ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

April 13 - 17, 2015, Salamanca, Spain

Data Mining Track

We are pleased to solicit original, unpublished and novel papers for publication and presentation in the 2015 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) Track on Data Mining.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, in addition to all areas in traditional data mining, emphasis and special considerations will be given to papers addressing issues in declarative data mining, intelligent querying and associated issues such as optimisation, indexing, query processing, languages and constraints. We also encourage submission in the area of data preprocessing such as data cleaning, discretization and sampling, as well as machine learning such as statistical approaches to concept learning, learning by cases, statistical inference and model parameter estimation. 2015 ACM SAC Data Mining Track will be held at Salamanca, Spain from April 13-17, 2015.

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 2015 ACM SAC Data Mining Track is the fifteenth such event in the 29 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 2015 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and is presented in cooperation with other ACM Special Interest Groups.

All enquiries and questions should be directed to the Track Chairs. Additional details are available on the track home page at

Paper Submission and Publication:

Original and unpublished papers are solicited for this track. The file format should be in PDF. 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 double blind review. Only the title should be shown at the first page without the author's information. Papers must be formatted according to the template which is available at the SAC 2015 website at

Paper size is limited to 6 pages according to the above mentioned template, being allowed a maximum of 2 extra pages at the additional cost of 80 USD per extra page. A few key words should be provided. A paper cannot be sent to more than one track. Original manuscripts should be submitted in electronic format through the START web site:

All papers will be fully refereed and undergo a double blind review process by at least three referees. The conference proceedings will be published by ACM.

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

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 proceedings.
