SAC 2021

The 36th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

Gwangju, South Korea Mar. 22 ~ Mar. 26, 2021

Call For Track Proposals:

The organizing committee solicits proposals for organizing and hosting tracks during SAC 2021, to be held in Gwangju, South Korea. Prospective track chairs should submit an up to two-page description of the proposed track. The proposal should include the track title, aims, topics, and the rationale for having the track in SAC. In addition, please include a short description of the activities the track chair(s) will undertake upon acceptance of the proposal, the dissemination of the call-for- papers for the track, and the management of the review process. A short CV of the prospective track chair(s) with reference to research interests and publication record directly related to the themes of the proposed track is required. Any previous experience of involvement in the organization of similar events should be highlighted in the CV. In the interest of brevity, reference to the webpage of the prospective track chair(s) where such information can be found will be sufficient.

Call For Papers:

Authors are invited to submit original papers in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical program via the various tracks hosted by SAC 2021. Submissions fall into the following categories: (1) Original and unpublished research work; (2) Reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, and business areas; (3) Reports of successful technology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; and (4) Reports of industrial experience and demos of new innovative systems. Peer groups with expertise in the tracks focus areas will blindly review submissions. Accepted papers will be published in the annual proceedings and ACM digital library.

Call for SRC Abstracts:

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts of maximum 4 pages in ACM camera-ready format. Submitting the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. Abstracts must address original and unpublished research work related to a SAC track, with emphasis on the innovation behind the research idea. The submission should address the research problem being investigated, the proposed approach and research methodology, and sample preliminary results of the work. In addition, the abstract should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the approach, and applicability of the results to real-world problems.

Call for Tutorials:

The organizing committee solicits tutorials that tend to stress state-of-the-art technologies directly applied to the practitioners' field. Presenters are invited to submit proposals for tutorials in all areas of experimental computing and application development. Tutorial’s duration is either full-day or half-day. The proposal should include a brief summary and outline, specific goals and objectives, expected background of the audience, and a biographical sketch of the presenter(s). All tutorial proposals should be directed via email to the Tutorials Chair.

Details about each solicitation and submission instructions will be posted on SAC 2021 website in time for submission.

Important Notice:

An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the work. This is a requirement for all accepted papers, invited posters, and invited SRC submissions to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of scheduled papers, posters, and student research abstracts will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

In participating SAC’21, you acknowledge and follow ACM’s Policy against Harassment at ACM Activities.
