Authors are invited to submit original work in one of the following
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unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another
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.

to other conferences using the system. If not, you can easily create an
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.

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withdrawn from the ACM Digital Library based on the decision of the
