31st ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
Special track on
Object Oriented Programming Languages and Systems
For the past thirty 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 2016 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP), and will be hosted by the University of Pisa, and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna University, Italy.

Student Research Competition: Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit original abstracts of their research work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2016 Tracks. The Student Research Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with researcher and practitioners in their areas of interest. For further details see the call for student research abstract and the SRC information sheet.
OOPS TRACK: AIMS AND TOPICS
Object-oriented programming (OOP) has become the mainstream programming paradigm for developing complex software systems in most application domains.
However, existing OO languages and platforms need to evolve to meet the continuous demand for new abstractions, features, and tools able to reduce the time, effort, and cost of creating object-oriented software systems, and improving their performance, quality and usability.
To this aim, OOPS is seeking for research advances bringing benefits in all those typical aspects of software development, such as modeling, prototyping, design, implementation, concurrency and distribution, code generation, analysis, verification, testing, debugging, evaluation, deployment, maintenance, reuse, and software evolution and adaptation.
The specific OO related topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are not limited to, the following:
Prospective papers should be submitted to the track in pdf format using the START submission system for regular and SRC papers available through the SAC 2016 home page.
Submission of the same paper to multiple tracks is not allowed; all papers should represent original and previously unpublished works that are currently not under review in any conference or journal.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.
SAC 2016 will use double-blind reviewing; to facilitate this, author name(s) and institution(s) must be omitted, and references to authors' own related work should be in the third person.
The format of the paper must adhere to the sig-alternate style. Full papers are limited to 6 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages at extra charge (80 USD per page). Posters are limited to 3 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page at extra charge (80 USD). The length of the SRC abstracts is 2 pages with no additional pages at extra charge.
Papers that fall short the above requirements are subjected to rejection. All papers must be submitted by September 28, 2015 (extended strict deadline). For more information please visit the SAC 2016 home page.
Accepted papers will be published by ACM in the annual conference proceedings. Accepted posters will be published as 3-4 pages extended abstracts in the same proceedings (the additional third page will be charged 80 USD).
An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the work. This is a requirement for all accepted papers, 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. Student registration is only intended to encourage student attendance and does not cover inclusion of papers/posters in the conference proceedings.
Finally, following the tradition of the past OOPS editions, depending on the quality and the overall number of accepted papers, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for a journal special issue, after the conference.
