                    2000 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2000)

    Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

                                                    March 19-21, 2000
                                              Villa Olmo, Como, Italy


SAC 2000:
Over the past fourteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists and
application developers from around the world to interact and present
their work. SAC 2000 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and in cooperation with ACM SIGs SIGBIO,

Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of
experimental computing and application development for the technical
sessions. There will be a number of special tracks on such issues as
Programming Languages, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Mobile and
Scientific Computing, Internet and the WWW, etc.

Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track:
A special track on coordination models, languages and applications
will be held at SAC 2000. The term "coordination" here is used in a
rather broad sense covering traditional models and languages (e.g.
ones based on the Shared Dataspace and CHAM metaphors) but also other
related formalisms such as configuration and architectural description
frameworks, systems modeling abstractions and languages, programming
skeletons, etc.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

      * Novel models, languages, programming and implementation techniques.
      * Relationship with other computational models such as object
          oriented, declarative (functional, logic, constraint) programming
          or extensions of them with coordination capabilities.
      * Applications (especially where the industry is involved).
      * Theoretical aspects (semantics, reasoning, verification).
      * Software architectures and software engineering techniques.
      * Configuration and Architecture Description Languages.
      * Middleware platforms (e.g. CORBA).
      * All aspects related to the modeling of Information Systems
          (groupware, Internet and the Web, workflow management, CSCW).

Guidelines for Submission:
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will
be considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1)
original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing
applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government,
education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology
transfer to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully
refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three
referees. The accepted papers in all categories will be published in
the ACM SAC 2000 proceedings.

Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

      * Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to either of the SAC 2000
          Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track Program Chairs
          (addresses shown above). Alternatively, submit your paper electronically
          in uuencoded compressed postscript format; this is strongly encouraged.
          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 blind review.

      * The body of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words (approximately
          15 pages, double-spaced).

      * A separate cover sheet (in the case of electronic submission this
          should be sent separately from the main paper) 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.

      * All submissions must be received by September 1, 1999.

Anyone wishing to review papers for this special track should contact the
Track Program Chairs at the addresses shown above.

Important Dates:
      * September 1, 1999: Paper Submission.
      * November 1, 1999: Author Notification.
      * December 1, 1999: Camera-Ready Copy.
