Submission Types

DocEng2010 will include both long and short papers, posters, demonstrations of working or prototype systems, and special working sessions. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process with a minimum of 3 reviews considering the originality of work, the quality of research or analysis of experience, the relevance to document engineering, and quality of presentation of ideas.

Full Papers

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 Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered in another forum, up to 10 pages length.

Short Papers / Posters

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


DocEng2010 seeks public demonstrations of novel systems, to be presented to the conference as a whole during breaks between paper sessions. Prospective demonstrators should submit a two-page summary of the system to be demonstrated. Demonstration proposals will undergo a rigorous review process and summaries of accepted demonstrations will be published in the conference proceedings.

Working Sessions / Workshops

Potential organizers are invited to submit working session/workshop proposals. The session should bring together a variety of expert voices on a topic of considerable interest. 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 may be up to two pages in length. 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 facilitators, briefly describing their expertise, and should note whether any facilitator's participation is tentative. (Note: facilitators are expected to register for the symposium.)


Instructions for Formatting a Paper

All papers must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings format.

  • Full papers must not exceed 10 pages in length.
  • Short papers / poster papers must not exceed 4 pages in length.
  • Demonstrator descriptions must not exceed 2 pages in length.

Authors should use the following ACM templates to prepare their papers:

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). The submission system can be reached at:

Submissions are managed by EasyChair. To log in to EasyChair you need an account. You may already have an EasyChair account if you submitted to DocEng2009 or other conferences using the system. If not, you can easily create an account.


Reviewing Process

Papers will be selected for presentation and publication in the proceedings by the Program Chairs on the basis of three blind reviews. All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings and will be available in the ACM Digital Library.

At least one author for each accepted paper must register for the symposium by the final camera-ready copy deadline 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.
