*** Call for Track Proposals ***

For the past eighteen 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, Co-
ordination, Computational Sciences, Database Technology, Data Mining,
Embedded Systems, Evolutionary Computing, Parallel and Distributed
Systems, Mobile Computing, Programming Languages, Software Engineering
and Web Technologies. SAC 2003, which was held in Melbourne, Florida,
USA, consisted of 21 tracks that hosted 196 accepted papers out of 526
submissions. More information on past SAC events can be found at


The 19th Annual SAC (SAC 2004) will be held between 14-17 March 2004
in Nicosia, Cyprus, and hosted by the University of Cyprus. The
conference Steering Committee solicits proposals for organizing and
hosting tracks. Perspective track chairs should submit an up to two
pages proposal 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 Steering Committee (SC) with
respect to the above criteria. The SC 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
proposal), (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 the ACM and SAC conference
rules. The SC reserve the right to cancel at any time a track, if
these responsibilities are not addressed adequately by the track

Please submit your proposal electronically in any acceptable readable
form no later than April 15, 2003 to:
