*** Call for Track Proposals ***

For the past sixteen years the Symposium on Applied Computing has been
a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers
and application developers to gather, interact and present their work.
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
ACM's Digital Library. More information on SAC can be found at .

SAC is based on a flexible structure of mostly self-contained and
self-managed tracks. Over the past years it has hosted tracks on a
variety of topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Distributed
Systems, Internet Technologies, Software Engineering, etc. For SAC'02,
to be held in Spain in March of 2002, the SAC organizers solicit
proposals for hosting tracks. Perspective track chairs should submit a
less than one page description for organizing a track, which should
include at least the following items:

1) The proposed title for the track with a description of
      its aims, topics it will cover and rationale for having
      such a track in SAC. This rationale should refer to any
      related conference events that are held regularly and
      why the proposed track differs from them or complements them.
      The proposed track should not be over general but also
      not overly specialized, thus being able to attract a wide
      audience of people sharing similar interests. Proposals from
      industry are also welcomed. Despite its name, SAC also welcomes
      papers of mostly theoretical nature, provided there is clear
      practical potential in applying the results of such work.

2) A short description of the activities the track chair will
      undertake upon acceptance of the proposal, to disseminate the
      call-for-papers for his/her track, manage the review process and
      collect final materials from authors of accepted papers. (Specific
      guidelines to track chairs regarding these issues will also be

3) A short CV of the perspective track chair(s) with reference to
      research interests and publication record directly related to
      the themes of the proposed track, and any previous experience
      of involvement in the organization of similar events (in the
      interest of brevity, reference to a personal web page where such
      information can be found will be welcomed).

All proposals will be reviewed by the Conference and Program Chairs
with respect to the above criteria. The Chairs reserve the right to:
(1) accept a proposal as is, (2) recommend merging of similar
proposals with a considerable overlap in the topics addressed (in this
case the track chairs of the different proposals will be asked to form
a single chair), (3) reject a proposal.

Upon acceptance of a proposal, the track chairs will be notified of
their responsibilities in managing the affairs of their tracks, as
these are defined by SAC itself but also ACM. The Chairs reserve the
right to cancel at any time a track, if these responsibilities are not
addressed adequately by its track chair(s).

Please submit your proposal electronically and in any acceptable
readable form to:
