Join us in Paris for the
12th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering Telecom ParisTech, Paris France,
Sept. 4-7, 2012 < >

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 underpin research, education, commerce, entertainment - a full
range of human activity. Document engineering encompasses the study of
principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage,
maintain, share, and access documents and document collections.

You are invited to submit original papers to the 12th ACM Symposium on
Document Engineering (DocEng 2012). Attendees at this international forum
have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and the full
breadth of document types and applications. DocEng is sponsored by ACM by
means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. Proceedings are available
through the ACM Digital Library.

Important Dates:

* Apr 06, 2012 Full Paper Abstracts due 
* Apr 13, 2012 Full Papers due 
* May 18, 2012 Short Paper Abstracts due 
* May 25, 2012 Short Papers due 

Topics relevant to the symposium include (but are not limited to):

Document Analysis:
Structure and representation analysis (structure, layout, OCR)
Linguistic and Semantic (content) analysis, categorization, classification

Modeling and representation:
- Hypertexts/hypermedia, distributed documents, blogs, wikis 
- Linking techniques and standards, robust linking, integration with other
digital artifacts 
- Document Representations - interchange standards (ODF, PDF, TEI),
metadata (RDF, MPEG-7), markup languages (SGML, XML), style
sheets (CSS, XSL), type representation, multimedia (incl. HTML-5, 
MPEG, SMIL, SVG), temporal aspects, e-book standards (ePub) 

Collections, Systems, and Management:
- Collections databases and repositories, storage, indexing, retrieval, 
versions and variants, deduplication 
- Enterprise Content Management - models and standards (CMIS), scale and 
performance, platforms and applications 
- Digital libraries and archives, preservation systems 
- Document System Components - Security, APIs (SAX, DOM), versioning,
- Document Systems and Workflow, curation and annotation, cooperation,
integration and interaction between human and automated processes,
engineering life cycle 

Generation, Manipulation, and Presentation:
- Document authoring tools and systems 
- Document presentation (typography, formatting, layout) 
- Automatically generated documents, automated layout and composition,
variable data printing 
- Adaptive Documents 
- Mobile platforms and documents 
- Document transformation (XSLT, XQuery) and rich-web-client models 
(jQuery, DOJO) 

- Document internationalization, multilingual representations 
- Multi-lingual and cross-lingual indexing and search
