Symposium on Document

Call for Submissions   click on icon for full PDF

Documents are one of the centerpieces of globally interconnected systems that store information drawn from many media and deliver that information as required by users.  A document may be stored in final presentation form or may be generated on-the-fly, undergoing substantial transformations in the process.  Documents may include extensive hyperlinks, thereby permitting virtual documents, and also making available structured collections of information on which to anchor automated reasoning, such as promoted through the Semantic Web. Furthermore, document technologies like XML are having a profound impact on data modeling, in part because of the way these technologies bridge and integrate a variety of paradigms.

The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering is an international academic conference devoted to the dissemination of research on models, tools and processes
that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. DocEng 2005, the
fifth annual meeting, seeks high-quality, original papers and panels that address the theory, design, development, and evaluation of computer systems that support the creation, analysis, distribution and, interaction with documents in any medium.  The Symposium will be held at Hewlett-Packards Bristol (UK) Research Centre from November 2-4, 2005.


Topics and technologies relevant to the symposium include (but are not limited to):

Document standards, models, representation languages
Document authoring tools and systems
Document presentation (typography, formatting, layout)
Document synchronization and temporal aspects
Document structure and content analysis
Document categorization and classification
