Conference Call for Papers


Special Track on Databases and Big Data Management (DBDM)


March 22-26, 2021

Gwangju, Korea

1. SAC 2021

In the last thirty five years, ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has been a primary and international forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineering, and other computer related professionals to gather, interact, present, and disseminate their research and development work. ACM SAC has been sponsored by the Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and SIGAPP’s mission is to further the interests of the computing professionals engaged in the development of new computing techniques and applications areas and the transfer of computing technology to new problem domains.

SAC 2021 will be held on March 22-26, 2021. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM and will be also available online through ACM’s Digital Library. For additional information, please visit the above official ACM SAC 2021 web site.

2. Special Track on Databases and Big Data Management (DBDM)

For many years, the Databases and Big Data Management track (former DTTA track) has been one of the important parts of the ACM SAC conference. To support ACM SAC, a special track on Databases and Big Data Management will be held again in SAC 2021. The DBDM track will be a forum for database scholars, big data researchers and practitioners, research scientists, engineers, and practitioners throughout the world to share their theoretical results, technical ideas, and exploratory experiences relating to implementation and applications. You are invited to submit technical papers to the DBDM track of SAC 2021. The major topics of interest for the track include, but not necessarily limited to:

4. Guidelines for Paper 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 This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of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 double-blind review process by at least three referees for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. All papers must be submitted electronically in the format of Adobe PDF and Postscript (preferably) or MS Word. Please, upload your papers electronically to the website:

Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the paper body. Any self-reference should be in the third person. The paper length is 8 pages + 2 pages at extra charge (max of 10 pages). The program committee may reject papers that exceed this length on the grounds of length alone. In addition, for each submitted paper, a separated cover page (preferably in MS Word or plain ASCII) should be sent to the email address:

including the paper title, abstract, list of key words, and list of authors with full names and postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses. One of the authors must be designated as the primary contact point to receive the notification at the time of the paper submission.

If your submitted manuscript gets accepted by ACM SAC 2021, the final camera-ready copy must follow the template provided ACM SAC 2021.The template can be downloaded from the URL:

At least one of the authors of the accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper, and the final camera-ready copies of accepted papers must fit within eight (8) two-column pages, with the option to add two pages at an additional charge. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2021 proceedings.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster 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.

A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will also be published as extended three (3) two-column pages abstracts in the ACM SAC 2021 proceedings (with the option to add an additional page at an additional charge). Please note that a paper cannot be submitted to more than one track.

8. Call for Student Research Abstracts

Research Abstracts:

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original un-published and in-progress research work in areas of experimental computing and application development related to SAC 2021 Tracks. The Student Research Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with researcher and practitioners in their areas of interest.

All research abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners with expertise in the track focus area to which they are submitted. Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster presentations of their work and compete for three top wining places. The SRC committee will evaluate and select First, Second, and Third place winners. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP recognition certificates during the conference banquet dinner. Authors of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student Travel Award program for support.


Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts (length is 3 pages + 1 page at extra charge (max of 4 pages)) of their original un-published and in-progress research work following the instructions published at SAC 2021 website. The submissions must address research work related to a SAC track, with emphasis on the innovation behind the research idea, including the problem being investigated, the proposed approach and research methodology, and sample preliminary results of the work. In addition, the abstract should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the approach, and applicability of anticipated results to real-world problems. All abstracts must be submitted thought the START Submission system. Submitting the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed. Please upload your paper electronically to:

For further information regarding the SRC program, please contact the Program Coordinator: Hisham Haddad at
