SAC 2007

For the past twenty-one years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world.

SAC 2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by Seoul National University in Seoul and The Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do.


Today's large scale software systems are typically designed and implemented using the concepts of the object-oriented (OO) paradigm.

However, there is still a need for existing OO languages and architectures to continuously adapt in response to demands for new features and innovative approaches.

These new features, to name a few, include unanticipated software evolution, security, safety, distribution, and interoperability.

The basic aim of the OOPS track at the SAC 2007 is to promote and stimulate further research on the object-oriented programming and distributed-object paradigms.

This track will foster the development of extensions and enhancements to the prevalent OO languages, such as Java, C# and C++, the formulation of innovative OO-based middleware approaches, and the improvements to existing and well-established distributed-object based systems.

Specifically, this track will invite papers investigating the applicability of new ideas to widespread, and standard object-oriented languages and distributed-object architectures.

A medium to long-term vision is also solicited, tackling general issues about the current and future role of prevalent OO languages and distributed architectures in Computer Science and Engineering.

Particularly of interest for this track are those papers that provide a thorough analysis covering following aspects: theory, design, implementation, applicability, performance evaluation, and comparison/integration with existing constructs and mechanisms.

Original papers and implementation reports are invited from all areas of OO programming languages and distributed-object computing.

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

> Programming abstractions
> Advanced type mechanisms and type safety
> Multi-paradigm features
> Language features in support of open systems
> Aspect-oriented and component-based programming
> Reflection, meta-programming
> Program structuring, modularity, generative
> Compositional languages
> Distributed objects and concurrency
> Middleware
> Heterogeneity and interoperability
> Applications of distributed object computing

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.

Electronic submission in PDF format is required at the following page.
Please, contact Jeff Allen (jallen@cs.iupui.edu) for any problems with the conference management system. Hardcopy and fax submissions will not be accepted.

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 preferred format for the submission is the ACM SIG Proceedings Template (available through http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The body of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words (5 pages according to the above style). Papers that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection.

All papers must be submitted by September 8, 2006.

Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed.


Accepted full papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings, with the option (at additional expense) to add 3 more pages. 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, as it is customary, after the conference the accepted full papers will be selected for publication on a special issue.
