CALL FOR PAPERS

SAC '01 - 2001 ACM SYMPOSIUM ON APPLIED COMPUTING
Special Track on Artificial Intelligence and Computational Logic
March 11 - 14, 2001
Las Vegas, USA

SAC '01
Over the past fifteen 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 2001 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical sessions. For additional information, please check the SAC web page: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2001

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND COMPUTATIONAL LOGIC TRACK
A special track on Artificial Intelligence and Computational Logic will be held at SAC '01. It will be a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners throughout the world to share technical ideas and experiences relating to implementation and application of Artificial Intelligence. Original papers, tutorial (half or full day), and panel proposals are invited in all areas of Artificial Intelligence. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 

Artificial Intelligence Artificial Immune Systems Computational Logic Intelligent Embedded Systems
Machine Learning Neural Networks Image Analysis Image Segmentation and Classification
Search Techniques Knowledge-based Systems Knowledge Representation Simulation of Swarm Intelligence
Applications of Artificial Intelligence

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION
Original papers from the above-mentioned areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions:
1) Original and unpublished research
2) Reports of innovative artificial intelligence applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry
3) Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains

Each category of submissions will be reviewed by peer groups appropriate to that category. Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the symposium 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. Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

1) Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to one of the following co-chairs:

2) An electronic submission via e-mail is also recommended. The file format should be either MS-Word, RTF or PDF.
3) The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review.
4) The body of paper should not exceed 4,000 words (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced).
5) A separate cover sheet attached to each copy should show the title of the paper, the author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including e-mail, telephone, and FAX) to which correspondence should be sent.
