Join us in Florence for the 13th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2013),

September 10-13 2013, at the University of Florence, Italy


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 13th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2013), to be held at the University of Florence. 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.

Important dates:

*  Mar 15, 2013: Workshop and tutorial proposals due
*  Mar 31, 2013: Full paper abstracts due
*  Apr  7, 2013: Full papers due
*  May 19, 2013: Short paper abstracts due
*  May 22, 2013: Short papers due

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

Modeling and Representation:

standards (ePub)
*  Metadata creation and standards, use of semantic web technologies
*  Hypertext/hypermedia, distributed documents, blogs, wikis
*  Linking techniques and standards, integration with other digital artifacts

Generation, Manipulation, and Presentation:
