The objective of the Software Engineering (SE) track is to provide an open forum for discussing a wide range of experiences and ideas of developing high-quality software applications more effectively and efficiently. The SE track examines both macroscopic and microscopic aspects of in-depth theories, tools, and practices in the field of software engineering. It provides a platform for academic researchers and industry practitioners to seek collaboration opportunities, and identify the state-of-art technologies, which are vital to the software engineering community.
Topics of Interests
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Safety, Security, Privacy, and Risk Management
- Dependability and Reliability
- Fault Tolerance and Availability
- Metrics and Measurement
- Architecture, Framework, and Design Patterns
- Requirements Engineering
- Process, Standards, and Project Management
- Maintenance and Reverse Engineering
- Quality Assurance and Management
- Verification, Validation, Testing, and Analysis
- Formal Methods and Theories
- Component-Based Development and Reuse
- Empirical Studies, Benchmarking, and Industrial Best Practices
- Applications and Tools
- Pervasive, Ubiquitous, Service-Oriented Computing
- Collaborative, Distributed, Embedded, Real-Time, High Performance, Highly Dependable, Intelligent, Multimedia Systems
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 camera-ready version which takes into account the review comments. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM and also available online through the ACM Digital Library.
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.
Note: Full papers are limited to 6 pages with the option for up to 2 additional pages at cost (US$80 per page) and Posters are limited to 2 pages with the option for up to 1 additional page at cost (US$80).
Student Research Abstracts Competition
Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (minimum of 2-page and maximum of 4-page) following the instructions published at SAC 2014 website. Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed.
