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 mechanisms. 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 http://sac.cs.iupui.edu/SAC2009. All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works that are currently not under review in any conference or journal.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 http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009/downloads09.htm). 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 http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009. - 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.
