Submission Procedures

DocEng is a single track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. At least one author for each paper and all workshop organizers and presenters must register.

Submission Types

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

  • Full Papers describing complete works of research (up to 10 pages).
  • Short Papers / Posters / Demos reporting on research in progress or novel challenges or visions (up to 4 pages). Short papers may be assigned to oral, poster, or demo presentation.
  • Workshop Proposals describing working sessions of interest to document engineering researchers or practitioners (up to 4 pages).

Papers must be submitted to the Easy Chair site located at: and must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings format

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. Authors may submit either a full paper or a short paper on a given topic. In some cases, reviewers may reject the full paper, but invite the authors to resubmit as a short paper. Unless the reviewers have specifically invited such a resubmission, full paper submissions that have been rejected will not be accepted as short papers. Where reviewers invite a resubmission, authors will be allowed one extra week beyond the stated short paper deadline to prepare and submit the shortened version of their original submission. The resubmitted paper will then be considered along with all the other short paper submissions.

All full papers are eligible to win the ACM SIGWEB DocEng Best Paper Award for 2012.
