SAC '04

Over the past eighteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
become a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers,
software engineers, and application developers from around the world to 
and present their work. SAC 2004 is sponsored by the ACM Special 
Interest Group
on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). For additional information, please check 
the SAC
web page: "http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2004".

A technical track on Programming Languages will be held at SAC'04. It 
will be
a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners throughout the 
world to share
technical ideas and experiences relating to implementation and 
application of
programming languages. Original papers and experience reports are 
invited in all
areas of programming languages. Major topics of interest include but are 
limited to the following:

Compiling Techniques
Domain-Specific Languages
Formal Semantics and Syntax
Garbage Collection
Language Design and Implementation
New Programming Language Ideas and Concepts
New Programming Paradigms
Practical Experiences with Programming Languages
Program Analysis and Verification
Program Generation and Transformation
Programming Languages from All Paradigms (Agent-Oriented, Aspect-Oriented,
    Functional, Logic, Object-Oriented, etc.)
Visual Programming Languages


Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of 
computing and application development relevant to the theme of the 
track. This
includes the following categories of submissions:
1) Original and unpublished research work,
2) Reports of innovative applications to the arts, sciences, 
engineering, and business areas,  
3) Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains,  
4) Reports of industrial experience and demos of new innovative systems.

All submissions will be peer reviewed. Papers will be selected based on 
originality, timeliness, significance, relevance and clarity of 
Accepted papers will be published in the symposium proceedings. Expanded 
of the accepted papers will be considered for publication in the ACM/SIGAPP
quarterly Applied Computing Review. A set of selected papers, which did 
not get
accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will be 
as extended 2-page abstracts in the symposium proceedings.

The following submission guidelines must be strictly followed:
* Submit the original manuscripts in an electronic format
    to:  <sacpl@ecs.fullerton.edu>. The file format should be PDF.
    The title of the submission should be the last name of the first
    author (e.g., If the first author is John Smith then the
    submission should be titled as "smith.pdf").
* 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 blind review. Only the title
    should be shown at the first page without the author's
* A separate cover sheet should show the title of the paper, the
    author(s) name(s) and affiliation(s), and the address (including
    e-mail, telephone, and FAX) to which correspondence should
    be sent. This sheet should also be submitted in an electronic
    format to <sacpl@ecs.fullerton.edu> and it should be titled as
* The body of paper should not exceed 4,000 words
    (approximately 15 pages, double-spaced, 12-point size). You
    may refer to the final copy format at
    "http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html". The
    total number of final pages without any extra page charge will be 5.
* An abstract including the title of the paper at the beginning
    (without having any author's information) as a separate text
    file should be submitted. It should be titled as "smith-abstract.txt"
* Submit a cover page (PDF format), a manuscript (PDF format)
    and an abstract (TEXT format) as attachments to your email.
    Your submission email text should include the author(s)
    name(s), the title, and a contact point (name and email address)
    you prefer.
* All submissions must be received by September 6, 2003.
