*** Call for Track Proposals ***

For the past seventeen years the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has been a primary forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers and application developers to gather, interact and
present their work. The ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP)is the sole sponsor of SAC. The conference
proceedings are published by ACM and are also available on the web
through ACM's Digital Library.

SAC is based on a flexible structure of mostly self-contained and
self-managed tracks. Over the past years it has hosted tracks on a
variety of topics such as Artificial Intelligence, BioInformatics,
Computers in Education, Parallel and Distributed Systems, Internet
Technologies, Software Engineering, etc. SAC'02, which was held in
Madrid, Spain, consisted of 21 tracks which hosted 194 accepted papers
out of 457 submissions.

The 18th Annual SAC (SAC'03) will be hosted by the Florida Institute
of Technology in Melbourne, Florida, USA between 9-12 of March 2003.
The conference Organizing Committee solicits proposals for hosting
tracks. Perspective track chairs should submit an up to two pages
description for organizing a track, which should include at least the
following items:

1) The proposed title for the track with a description of
      its aims, topics it will cover and rationale for having
      such a track in SAC. This rationale should refer to any
      related conference events that are held regularly and
      why the proposed track differs from them or complements them.
      The proposed track should not be over general but also
      not overly specialized, thus being able to attract a wide
      audience of people sharing similar interests. Proposals from
      industry are also welcomed. Despite its name, SAC also welcomes
      topics of mostly theoretical nature, provided there is clear
      practical potential in applying the results of such work.

2) A short description of the activities the track chair will
      undertake upon acceptance of the proposal, to disseminate the
      call-for-papers for his/her track, manage the review process and
      collect final materials from authors of accepted papers. (Specific
      guidelines to track chairs regarding these issues will also be

3) A short CV of the perspective track chair(s) with reference to
      research interests and publication record directly related to
      the themes of the proposed track, and any previous experience
      of involvement in the organization of similar events (in the
      interest of brevity, reference to a personal web page where such
      information can be found will be sufficient).

All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference and Program Chairs
with respect to the above criteria. The Chairs reserve the right to:
(1) accept a proposal as is, (2) recommend merging of similar
proposals with a considerable overlap in the topics addressed (in this
case the track chairs of the different proposals will be asked to form
a single chair), (3) reject a proposal.

Upon acceptance of a proposal, the track chairs will be notified of
their responsibilities in managing the affairs of their tracks, as
such responsibilities are defined by both ACM and SAC Organizing
Committee. The Chairs reserve the right to cancel at any time a track,
if these responsibilities are not addressed adequately by respective
track chair(s).

Please submit your proposal electronically and in any acceptable
readable form to:
