Present CFP : 2021

The 21st ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2021) seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, management, use and evaluation of advanced systems where document and document collections play a key role. DocEng emphasizes innovative approaches to document engineering technology, use of documents and document collections in real world applications, novel principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these. In particular, DocEng 2021 seeks contributions in the area of collaborative work with documents. You are invited to submit original papers to DocEng 2021, to be held virtually in Limerick, Ireland. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications.

For the safety of participants the conference will be held virtually.

Accepted articles will be published in the DocEng 2021 proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the DocEng audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, cohesiveness, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.

Full papers: describing complete works of research (up to 10 pages).

Short papers: describing smaller complete works of research, novel challenges or visions (up to 4 pages).

Application notes: describing systems or tools (up to 4 pages).

Submissions should be prepared using the ACM format. Guidelines are availables at

Papers can be submitted online at:

Symposium Format
DocEng is a single-track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. It will be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials.
