Participants will be selected on the basis of submitted papers (10
single-spaced A4 pages maximum) by three referees at least. Papers
must include in the first page: title, author's name(s), affiliation,
complete mailing address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, an
abstract of 300 words maximum, and up to five keywords. Electronic
submission (compressed/zipped/gzipped standard PostScript file under
the name is strongly encouraged; alternatively,
authors may send five hardcopies of the paper via surface mail.
Submitted papers should arrive to the Conference Chair no later than
March 30, 1999.

Message 2: Last CFP: ACM SAC'99 - Track on Coordination

Subject: Last CFP: ACM SAC'99 - Track on Coordination


 1999 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC '99)
Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

 February 28 - March 2, 1999
 The Menger, San Antonio, Texas, U. S. A.


SAC '99:
Over the past thirteen 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'99 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups

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'99. 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.

This track on coordination is held for the second time as part of ACM
SAC's events. The CFP for the ACM SAC'98 track attracted 33
submissions from 18 countries; 8 of those submissions were accepted as
regular papers and 4 more as short papers.

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.
* 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

The accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM
SAC'99 proceedings. There will also be a special issue of the Journal
of Programming Languages, Chapman & Hall (
jp/default.html) with expanded versions of selected papers from those
that will be accepted for this special track as regular papers.

Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

* Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to the SAC '99
Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track Program Chair
(address 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 August 17, 1998.

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

Important Dates:
* August 17, 1998: Paper Submission.
* October 15, 1998: Author Notification.
* December 1, 1998: Camera-Ready Copy.
