The 23rd Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil, March 16 - 20, 2008.

Data Streams Track

Call for Papers
For the past twenty years, the ACM 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 2008 is sponsored by the ACM Special
Interest Group on Applied Computing, and is hosted by the the
University of Fortaleza (UNIFOR) and the Federal University of Ceara

Paper Paper Submission: 8 September, 2007
Paper Author Notification: 16 October, 2007
Paper camera-ready Copy: 30 October, 2007

We are looking for all possible contributions related to incremental
learning algorithms on data streams. Topics include (but are not
restricted to:

Data Stream Models
Data Stream Management Systems
Continuous queries, Summarization, Sampling, etc
Change Detection Algorithms
Clustering from Data Streams
Classification from Data Streams
Sequential Patterns from Data Streams
Feature Selection from Data Streams
Visualization Techniques for Data Streams
Data Stream applications
Sensor Networks

Papers should be submitted in PDF using the SAC 2008 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".

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 at
