CALL FOR PAPERS

Join us in Lausanne for the
15th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2015),

September 811, 2015,
at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland

———————————————————————–


The 15th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2015) seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, management, use and evaluation of advanced systems where documents and document collections play a key role.

DocEng is a leading international forum for researchers, practitioners, developers and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and to exchange techniques, tools and experiences.

DocEng emphasizes innovative approaches to document engineering technology, use of documents and document collections in real world applications, novel 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 15th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2015), to be held at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. 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.

Symposium Chair: Christine Vanoirbeek (EPFL, Switzerland)
Program Chair:   Pierre Genevès (CNRS, France)

Submissions
===========

Authors are invited to submit original work in one of the following forms:

* Full papers describing 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 (up to 4 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.

Accepted papers will be included in the DocEng proceedings and published in the ACM Digital Library.

Students presenting their work at DocEng 2015 will be eligible to apply for SIGWEB Student Travel Awards.
