Submission Procedures

Final Submission

Instructions for the final submission for DocEng 2011 papers can be found at the following location:

Submission Types

Authors are invited to submit original work in one of the following forms:

Full Papers

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 Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum.

Short Papers / Posters / Demonstrations

Short papers, up to 4 pages in length, provide an opportunity to report on research in progress, to present novel positions on document engineering, or to demonstrate exciting new systems.  Short papers may be assigned to oral, poster, or demostration presentation.

Working Sessions / Workshops

Potential organizers are invited to submit working session/workshop proposals up to 4 pages in length. The session should bring together a variety of expert voices on a topic of considerable interest to researchers or practitioners. 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 should describe the topic of the session and why it will be interesting to the symposium's participants. It should also list the proposed presenters, briefly describing their expertise, and should note whether any presenter's participation is tentative. All workshop organizers and presenters must register for the symposium.

Instructions for Formatting a Paper

All papers must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings format and fit within the page length limits.
  • Full papers must not exceed 10 pages in length.
  • Short papers must not exceed 4 pages in length.
  • Workshop proposals must not exceed 4 pages in length.
Authors should use the following ACM templates to prepare their papers:

MS Word Template Files:

LaTeX Template Files:

Authors also need to apply the ACM computing classification categories and terms in the space provided in the above template.

Submission Process

To submit a paper (any type) authors must first register an abstract (200 words maximum) using the EasyChair submission system.
  • Abstract submissions due April 8, 2011
  • Paper submissions due April 15, 2011
To log in to EasyChair you need an account. You may already have an EasyChair account if you submitted to other conferences using the system. If not, you can easily create an account.

Reviewing Process

All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process considering the originality of work, the quality of research or analysis of experience, the relevance to document engineering, and quality of presentation of ideas. Papers will be selected for presentation and publication in the proceedings by the Program Chair on the basis of three blind reviews. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings and will be available in the ACM Digital Library. All full papers are eligible to win the ACM SIGWEB DocEng Best Paper Award for 2011.
  • Acceptance notice May 27, 2011
At least one author for each accepted paper must register for the symposium by the deadline for final camera-ready copy and attend the symposium to present the paper. Papers for no-show authors may be withdrawn from the ACM Digital Library based on the decision of the symposium officials.
