SAC 2001

For the past fifteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been 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 2001 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). SAC 2001 is presented in cooperation with other special interest groups.


Authors are invited to submit original papers in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical sessions, and panel and workshop proposals that deal with the symposium themes via the various track titles. This includes five categories of submissions: 
  1. Original and unpublished research work
  2. Reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, and business areas 
  3. Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains
  4. Reports of industrial experience and demos of new innovative systems
  5. Panels, posters, and workshops
Peer groups appropriate to each category will blindly review submissions in that category. Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the annual conference proceedings. Expanded versions of selected papers from all categories will be considered for publication in the ACM SIGAPP Applied Computing Review (SIGAPP ACR). Submission guidelines will appear here in due course.

In addition to the topics covered in the list of technical tracks, the Program Chair invites topics for consideration in other areas of application development and will personally discuss those ideas with any potential author. Papers spanning more than one track should be mailed to the Program Chair. For panels, posters, and workshops, please contact the Program Chair for submission guidelines. For additional information please refer to the SIGAPP ACR, or contact the conference officials.

An integral part of SAC 2001 is the tutorial workshops program. Submitted tutorials should stress state-of-the-art technology that may be applied directly to the work of practitioners in the field. Presenters are invited to submit proposals for tutorials in all areas of experimental computing and application development. Tutorials for SAC 2001 will be either full-day or half-day tutorials. The proposal should include a brief summary and outline, specific goals and objectives, expected background of the audience, a biographical sketch of the presenter(s), and A/V equipment needed for the presentation. All tutorial proposals should be directed to the Tutorials Chair. Tutorial submission guidelines are available on SAC 2001 Website.
