DocEng 2014 : ACM Symposium on Document Engineering
Conference Series : Document Engineering
Call For Papers
Documents are communication artifacts in any form and in any media; they can be simple or compound, static or time-varying, private or open. Document collections increasingly underpin research, education, commerce, entertainment – the full range of human activity. Document engineering covers both the innovative use of documents and document collections in real-world applications and the study of principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these.
You are invited to submit original papers to the 14th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2014), to be held at the Hewlett-Packard site in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications. DocEng is sponsored by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. Proceedings are available through the ACM Digital Library.
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.
Authors are invited to submit original work in one of the following forms:
Full papers describe complete works of research (up to 10 pages).
Short papers describing smaller complete works of research or novel challenges or visions (up to 4 pages).
Application notes describing systems or tools of interest to the DocEng community (up to 4 pages).
Posters reporting on research in progress (up to 2 pages).
Workshop/tutorial proposals: Tutorials are by a domain expert and introduce a current topic of interest to symposium attendees while workshops provide an informal setting in which to develop vision and exchange ideas in a specialized field of interest -- more information here.
All accepted papers in all above categories will be included in the DocEng proceedings and be published in the ACM Digital Library. Submissions will be through EasyChair and should adhere to the ACM SIG Proceedings format.
