Research papers and experience reports related to the above topics are solicited. Submissions must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in PDF using the ACM-SAC proceedings format using the submission link on the SAC 2022 website (https://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2022/). Authors' names and affiliations should be entered separately at the submission site and not appear in the submitted papers. Each submission will be reviewed in a DOUBLE-BLIND process according to the ACM-SAC Regulations. Student Research Competition (SRC) submissions are welcome (see SAC 2022 website for details).
Full papers are limited to 8 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. Authors have the option to include up to two (2) extra pages (paying an extra charge). Posters are limited to 3 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. Authors have the option to include only one (1) extra page (paying an extra charge). SRC Abstracts are limited to 4 pages, in camera-ready format, included in the registration fee. No extra pages allowed.
Paper selection is based on the originality, technical contribution, presentation quality, and relevance to the Knowledge and Natural Language Processing Track. Some papers may be accepted as posters.
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 digital library. No-show of registered papers and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM digital library. Authors who cannot make on-site presentations due to travel or health restrictions caused by COVID-19 will be allowed to present their materials online.
