The Software Engineering Track

at The 26th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2011)

TaiChung, Taiwan

March 21-25, 2011


The objective of the SE track is to provide researchers and practitioners with an embedded forum for presenting and discussing their ideas and experiences with technologies, theories, and tools used for producing software with high quality more effectively and efficiently. The SE Track is big enough to represent major topics in software engineering, but small enough to provide an in-depth representation of theory and practice in these areas. Academic researchers and industry participants can share their ideas and practices. In particular, the SE Track not only allows the software engineering academic community to understand the areas that are vital to the software industry, but also gives software engineering practitioners an opportunity to express their needs.

Topics of Interests

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Paper Submission & Selection

Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in the PDF format with no more than six pages using the ACM-SAC proceedings format. Authors' names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site and not appear in the submitted papers. Each submission will be reviewed in a double-blind process according to the ACM-SAC Regulations. Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution, presentation quality, and relevance to the SE Track. Upon paper acceptance, prospective authors must provide a revised, camera-ready version which takes into account the review comments. The conference proceedings are published by ACM and are also available online through ACM’s Digital Library.
