Join us in Fort Collins, for the
14th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2014),

September 16-19 2014,
at Hewlett-Packard in Fort Collins, near Denver, Colorado, USA

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.

Save the date for the 11th International Web for All Conference

(W4A’14, which is to convene in Seoul, Korea, April 7-9th

Co-located with the 22th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW’14)

The 2014 theme is “The New Accessibility” – not just for people with
disabilities! Accessibility now exists on a continuum and covers a wide
spectrum of needs, thus benefiting everyone in different situations to
different degrees. This is especially true for the Web and Mobile
technologies, where devices are diverse and their use varies across
every conceivable context.

We invite your best work on improving and understanding access for
people across the accessibility continuum. Areas of interest include but
are not limited to the following: age, cognition, culture, education,
emotions, dexterity, disability, diversity, health, hearing, income,
infrastructure, language, learning, literacy, mobility, situation,
society, and vision.

Submit 10-page technical or 4-page communication papers detailing
engineering solutions and scientific insights into Web and Mobile
technologies addressing diverse user needs. Submit 2-page extended
abstracts to enter the Paciello Group Web Accessibility Challenge and
the Google Student Award competitions.

Important dates: Midnight HST
Submissions: January 13
Rebuttals: February 5-12
Decisions: February 19
Camera ready: March 3


First CFP: Hypertext 2014, Sept 1-4, Santiago, Chile

Hypertext 2014 - 25th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media
1-4 Sept. 2014, Santiago, Chile

Regular and short papers: 21 March 2014
Workshop papers, doctoral consortium papers and late-breaking results:
23 May 2014

The ACM Hypertext 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 2014 conference will focus on the role of hypertext
and hyperlink theory on the web and beyond, as a foundation for
approaches and practices in the wider community - ranging from the usage
of social media to the semantics of the 'Internet of Things'. We also
welcome submissions that focus on the linguistic aspects of hypertext
and user experience with linked entities, resources and events.

Hypertext 2014 tracks

- Links and Connections between People (chairs: Daniele Quercia, Johan
- Open Data and the Semantics of Things (chairs: Philippe Cudré-Mauroux,
Mathieu d'Aquin)
- User Experience and Adaptive Linking (chairs: Rosta Farzan, Vincent Wade)

Full paper submission: 21 March 2014.
Workshop papers, doctoral consortium papers and late-breaking results:
23 May 2014.
