed in a double-blind process according to the ACM-SAC Regulations. Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution, presentation quality, and relevance to the SE Track. Upon paper acceptance, prospective authors must provide a revised, camera-ready version which takes into account the review comments. The conference proceedings are published by ACM and are also available online through ACM’s Digital Library.

Journal Special Issue

For SAC 2007, the SE Track received 51 submissions with 16 accepted for presentation at the conference. Five of these were initially invited for possible publication in a special issue of Software Quality Journal published by Springer; two papers were accepted after the authors extended their conference papers to meet all the requirements set by the journal. Both papers have a focus on “Emerging Technologies for Improving Software Quality.” They appeared in Volume 16, Issue 3, September 2008.

For SAC 2009, we had 68 submissions with 20 accepted for presentation at the conference. Six of these have been selected for possible publication in a special issue of Information and Software Technology published by Elsevier. The special issue is expected to be published in summer 2010.

We plan to do the same in 2010 by inviting authors of selected papers to submit an extended version of their papers to a special journal issue guest-edited by the track chairs.
