Call For Papers
THE 18TH ACM SYMPOSIUM ON DOCUMENT ENGINEERING (DOCENG 2018)
August 28-31, 2018
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
The 18th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2018) seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, management, use and evaluation of advanced systems where document and document collections play a key role. 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. In particular, the 18th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2018) seeks works involving large-scale document engineering applications of industrial relevance . You are invited to submit original papers to the 18th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2018), to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications.
abstracts due: February 1, 2018
manuscripts due: February 8. 2018
acceptance notice: March 15, 2018
SHORT PAPERS AND APPLICATIONS NOTES
manuscripts due: March 22, 2018
acceptance notice: April 25, 2018
The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the DocEng audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.
FULL PAPERS: describing complete works of research (up to 10 pages).
SHORT PAPERS: describing smaller complete works of research, novel challenges or visions (up to 4 pages).
APPLICATION NOTES/DEMOS: describing systems or tools (up to 4 pages).
DocEng is a single-track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. It will be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials.

DOCUMENT CONTENT ANALYSIS*
Structure and visual representation analysis
Linguistic and semantic (content) analysis, categorization, classification, clustering
Automated tagging, named entity disambiguation, semantic linking, automatic image captioning
OCR Error correction
SYSTEMS FOR VISUAL DOCUMENT ANALYSIS*
Historical document processing
Handwritten character recognition
Recognition of images, equations, drawings, music scores and other content in document images and layout description languages
Recovery and assessing document quality from distortions and defects such as tears or blemishes
We encourage submissions about document-centric applications such as:

Web applications and systems
WEB DOCUMENT PROCESSING AND INTERACTION
Rich web applications
Systems and algorithms for safe and efficient document processing
Scalable distributed document processing
Linked data and semantics enrichment, linking techniques and standards
Documents and privacy
Secure document workflows, policy, and access, security for mobile and printing devices
Security printing, including document identification, tagging and meta-data
Cyber-physical document workflows, especially electronic/print options, including 3D printing workflows
* Pure document image or document content analysis papers are not out of scope but authors should clarify how the contribution relates to document engineering technology, use of documents or document collections
AUTHORS TAKE NOTE
- The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
- DocEng is sponsored by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. Proceedings are available through the ACM Digital Library.
- Each DocEng paper must have at least one non-student registration for it to be presented at DocEng 2018 and be published in the DocEng 2018 Proceedings. Each workshop paper must have at least one workshop registration (of either category) to be presented at the workshop.
