CFP: ACM SAC-DS 2009 - Data Streams Track

ACM SAC-DS 2009 Call for Papers

ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

Data Streams Track 

Call for Papers 
The rapid development in information science and technology in general and
in growth complexity and volume of data in particular have introduced new
challenges for the research community. Many sources produce data
continuously. Examples include sensor networks, wireless networks,
radio frequency identification (RFID), customer click streams,
telephone records, multimedia data, scientific data, sets of retail
chain transactions, etc. These sources are called data streams.  A
data stream is an ordered sequence of instances that can be read only
once or a small number of times using limited computing and storage
capabilities. These sources of data are characterized by being
open-ended, flowing at high-speed, and generated by non stationary

We are looking for all possible contributions related to algorithms on
data streams.

Topics include (but are not restricted) to:

Data Stream Models
Data Stream Management Systems
Data Stream Query Languages
Continuous queries and Summarization from Data Streams
Sampling Data Streams
Single-Pass Algorithms
Scalable Algorithms
Change Detection Algorithms
Clustering on Data Streams
Classification and Regression on Data Streams
Association Rules on Data Streams
Feature Selection on Data Streams
Visualization Techniques for Data Streams
Evaluation of Data Streams Models
Data Stream applications
Sensor Networks
Real-Time Applications

Aug   16, 2008:  Submission of papers
Oct   11, 2008:  Notification of acceptance/rejection
Oct   25, 2008:  Camera-ready copies of accepted papers


Papers should be submitted in PDF using the SAC 2009 conference
management system:

The paper should omit authors and affiliations. Author names and
addresses must not appear in the body of the paper, self-reference
must be in the third person, attribution to the author(s) must be in
the form of "author", and bibliographical entries by the author(s)
must also be in the form of "author".

The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the body of
the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. This is
to facilitate blind review.  Only the title should be shown at the
first page without the author's information.

Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review
process by at least three referees. The conference proceedings will be
published by ACM. Hence, all accepted papers should be submitted in
ACM 2-column camera ready format for publication in the symposium
proceedings. The maximum number of pages allowed for the final papers
is 5 pages (about 4000 words), with the option (at additional expense)
to add up to three (3) more pages.  There is a set of templates to support
the required paper format for a number of document preparation systems
