Original papers addressing any of the listed topics of interest (or related topics) will be considered. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind review process by at least three referees. Accepted papers will be included in the ACM SAC 2024 proceedings and published in the ACM digital library, being indexed by Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge and ScopusTop-quality papers will be possibly invited after the conference for submission, in extended form, to a special issue of a ISI indexed journal.

Paper size is limited to 8 pages. A maximum of 2 additional pages may be included for an additional fee. The reviews will be blind: authors’ names and affiliations must not appear in the paper, self-citations should be in the third person, and authors must avoid disclosing their identity by any means. Submitted papers must be formatted using the ACM SIG format (see the information in the bottom of this page).

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC must present in person the paper. This is a requirement for the paper to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (maximum 4 pages) to the Student Research Competition (SRC), following the instructions published at SAC 2024 website. Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster presentations of their work and compete for three top-winning places. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet. Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for support.
