First CFP – Data Streams Track – ACM SAC 2013

ACM SAC 2013
The 28th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
in Coimbra, Portugal, March 18-22, 2013.



The rapid development in information science and technology in general
and in growth complexity and volume of data in particular has
introduced new challenges for the research community. Many sources
produce data continuously. Examples include sensor networks, wireless
networks, radio frequency identification (RFID), health-care devices
and information systems, 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 distributions.

We are looking for original, unpublished work related to algorithms,
methods and applications on data streams. Topics include (but are not
restricted) to:

– Data Stream Models
– Languages for Stream Query
– Continuous Queries
– Clustering from Data Streams
– Decision Trees from Data Streams
– Association Rules from Data Streams
– Decision Rules from Data Streams
– Bayesian networks from Data Streams
– Feature Selection from Data Streams
– Visualization Techniques for Data Streams
– Incremental on-line Learning Algorithms
– Single-Pass Algorithms
– Temporal, spatial, and spatio-temporal data mining
– Scalable Algorithms
– Real-Time and Real-World Applications using Stream data
– Distributed and Social Stream Mining

1. Paper Submission: September 21, 2012
2. Author Notification: November 10, 2012
3. Camera‚Äźready copies: November 30, 2012

Papers should be submitted in PDF using the SAC 2013 conference
management system: Authors are
invited to submit original papers in all topics related to data
streams. All papers should be submitted in ACM 2-column camera ready
format for publication in the symposium proceedings. ACM SAC follows a
double blind review process. Consequently, the author(s) name(s) and
address(s) must NOT appear in the body of the submitted paper, and
self-references should be in the third person. This is to facilitate
double blind review required by ACM. All submitted papers must include
the paper identification number provided by the eCMS system when the
paper is first registered. The number must appear on the front page,
above the title of the paper. 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. The
maximum number of pages allowed for the final papers is 6 pages. There
is a set of templates to support the required paper format for a
number of document preparation systems at:

For accepted papers, registration for the conference is required and
allows the paper to be printed in the conference proceedings.
An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper. This is a
requirement for the paper to be included in the ACM Digital Library.
No-show of scheduled papers will result in excluding the papers from
the ACM Digital Library.

Graduate students seeking feedback from the scientific community on
their research ideas are invited to submit abstracts of their original
un-published and in-progress research work in areas of experimental
computing and application development related to SAC 2013 Tracks. The
Student Research Competition (SRC) program is designed to provide
graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with
researcher and practitioners in their areas of interest. All research
abstract submissions will be reviewed by researchers and practitioners
with expertise in the track focus area to which they are submitted.
Authors of selected abstracts will have the opportunity to give poster
presentations of their work and compete for three top wining places.
The SRC committee will evaluate and select First, Second, and Third
place winners. The winners will receive cash awards and SIGAPP
recognition certificates during the conference banquet dinner. Authors
of selected abstracts are eligible to apply to the SIGAPP Student
Travel Award program for support. Graduate students are invited to
submit abstracts (minimum of two pages; maximum of four pages)
of their original un-published and in-progress research work following
the instructions published at SAC 2013 website. The submissions must
address research work related to a SAC track, with emphasis on the
innovation behind the research idea, including the problem being
investigated, the proposed approach and research methodology, and
sample preliminary results of the work. In addition, the abstract
should reflect on the originality of the work, innovation of the
approach, and applicability of anticipated results to real-world
problems. All abstracts must be submitted thought the START Submission
system. Submitting the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed.
If you encounter any problems with your submission, please contact
the Program Chairs.
