Call For Papers


ACM 9th Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng),
Munich, Germany, 15-18 September 2009

Web site:

Document engineering is the computer science discipline that investigates systems for documents in any form and in all media. It is concerned with principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering ( is an annual meeting of researchers active in document engineering.

DocEng 2009 is the ninth edition, after previous anual meetings at São Paulo (Brazil), Winnipeg (Canada), Amsterdam (NL), Bristol (UK), Milwaukee-WI (USA), Grenoble (France), McLean-VA (USA) and Atlanta-GA (USA). All DocEng Proceedings are available at the ACM Digital Library (

Sponsorship: ACM SIGWEB, ACM SIGDOC, Universität der Bundeswehr München, HP, Xerox Research Centre Europe

* Document categorization and classification
* Document internationalization
* Integrating documents with other digital artifacts
* Document engineering life cycle and processes
* Document workflow and cooperation
* Document engineering in the large
* Document storage, indexing, and retrieval
* Automatically generated documents
* Adaptive documents
* Performance of document systems
* Markup languages (SGML, XML)
* Style sheet systems and languages (CSS, XSL, DSSSL)
* Structured multimedia (MPEG-4, SMIL, MHEG, NCL)
* Metadata (MPEG-7, RDF)
* Document database systems and query languages
* Digital libraries
* Long term preservation of documents
* Optical character recognition
* Document retrodigitalization
* Type representations (Adobe Type 1, Truetype, OpenType)
* Page description languages (PostScript, PDF)
* Electronic books (E-books) and digital paper
* Applications of constraint systems for document engineering
* Document transformation (XSLT, XQuery)
* Document services on wireless networks (WAP)
* Document linking standards (XLink, XPath, XPointer)
* Document APIs (SAX, DOM)


DocEng 2009 will include both long and short papers, posters, demonstrations of working or prototype systems, and special working sessions. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process with 3 reviewers considering the Originality of work, the Quality of research or analysis of experience, the Relevance to document engineering, and Quality of presentation of ideas.

Full Papers

Full papers should describe complete works of original research. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum, with up to 10 pages length. Full paper presentations will be 30 minutes in length.

Short papers

Short papers provide an opportunity to report on research in progress, to present novel positions on document engineering, or to demonstrate exciting new systems. Authors may submit short papers (up to 4 pages in length). Short paper presentations will be 15 minutes in length.


DocEng 2009 seeks public demonstrations of novel systems, to be presented to the conference as a whole during breaks between paper sessions. Prospective demonstrators should submit a two-page summary of the system to be demonstrated. Demonstration proposals will undergo a rigorous review process and summaries of accepted demonstrations will be published in the conference proceedings. At the conference, demonstrators will give 10-minute presentations to the assembled conferees during breaks and a demonstration session is also planned.
Working Sessions/Workshops

Potential organizers are invited to submit working session/workshop proposals. The session should bring together a variety of expert voices on a topic of considerable interest. The topic may be interesting because it is controversial, because it is of great importance to society or to the field, or because it leads us to think about future directions for document engineering. The proposal may be up to two pages in length. The proposal should describe the topic of the session and why it will be interesting to the symposium's participants. It should also list the proposed facilitators, briefly describing their expertise, and should note whether any facilitator's participation is tentative. (Note: facilitators are expected to register for the symposium.)

One author per paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the paper if accepted for publication.

Submission Process

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at Papers cannot exceed 10 pages in length. For your contributions, use the DocEng 2009 login page at
