SAC '99Over the past thirteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work. SAC '99 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups SIGAda SIGAPP SIGBIO and SIGCUE.
SAC '99 will include a Keynote Address by Professor Edsger Dijkstra.
PapersAuthors are invited to contribute original papers (long and short papers) in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical sessions. This includes three categories of submissions:
Peer groups appropriate to each category will blindly review submissions in that category. Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the conference proceedings. Expanded versions of selected papers from all categories will be considered for publication in the ACM/SIGAPP quarterly Applied Computing Review or one of the other participating SIGs' publications. Panel and workshop proposals that deal with the symposium themes via the various track titles are encouraged.
In addition to the topics covered by listed tracks, papers are solicited in classification systems, geographic information systems, image processing, biomolecular computing, cognitive science, biology, chemistry, physics, geosciences, electronic libraries, office automation and other areas of applications development. Papers not relating to a specific track or spanning more than one track should be mailed to the Program Chair.
TutorialsAn integral part of the Symposium is the tutorial program. Since the Symposium focuses on applications, tutorials tend to stress state-of-the-art technology which may be applied directly to the work of practioners in the field. Tutorial proposals are being sought.
