CALL FOR PAPERS AND REFEREES
Statistics about last year's Security Track
For the past sixteen 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. SAC is sponsored by ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP); its proceedings are published by ACM in both printed form and CD-ROM; they are also available on the web through the ACM's Digital Library. More information about SIGAPP and past SACs can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigapp
Special Track on Computer Security:
The proliferation of network computing and especially the ubiquity of the Internet has made security one of the key areas in modern computing. The track aims at bringing together researchers working on applied issues in computer and information security, ranging from protocols to laws.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
We expect that authors of the papers chosen will expand their work to better present their ideas. Paper will also go through further review by a committee that will be formed by the track chairs.
Publication of the best papers in the journal above is contingent to
agreeing in expanding their papers and addressing issues that may be
out in the review process.
Track Program Chair(s):
Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:
Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to one of the track chairs (see addresses above). Alternatively, submit your paper electronically to one of the track chairs (see email address above) in uuencoded compressed postscript format or PDF; 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 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 email, telephone and FAX) to which correspondence should be sent.
