CALL FOR PAPERS
For the past twentytwo 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 research. SAC is sponsored by the 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 Digital Library. More information about SIGAPP and past editions of SAC can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigapp
The Security Track reaches its tenth edition this year, thus appearing among the most established tracks in the Symposium. The list of issues remains vast, ranging from protocols to workflows .
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
- software security (protocols, operating systems, etc.)
- hardware security (smartcards, biometric technologies, etc.)
- mobile security (properties for/from mobile agents, etc.)
- network security (anti-virus, anti-hacker, anti-DoS tools, firewalls, real-time monitoring, etc.)
- alternatives to cryptography (steganography, etc.)
- security-specific software development practices (vulnerability testing, fault-injection resilience, etc.)
- privacy and anonymity (trust management, pseudonymity, identity management, electronic voting, etc.)
- safety and dependability issues (reliability, survivability, etc.)
- cyberlaw and cybercrime (copyrights, trademarks, defamation, intellectual property, etc.)
- security management and usability issues (security configuration, policy management, usability trials etc.)
- workflow and service security (business processes, web services,

The submission guidelines must be strictly followed for a paper to be considered.
Original papers from the above mentioned or other related areas will
be considered. Only full papers about original and unpublished research
are sought. Parallel submission to other conferences or other tracks of
SAC 2011 is forbidden. Each paper must be BLIND in the sense that it
must only include its title but not mention anything about its authors.
Self-reference must be blind too. All submissions must be formatted
using the ACM conference-specific
LaTeX style, which can be obtained from the symposium web
page.The standard extension of a submission in the stated format is
6 pages. Longer papers (up to 8 pages
maximum) will imply an additional charge. All papers must be submitted
by 24 August 2010.
Each paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees.Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2011 proceedings. Some papers may only be accepted as poster papers, and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the proceedings. According to the authors' guidelines, which can be obtained from the symposium web page, at least one author per paper must register before their paper is included in the proceedings.
