- SAC 2008

For the past twenty-two years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
(SAC) has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer
scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application
developers from around the world. SAC 2008 is sponsored by the ACM
Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by
the University of Fortaleza and the Federal University of Cear\'a, in

- OOPS Track

Today's large scale software systems are typically designed and
implemented using the concepts of the object-oriented (OO) paradigm.

However, there is still a need for existing OO languages and
architectures to continuously adapt in response to demands for new
features and innovative approaches.

The basic aim of the OOPS track at the SAC 2008 is to promote and
stimulate further research on the object-oriented programming and
distributed-object paradigms.

This track will invite papers investigating the development of
extensions and enhancements to the prevalent OO languages, such as Java, C#
and C++, the formulation of innovative OO-based middleware approaches,
and the improvements to existing and well-established distributed-object
based systems.

A medium to long-term vision is also solicited, tackling general
issues about the current and future role of prevalent OO languages and
distributed architectures in Computer Science and Engineering.

The specific topics of interest for the OOPS track include, but are
not limited to, the following:

* Design and implementation of novel abstractions, constructs and
* Type systems
* Multi-paradigm features
* Language features in support of adaptability
* Aspect-oriented programming
* Component-based programming
* Meta-programming, reflection, generative programming
* Program structuring, modularity
* Distributed objects and concurrency
* Middleware
* Heterogeneity and interoperability
* Applications of distributed object computing
* Compilation techniques
* Virtual machines

Original papers and implementation reports are invited from all areas
of OO programming languages and distributed-object computing.

Particularly of interest are papers that provide
a thorough analysis covering theory, design, implementation,
applicability, performance evaluation, and comparison/integration with
existing constructs and mechanisms.

- Submission Instructions

Prospective papers should be submitted in pdf format using the
provided automated submission system available at

All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works
that are currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both
basic and applied research papers are welcome.

Hardcopy and fax submissions will not
