CFP: Deadline approaching- ACM SAC 2009 - Data Streams Track


ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

Data Streams Track

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


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

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.

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 at

Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review
process by at least three referees.
