ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

The 31th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing in Marrakech, Morocco,

April 3 – 7, 2017.

Data Streams Track

Call for Papers

The rapid development in Big Data information science and technology in general 
and in growth complexity and volume of data in particular has introduced new 
challenges for the research community. Many sources produce data continuously. 
Examples include the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Cities, Urban Computing, 
sensor networks, wireless networks, radio frequency identification, health-care 
devices and information systems, customer click streams, telephone records, 
multimedia data, scientific data, sets of retail chain transactions, etc. These 
sources are called data streams. A data stream is an ordered sequence of 
instances that can be read only once or a small number of times using limited 
computing and storage capabilities. These sources of data are characterized by 
being open-ended, flowing at high-speed, and generated by non stationary 


We are looking for original, unpublished work related to algorithms, methods 
and applications on big data streams and large scale machine learning. Topics 
include (but are not restricted) to:


   Real-Time Analytics


   Big Data Mining


   Data Stream Models


   Large Scale Machine Learning


   Languages for Stream Query


   Continuous Queries


   Clustering from Data Streams


   Decision Trees from Data Streams


   Association Rules from Data Streams


   Decision Rules from Data Streams


   Bayesian networks from Data Streams


   Feature Selection from Data Streams


   Visualization Techniques for Data Streams


   Incremental on-line Learning Algorithms


   Single-Pass Algorithms


   Temporal, spatial, and spatio-temporal data mining


   Scalable Algorithms


   Real-Time and Real-World Applications using Stream data


   Distributed and Social Stream Mining


   Urban Computing, Smart Cities


   Internet of Things (IoT)


1. Paper Submission: September 29, 2016

2. Author Notification: November 10, 2016

3. Camera‐ready copies: November 25, 2016


Papers should be submitted in PDF. Authors are invited to submit original 
papers in all topics related to data streams. All papers should be submitted in 
ACM 2-

column camera ready format for publication in the symposium proceedings. ACM

SAC follows a double blind review process. Consequently, the author(s) name(s) 

address(s) must NOT appear in the body of the submitted paper, and 

should be in the third person. This is to facilitate double blind review 
required by

ACM. All submitted papers must include the paper identification number provided 

the eCMS system when the paper is first registered. The number must appear on 

front page, above the title of the paper. Each submitted paper will be fully 

and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees. The conference

proceedings will be published by ACM. The maximum number of pages allowed for

the final papers is 6 pages. There is a set of templates to support the 
required paper

format for a number of document preparation systems at:

Important notice:

1. Please submit your contribution via SAC 2017 Webpage.
2. Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper, poster, 
or SRC abstract in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending 
SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for including the work in the 
ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers, posters, and SRC 
abstracts will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Student Research Competition

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their 

ideas are invited to submit original abstracts of their research work in areas 

experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2017 Tracks.

The SRC program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet

and exchange ideas with researcher and practitioners in their areas of 
interest. All

research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners 

expertise in the track focus area to which they are submitted. Authors of 

abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster and oral presentations of 

work and compete for three top wining places. The SRC committee will evaluate 

select First, Second, and Third place winners. The winners will receive cash 

and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet dinner. 
Authors of

selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award 

for support.

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (minimum of two 

maximum of four pages) following the instructions published at SAC 2017 website.

Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. Submissions 

address original and unpublished research work related to a SAC track, with

emphasis on the innovation behind the research idea. The submission should 

the research problem being investigated, the proposed approach and research

methodology, and sample preliminary results of the work. In addition, the 

should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the approach, and

applicability of the results to real-world problems. All abstracts must be 

thought the START Submission system.

If you encounter any problems with your submission, please contact the Program
