Call for Papers

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: October 10, 2014
  • Notification: November 30, 2014
  • Final version due: December 15, 2014
  • Symposium: April 13 - 17, 2015
We sollicit paper sumbissions in two categories: regular papers and student papers for the Student Research Competition (SRC).

ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has gathered scientists from different areas of computing over the past twenty-eight years. The forum represents an opportunity to interact with different communities sharing an interest in applied computing. SAC 2015 is sponsored by SIGAPP and will be held at the he historic city of Salamanca, Spain.

Software Verification and Testing Track

We invite authors to submit new results in formal verification and testing, as well as development of technologies to improve the usability of formal methods in software engineering. Also welcome are detailed descriptions of applications of mechanical verification to large scale software. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
  • model checking
  • theorem proving
  • correct by construction development
  • model-based testing
  • verification-based testing
  • symbolic execution
  • static and run-time analysis
  • abstract interpretation
  • analysis methods for dependable systems
  • software certification and proof carrying code
  • fault diagnosis and debugging
  • verification of large scale software systems
  • real world applications and case studies applying software verification

Paper Submission

Regular papers

Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. Submissions should be in electronic format, via the SAC submission site.

Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be avoided and made in the third person. Submitted paper will undergo a blind review process. Authors of accepted papers should submit an editorial revision of their papers that fits within six two-column pages (an extra two pages, to a total of eight pages, may be available at a charge). Please comply to this page limitation already at submission time. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2015 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/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Special issue

A special issue of Science of Computer Pogromming has been confirmed. Selected papers will be invited for submission, and will be peer-reviewed according to the standard policy of Science of Computer Programming.

Student Research Competion

As before, we organise a Student Research Competition (SRC) Program to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with researchers and practitioners in their areas of interest. Guidelines and information about the SRC program can be found here. Submissions to the SRC program should be in electronic form via the SAC submission website
