Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit full papers about original and unpublished research. We would like to emphasize that we may accept the submission of industrial experience reports, commercial tools case studies and reports of innovative computing applications if they are written in a scientific way.

Parallel submission to other conferences, other tracks of SAC 2017 or any other publications is forbidden. Papers submitted should not have been previously published and should not be subsequently published in the same form elsewhere.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper: This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Submissions should be properly anonymized to facilitate blind reviewing: papers being submitted should not list the authors, affiliations or addresses on the first page and authors are also encouraged to take care throughout the entire document to minimise references that may reveal the identity of the authors or institution. The body of each paper should not exceed 5,000 words. 
Papers must fit within six (6) two column pages, with the option (at additional expense) to add two (2) more pages. Please check the author kit on the main SAC website: the format is usually the format used in the ACM templates, the 2017 ACM SAC authoring documents are available on the main ACM SAC 2017 Web site: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2017/ Papers failing to comply with length limitations risk immediate rejection. 

At least three reviewers will be assigned to each submission to the TRECK track. Accepted papers are published by ACM in both printed form and CD-ROM; they are also available on the Web through the ACM Digital Library. A second set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as posters and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the symposium proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must be prepared to sign a copyright statement and must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.

For accepted papers, registration for the conference is required and allows accepted papers to be printed in the conference proceedings. The accepted paper MUST be presented by an author or a proxy. This is a requirement for the paper to be part of the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Please register and submit your abstract and paper via the following link https://www.softconf.com/h/sac2017/ and choosing the TRECK track when submitting!

Submission of the full paper (PDF only) will be accepted until 23.59 PM GMT, October 8th, 2016. No more papers will be accepted after that time.
