NEW: A Special Issue in the "International Journal of System of Systems Engineering" will be dedicated to a selection of papers from the SiSoS track.


Regular Papers

The length of the regular paper is 6 pages (included in the registration) plus up to 2 pages (at extra charge) = 8 pages maximum.

Regular papers will be subjected to a blind review process. The name(s) and address(es) of the author(s) must NOT appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. Only the title should be shown on the first page without the authors' information.

Submitted papers that received good reviews but were not accepted as regular papers due to space limitation can be invited for the poster session.

The length of the poster category papers will be 3 pages (included in the registration) plus up to 1 page (at extra charge) = 4 pages maximum.


For accepted papers and posters, registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper or poster in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the paper or poster. This is a requirement for the paper or poster to be included in the ACM digital library. No-show of registered papers or posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library.

Note that, in addition to regular papers and posters, a special event for PhD students will be organized: The Student Research Competition (SRC) Program. Special Cash awards are planned for the first 3 best papers:
