The Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2014 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing and is hosted by Seoul National University, Kyungpook National University, Soongsil University, and Dongguk University. The SRC Program is sponsored by Microsoft Research.
Topics of Interest
The track provides a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry to present and discuss their latest research findings on selected topics in dependable and adaptive distributed systems and services. The topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
•Dependable, Adaptive, and trustworthy Distributed Systems (DADS): E.g., massive scale, big data, scalable web applications; self-* properties and autonomous behaviour; mobility and sparse connectivity; adaptable and adaptive security; fault and intrusion tolerance; performance; context-awareness; power awareness and green computing; integration and balancing of competing attributes; cross-organizational heterogeneity.
•Architectures, architectural styles, and middleware for DADS: E.g., cloud systems and cloud-deployed applications; P2P, MANET, smartphone-based, and pervasive systems; event-based systems; publish/subscribe systems; service-oriented systems; component-based systems; control loop and MAPE pattern.
•Protocols for DADS: E.g., consensus, group communication, replication, transaction, coordination, orchestration; failure detection, containment, and recovery; dynamic (re-)configuration.
•Modeling, design, and engineering of DADS: E.g., MDA support; QoS and SLA; tool support; design patterns for DADS; abstractions and policies; quantitative approaches; run-time approaches.
•Foundations and formal methods for DADS: E.g., rigorous approaches, verification, assurance cases.
•Applications of DADS: E.g., safety critical systems; avionics and CNS (Communication, Navigation, Surveillance); VANETs (Vehicular adhoc networks); automotive systems; mission critical infrastructure; critical infrastructure protection and disaster scenarios.
•Evaluations, testing, benchmarking, and case studies of DADS.
•Holistic aspects of DADS: E.g., social, cultural, psychological, economical, managerial, and educational aspects.
