Call For Papers



Authors are invited to submit original papers in all areas of experi­mental computing and application develop­ment for the technical program, and panel and workshop pro­posals that deal with the symposium themes via the various track hosted by SAC 2003.  Submissions fall into the following categories:

·  Original and unpub­lished research work

·  Reports of innova­tive computing ap­plications in the arts, sciences, engi­neering, and busi­ness areas

·  Reports of success­ful technology transfer to new problem domains

·  Reports of indus­trial experience and demos of new inno­vative systems

·  Workshops and Panels

Peer groups with expertise in the track focus area will blindly review submissions to that track. Accepted papers will be pub­lished in the annual conference proceed­ings. Expanded ver­sions of selected papers from all cate­gories will be consid­ered for publication in SIGAPP Applied Computing Review (SIGAPP ACR). Submission guidelines will be posted on SAC 2003 Website.

Paper submissions should be sent to the appropriate Track Chair. Track Chairs contact information will be made available on SAC 2003 Website soon. Papers spanning more than one track should be mailed to the Program Chairs. Submissions that fall under new topics are also invited and should be directed to the Program Chairs. For panels and workshops, please contact the Program Chairs for submission guide­lines. For more information please visit SAC 2003 Web­site.


The following paper submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

1)       Submit six (6) copies of the original paper to the appropriate Track Chair.

2)       The name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate blind review.

3)       The body of the paper should not exceed 4,000 words (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced, 12-point font size).

4)       A separate cover sheet attached to each copy should include the title of the paper, the name(s), affiliation(s), and address(es),  email, phone, and fax of the author(s).

5)       Include a cover letter with the title of the paper, the name, affiliation, address, email, phone, and fax of the author who serves as the contact person for the paper.

6)       Submission must be received by Friday September 6, 2002.


The tutorial program is an integral part of SAC 2003. The or­ganizing committee solicits tutorials that tend to stress state-of-the-art technology and directly applied to the practitioners' field. Presenters are invited to submit proposals for tutorials in all areas of experimental computing and appli­cation development. Tutorials duration is either full-day or half-day. The tutorial pro­posal should include a brief summary and outline, specific goals and objectives, ex­pected background of the audience, a bio­graphical sketch of the presenter(s). All tutorial proposals should be directed to the Tutori­als Chair. Tutorial submission guidelines will be made available on SAC 2003 Web­site.


The following tutorial submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

1)      Submit two (2) copies of the tutorial proposal to the Tutorials Chair.

2)      The proposal should be no more than 500 words (approximately 2 single spaced pages, 12-point font size).

3)      Attach a cover sheet to each copy with the practitioner’s name, affiliation, address, email, phone, and fax.

4)      Submission must be received by Friday September 6, 2002.
