For the past twenty-two years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for computer scientists, computer and software engineers from around the world. The ACM SAC conference is solely sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). The 23rd Annual SAC will be held in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, between 16 and 20 March 2008 and is hosted by The University of Fortaleza (UNIFOR) and the Federal University of Ceará (UFC).

Organizational engineering aggregates multi-disciplinary concepts, methods and technology to model, develop and analyze various aspects of changing organizations. One of its major concerns is to understand the enterprise architecture and the relationships between business strategy, business processes and the business support systems in order to create and keep the alignment between these complementary domains.

The fifth edition of the Organizational Engineering (OE) track at ACM SAC will provide a space for theoretical and applied research studies on organizational engineering topics to be presented while giving an opportunity for researchers, academics and industry practitioners interested in organizational analysis and modeling, methodologies and tools to share and discuss problems, open issues and trends.


- Enterprise modeling. Models and methods for representing and analyzing business processes, enterprise structure, support systems, people, strategy, goals and informational entities.

- Methodologies and frameworks for analyzing, creating and maintaining the alignment between strategy, business processes, the business structure and the support systems.

- Process patterns and process reference modeling.

- Conceptual modeling, model analysis, verification and validation, notations and formal models.

- Business networking, intra and inter-organizational collaborations and contracts.

- Enterprise architecture frameworks.

- Enterprise integration, business integration, EAI and SOA.

- Frameworks and tools for the deployment, execution, simulation, assessment and performance analysis of enterprise models.

- Software development, evolution, testing and configuration in the perspective of enterprise modeling and alignment.


All papers must represent original and unpublished work. The same paper can only be submitted to one ACM SAC track. Accepted papers will be published in the yearly ACM SAC printed proceedings and in the ACM's Digital Library. The ACM SAC is a refereed conference. This means each paper will be blindly reviewed by at least three referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style and clarity. The acceptance rate was approximately 30% in the previous editions of this track.

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via the ACM SAC online track management system. Please do not hesitate contacting us anytime for paper content guidance, questions or problems.


- The final paper should be five pages long using the two-column ACM SIG template (around 5,000 words). Authors have the option to add up to three more pages to the paper at additional expense. The camera-ready paper can not exceed eight pages in total.

- The paper must be formatted using the two-column ACM SIG format (tighter alternate style). Document templates are available at

- To facilitate the blind review process, the authors names and contacts must not appear anywhere in the paper.

- All papers submissions must be made electronically in PDF format. Please check for more guidelines.

- Quality papers that are not accepted due to space limitations will be invited for the poster session. These will be included in the printed proceedings and ACM's Digital Library as short papers.

- Any questions should be directed to the Track Chairs via e-mail
