ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has gathered scientists from
different areas of computing over the last thirty years. The forum represents an
opportunity to interact with different communities sharing an interest in
applied computing.

SAC 2019 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing
(SIGAPP), and will be hosted by the University of Cyprus, Limassol, Cyprus.

Software Verification and Testing Track

The Software Verification and Testing track aims at contributing to the
challenge of improving the usability of formal methods in software
engineering. The track covers areas such as formal methods for verification and
testing, based on theorem proving, model checking, static analysis, and run-time
verification. We invite authors to submit new results in formal verification and
testing, as well as development of technologies to improve the usability of
formal methods in software engineering. Also are welcome detailed descriptions
of applications of mechanical verification to large scale software. Possible
topics include, but are not limited to:

* model checking
* theorem proving
* correct by construction development
* model-based testing
* software testing
* symbolic execution
* static and dynamic analysis
* abstract interpretation
* analysis methods for dependable systems
* software certification and proof carrying code
* fault diagnosis and debugging
* verification and validation of large scale software systems
* real world applications and case studies applying software testing
and verification
* benchmarks and data sets for software testing and verification

Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. 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 paper will undergo a blind
review process. Authors of accepted papers should submit an editorial revision
of their papers that fits within eight two-column pages (an extra two pages, to
a total of ten pages, may be available at a charge). Please comply to this page
limitation already at submission time. Accepted papers will be published in the
ACM SAC 2019 proceedings.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of papers, posters, or
SRC abstracts in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC
MUST present the work. This is a requirement for the presented work to be
included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers, posters,
and SRC abstracts will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital

After the Symposium we will organize a special issue of the Software Quality
Journal (SQJ) on the topics of SVT.

Student Travel Award

The SIGAPP Student Travel Award Program (STAP) was established to provide
financial support for SIGAPP student members to attend SIGAPP primary conference
(SAC) to present their accepted work. Student primary authors and co-authors are
eligible to apply for these awards. For details please see:

Student Research Competition

As previous editions, SAC 2019 organises a Student Research Competition (SRC)
Program to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas
with researchers and practitioners in their areas of interest. Guidelines and
information about the SRC program can be found at
