Call for Papers: ACM SAC'13 PL: ACM Symposium on Applied Computing, Programming Languages track


Technical Track on "Programming Languages"
March 18-22, 2013
Coimbra, Portugal

SAC '13
Over the past 27 years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has become a
primary forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around
the world to interact and present their work.
SAC 2013 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing
(SIGAPP). For additional information, please
check the SAC web page: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2013/. This
document is also available at:


A technical track on Programming Languages will be held at SAC'13. It will be
a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners throughout the world to
share technical ideas and experiences relating to implementation and
application of programming languages. Original papers and experience reports
are invited in all areas of programming languages. Major topics of interest
include but are not limited to the following:
− Compiling Techniques,
− Domain-Specific Languages,
− Formal Semantics and Syntax,
− Garbage Collection,
− Language Design and Implementation,
− Languages for Modeling,
− Model-Driven Development and Model Transformation,
− New Programming Language Ideas and Concepts,
− New Programming Paradigms,
− Practical Experiences with Programming Languages,
− Program Analysis and Verification,
− Program Generation and Transformation,
− Programming Languages from All Paradigms (Agent-Oriented, Aspect-Oriented,
Functional, Logic, Object-Oriented, etc.),
− Visual Programming Languages.


Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. Submissions should be in
electronic format, via the START site:
Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper,
and self-reference should be avoided and made
in the third person. Submitted papers will undergo a blind review process. 
Authors of accepted papers should submit an
editorial revision of their papers that fits within six two-column pages (an
extra two pages, to a total of eight pages,
may be available at a charge). Please comply with this page limitation already
at submission time. For accepted papers,
registration for the conference is required and allows accepted papers to be
printed in the conference proceedings.
For each accepted paper, an author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the
paper. This is a requirement for the paper
to be included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. A set of selected papers,
which did not get accepted as full papers,
will be accepted as poster papers and will be published as extended 2-page
abstracts in the symposium proceedings.
After the conference, selected accepted papers will be invited to a special
issue of the Computer Languages, Systems and
Structures journal

[CfP] ACM Symposium on Applied Computing: Separation of Concerns

Programming for Separation of Concerns (PSC) at ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) March 25-29, 2012 Riva del Garda (Trento) Italy

Description and Objectives

Complex systems are intrinsically expensive to develop because several concerns must be addressed simultaneously. Once the development phase is over, these systems are often hard to reuse and evolve because their concerns are intertwined and making apparently small changes force programmers to modify many parts. Moreover, legacy systems are difficult to evolve due to additional problems, including: lack of a well defined architecture, use of several programming languages and paradigms, etc.

Separation of concerns (SoC) techniques such as computational reflection, aspect-oriented programming and subject-oriented programming have been successfully employed to produce systems whose concerns are well separated, thereby facilitating reuse and evolution of system components or systems as a whole. However, a criticism of techniques such as computational reflection is that they may bring about degraded performance compared with conventional software engineering techniques. Besides, it is difficult to precisely evaluate the degree of flexibility for reuse and evolution of systems provided by the adoption of these SoC techniques. Other serious issues come to mind, such as: is the use of these techniques double-edged? Can these systems suffer a ripple effect, whereby a small change in some part has unexpected and potentially dangerous effects on the whole?

The Programming for Separation of Concerns (PSC) track at the 2012 Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) aims to bring together researchers to share experiences in using SoC techniques, and explore the practical problems of existing tools, environments, etc. The track will address questions like: Can performance degradation be limited? Are unexpected changes dealt with by reflective or aspect-oriented systems? Is there any experience of long term evolution that shows a higher degree of flexibility of systems developed with such techniques? How such techniques cope with architectural erosion? Are these techniques helpful to deal with evolution of legacy systems?


Authors are invited to submit original papers. Submissions are encouraged, but not limited, to the following topics:

  • Software architectures
  • Configuration management systems
  • Software reuse and evolution
  • Performance issues for metalevel and aspect oriented systems
  • Software engineering tools
  • Consistency, integrity and security
  • Generative approaches
  • Experiences in using reflection, composition filters, aspect- and subject- orientation
  • Evolution of legacy systems
  • Reflective and aspect oriented middleware for distributed systems
  • Modelling of SoC techniques to allow predictable outcomes from their use
  • Formal methods for metalevel systems

Paper Submission

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 tracks is not acceptable.

Papers can be submitted in electronic format via the SAC website (www.softconf.com/c/sac2012/) within 31 August 2011. Please make sure that the authors name and affiliation do not appear on the submitted paper.

Peer groups with expertise in the track focus area will blindly review submissions to the track. At least one author of the accepted paper should register and participate in the PSC track. Accepted papers will be published in the annual conference ACM proceedings.

The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using the ACM format (guidelines will be given on the SAC website). The maximum number of pages allowed for the final papers is six (6), with the option, at additional cost, to add two (2) more pages.

A set of papers submitted to the PSC track and not accepted as full papers will be selected as poster papers and published in the ACM proceedings as 2-page papers, with the option, at additional cost, to add one (1) more page.
