ADCS 2013 : Australasian Document Computing Symposium
Conference Series : Australasian Document Computing Symposium
Call For Papers
ADCS2013 is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in document management and information retrieval to meet and present their work. The symposium aims to cover all aspects of Document Computing - issues ranging from the fundamentals of document architectures and standards for markup, through storage, management, retrieval, authentication and workflow, to active and virtual documents. The symposium emphasises both commercial and academic issues by encouraging a variety of submissions.
Topics of interest
The symposium topics include (but are not restricted to) the following:
Cognitive Aspects of Documents
Document Standards (XML, SGML, etc.)
Multimedia Document Management
Multimedia Resource Discovery
Natural Language Techniques and Documents
User Studies Involving Documents
All submissions must be original work, not previously published elsewhere, and not currently submitted to any other conference or journal. Electronic copies of accepted papers will be made available through the ACM Digital Library. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. Full papers have a maximum of length of 8 pages including all references, and short papers have a maximum length of 4 pages including references. All submissions will be fully refereed using a single blind refereeing process, at their full published length, and will comply with DEST criteria for fully-refereed conference papers (category F1). Papers will be submitted using Easy Chair. See Submissions for more information.
Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the symposium to present the work. Note also that it is insufficient for an author to register and pay for the symposium to be regarded as fulfilling this obligation.
Full papers should describe new contributions or analyse research issues. Submissions should be at most eight pages long (around 4000 words); over-length submissions risk immediate rejection. Refer to the guidelines for papers for details of the required format.
Posters, short papers and industry status reports
To encourage participation by industry and to provide a place for work of a more speculative nature, ADCS invites submissions for short papers, up to a maximum of four pages (around 2000 words). A typical proposal might describe a leading-edge solution to a practical problem in document management. Short papers follow the same format as for full papers.
