                    2001 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2001)

      Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

SAC 2001
Over the past fifteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists and
application developers from around the world to interact and present
their work. SAC 2001 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Groups
on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and Biomedical Computing (SIGBIO). SAC
2001 is hosted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of
experimental computing and application development for the technical
sessions. There will be a number of special tracks on such issues as
Programming Languages, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Mobile
Computing, Multimedia and Visualization, etc.

Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track
A special track on coordination models, languages and applications
will be held at SAC 2001. The term "coordination" here is used in a
rather broad sense covering traditional models and languages (e.g.
ones based on the Shared Dataspace, CHAM and IWIM metaphors) but also
other related formalisms and concepts such as configuration and
architectural description frameworks, systems modeling abstractions
and languages, programming skeletons, social aspects of multi-agent
systems, etc.

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

      * Novel models, languages, programming and implementation techniques.
      * Relationship with other computational models such as object
          oriented, declarative (functional, logic, constraint) programming
          or extensions of them with coordination capabilities.
      * Applications (especially where the industry is involved).
      * Theoretical aspects (semantics, reasoning, verification).
      * Software architectures and software engineering techniques.
      * Configuration and Architecture Description Languages.
      * Middleware platforms (e.g. CORBA).
      * All aspects related to the modeling of Information Systems
          (groupware, Internet and the Web, workflow management, CSCW).
      * Coordination of multi-agent systems (models, technologies and
          applications), including mobile and intelligent agents.
      * Coordination technologies and systems.

Guidelines for Submission
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will
be considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1)
original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing
applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government,
education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology
transfer to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully
refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three
referees. The accepted papers in all categories will be published in
the ACM SAC 2001 proceedings.

Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

      * Submit your paper electronically in either PDF or postscript format
          to the Track Program Chair of the SAC 2001 Special Track on
          Coordination Models, Languages and Applications (whose address is
          shown above). Neither hardcopy nor fax submissions will 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 the 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 e-mail, telephone, and fax) to which
          correspondence should be sent.

      * All submissions must be received by September 1, 2000.

Over the last three years, the Special Track on Coordination Models,
Languages and Applications has built its success also over the work of
many volunteer referees. Anyone wishing to review papers for this
special track should contact the Track Program Chair at the address
shown above.
