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 published in the ACM SAC 2016 proceedings.

Paper size is limited to 6 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 and self-citations should be in the third person. Submitted papers must be formatted using the ACM SIG format (see the information in the bottom of this page).

For accepted papers, registration for the conference is required by at least one of the authors or a proxy, who must attend SAC and present the paper. This is a strict requirement for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings and published in the ACM digital library.

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (maximum 2 pages) to the Student Research Competition (SRC), following the instructions published at SAC 2016 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.
