- SAC 2009

For the past twenty-three years, the ACM Symposium
on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering
forum for applied computer scientists, computer
engineers, software engineers, and application
developers from around the world. SAC 2009 is
sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by
University of Hawaii at Manoa and Chaminade
University of Honolulu.

- OOPS Track

The object-oriented (OO) paradigm is extensively used to
design and implement today's large scale software systems.
However, existing OO languages and platforms need to evolve
to better support features like interoperability, software
reuse, dynamic software adaptation, efficiency on multicore
hardware, security, and safety. The aim of OOPS is to foster
the development of extensions to existing OO languages and
platforms, as well as the design and implementation of new
languages and platforms embracing and enhancing the
object-oriented paradigm.
Particularly of interest for OOPS are papers that provide
a thorough analysis covering most of the following aspects:
theory, design, implementation, applicability, performance
evaluation, and comparison/integration with existing constructs and

The specific topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are
not limited to, the following:

    * Language design and implementation
    * Type systems, static analysis, formal methods
    * Integration with other paradigms
    * Aspects, components, and modularity
    * Reflection, meta-programming                      
    * Databases and persistence                 
    * Distributed, concurrent or parallel systems       
    * Interoperability, versioning and software adaptation

- Submission Instructions

Prospective papers should be submitted in pdf format using the
provided automated submission system available at 

All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works
that are currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both
basic and applied research papers are welcome.

Hardcopy and fax submissions will not be accepted.
Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed.
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 a blind review process.
The format of the paper must adhere to the sig-alternate style (the
templates are available at 
The paper should not exceed 8 pages according to the above style;
please note that this is the same page limit as for the final version.
However, for camera ready papers exceeding 5 pages each
additional page will be charged 80 USD.

Papers that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection.
All papers must be submitted by August 16, 2008.
For more information please visit the SAC 2009 Website at

- Proceedings and special issue

Accepted full papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference
proceedings. Accepted poster papers will be published as extended 2-page
abstracts in the same proceedings.

Please note that full registration is required for paper and poster
inclusion in the conference proceedings and CD. Student registration
does not cover paper and poster inclusion in the conference proceedings,
but it is only intended to encourage student attendance.

Finally, following the tradition of the past OOPS editions, after the
conference some of the accepted papers will be selected for
publication in a journal special issue.
