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.

*  Mar 15, 2013: Workshop and tutorial proposals due
*  Mar 31, 2013: Full paper abstracts due

24th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media
May 1-3, 2013
Palais des Congres, Paris, France

Abstract submission: December 13, 2012
Full and Short Paper Submission: December 18, 2012

The ACM Hypertext and Social Media conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications. The ACM Hypertext and Social Media 2013 conference will focus on exploring, studying and shaping relationships between three important dimensions of links in hypertextual systems and the World
Wide Web: people, data, and documents.

In 2013, HYPERTEXT is taking place as part of the First ACM European Computing Research Congress (ECRC 2013) which is co-located with the ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2013).

\___  Conference tracks and track co-chairs:

Track 1: Linking people: Social Media
- Martin Atzmueller, University of Kassel, Germany
- Kristina Lerman, University of Southern California, USA

Track 2: Linking data: semantic data
- Peter Mika, Yahoo! Research, Barcelona, Spain
- Elena Simperl, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany

Track 3: Linking documents: adaptive hypertext and narrative connections
- Paul de Bra, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands
- David Millard, Southampton University, UK

\___  Important Dates and Submission:

Abstract deadline: December 13, 2012
Full and short paper submission deadline: December 18, 2012
Notification: January 30, 2013
Camera-ready version due: February 17, 2013

In modern hypertext and web-based information systems the presented
hypertext structure (information pages, connected with links) is increasingly
partially or completely generated, processed, filtered, adjusted or
personalised before it reaches its users. The dynamic nature and separation
of content and links was initiated by open hypermedia research, the
introduction of personalization was by facilitated by the adaptive hypermedia
community. The computational or adaptive aspects are consistently being
found in narrative, (adaptive) story-telling, technology-enhanced learning,
e-culture, recommender systems and business information systems.

The existence of the conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and
Personalization (UMAP) and of the Adaptive Hypermedia track at the ACM
Hypertext Conference illustrate the active, diverse nature of this research
community and the widespread attention for personalization and
adaptation in different types of systems and domains. Although we explicitly
invite papers that build upon and extend results presented at ACM Hypertext
and UMAP, the special issue is open to other contributions as well, e.g. from
the Recommender Systems and the Document Engineering and other
