24 October 2016 - Notification of acceptance
4 November 2016 - Final camera ready due
6-7 December 2016 - ADCS in Melbourne, Australia

Monash University, Caulfield, Victoria, Australia

ADCS 2016 is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in
document management and information retrieval (IR) 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.


The symposium topics include (but are not restricted to) the following:
- Information retrieval theory and practice,
- Retrieval models and ranking

- Web search, multimedia retrieval, social media information retrieval
- User modelling, user studies, user interaction and history,
- Interactive information retrieval, multimodal aspects and querying
- Information retrieval system architectures and evaluation
- Document summarisation, content representation, semantic search, information extraction,
- Sentiment analysis, clustering, topic models and facets for information retreival
- Cross-language retrieval, multilingual retrieval, machine translation for information retrieval
- Natural language processing for search, summarization for information retrieval
- Evaluation methods and metrics, building test collections, experimental design
- Filtering and Recommending
- Applications such as search applied to the Internet of Things,
- Digital libraries, enterprise and intranet search,
- Desktop search and mobile information retrieval,
- Medical, Genomic or Chemical information retrieval
- Legal information retrieval, patent search

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 as part of the ICPS
collection. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF
format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available

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
double blind refereeing process, at their full published length, and
will comply with DEST criteria for fully-refereed conference papers
(category E1). Papers will be submitted using Easy Chair --

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. Authors of accepted papers will have to
sign the ACM rights management form to comply with publication in the
ACM digital library. For more information see the ACM authors page.

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.

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.


This year all conference attendees are invited (but not required) to present a
poster during a poster session. The poster session is designed to provide
feedback on research in progress and we expect it to be most useful for PhD
students to get early feedback on their research direction. Poster presenters
will be able to submit an (unrefereed) abstract of up to 2 pages describing
their research, which will be made available on the ADCS website, but not
appear in ADCS proceedings.
