Dear all,
this is a symposium that wishes to broaden its  scope to include digital
libraries, eBooks, covering underling technologies such as **annotations**
and also usability.


CFP ACM Symposium on Document Engineering, Sep 10-13 2013

You are invited to submit original papers to the 13th ACM Symposium on
Document Engineering (DocEng 2013), to be held at the University of
Florence. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span
all aspects of document engineering and applications. DocEng is sponsored
by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. Proceedings are
available through the ACM Digital Library.

Symposium format
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

Paper submission
Authors are invited to submit original work in one of the following forms:
* Full papers describe complete works of research: due April 7, 2013
* Short papers/posters/demos report on research in progress, novel
challenges, visions or systems: due May 22, 2013
* Workshop/tutorial proposals: Friday, March 15, 2013

Scope of symposium
Documents are communication artifacts in any form and in any media; they
can be simple or compound, static or time-varying, private or open.
Document collections increasingly underpin research, education, commerce,
entertainment  the full range of human activity. Document engineering
covers both the innovative use of documents and document collections in
real-world applications and the study of principles, tools and processes
that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and
productively use these. Topics relevant to the symposium include (but are
not limited to):

Modeling and Representation:
    Document representation and standards including interchange standards,
markup languages (inc. SGML), style  sheets, type representation,
multimedia (incl. HTML-5,  MPEG, SMIL, SVG), eBook standards (ePub)
    Metadata creation and standards, use of semantic web technologies
    Hypertext/hypermedia, distributed documents, blogs, wikis
    Linking techniques and standards, integration with other digital

Generation, Manipulation, and Presentation:
    Document authoring tools and systems
    Document presentation (typography, formatting, layout) algorithms and
systems (TeX, browsers)
    Automatically generated documents, automated layout and composition,
variable data printing
    Adaptive, responsive documents, content customization
    Mobile platforms and documents
    Document transformation and rich-web-client models

Collections, Systems, and Management:
    Collections databases and repositories, storage, indexing, retrieval,
 versioning, deduplication
    Enterprise content management: models and standards (CMIS), scale and
performance, platforms and applications
    Digital libraries and archives, preservation systems
    Document system components: security, APIs (SAX, DOM), versioning,
    Document systems and workflows

Document Analysis:
    Structure and representation analysis (layout, OCR, visual analysis)
    Linguistic and semantic (content) analysis, categorization,

    Document internationalization, multilingual representations
    Multi-lingual and cross-lingual indexing and search

User Experience:
    Navigation, search
    Usability, accessibility, readability and aesthetics
    Collaborative authoring and editing, curation and annotation
    Workflows, integration and interaction between human and automated

    Digital humanities, digital preservation and archiving
    eBooks and digital publishing
    and all other application areas

Students presenting their work at DocEng 2013 will be eligible to apply for
SIGWEB Student Travel Awards.  More information will follow in due course.
