ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
Special Track on Data Mining
Honolulu, Hawaii
March 8-12, 2009


We are pleased to solicit original, unpublished and novel papers for
publication and presentation in the 2009 ACM Symposium on Applied
Computing (SAC) Track on Data Mining. Articles describing novel ideas
and applications in all areas of data mining are of interest. This
year, emphasis and special considerations will be given to papers
addressing issues in scientific data exploration and mining. 2009 ACM
SAC Data Mining Track will be held at Honolulu, Hawaii, USA from March
8-12, 2009.

ACM SAC Data Mining has a successful history of accepting quality
papers and offering a stimulating platform for the exchange of ideas
and dissiminating cutting edge research to the community. The 2009 ACM
SAC Data Mining Track is the eighth such event in the 23 years of ACM
SAC tradition.

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing is recognized as a primary
forum for applied computer scientists and application developers from
around the world to interact and present their work. SAC 2009 is
sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing
(SIGAPP) and is presented in cooperation with other ACM Special
Interest Groups. For more information on ACM SAC 2009, please visit

Paper Registration and Submission Guidelines:

Authors must register their intent to submit a paper using the
conference management system, eCMS system at http://sac.cs.iupui.edu/SAC2009/.
Authors will use this system for formal paper submission and other
correspondence. All papers should represent original and previously
unpublished work that are currently not under review in any conference
or journal. Both basic and applied research papers are welcome.

The submitted papers should follow the template found at
http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009/downloads09.htm. Submitted
papers must not be more than 8 pages long in this template. Papers
that fail to comply with length limitations risk rejection. Although
the submitted version may be of 8 pages long, the final version cannot
be more that 5 pages long without any extra page fee. Authors of
accepted papers may purchase upto 3 extra pages (a total of 8 pages
per paper) at the rate of $80 (US) per page.

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.

All enquiries and questions should be directed to the Track Chairs.
Additional details are available on the track home page at
http://database.cs.wayne.edu/sac2009/ and at the conference home page
at http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2009.

Paper Publication:

All papers 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 final version of the paper should not be more than 5
pages long.

Poster Publication of Selected Papers:

A set of selected papers will be accepted as poster papers by
invitation only and will be published as short papers in the symposium
