We are pleased to announce that the 10th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng2010) will be held in Manchester, UK during September 21-24, 2010. DocEng2010 will build on the tradition of successful editions previously held around the world: in Munich (2009), St. Paulo (2008), Winnipeg (2007), Amsterdam (2006), Bristol (2005), Milwaukee (2004), Grenoble (2003), McLean (2002), and Atlanta (2001).
The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering provides an annual international forum for presentations and discussions on principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. It is sponsored by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group. All DocEng Proceedings are available through the ACM Digital Library.
Researchers in both Academia and Industry are invited to submit papers and to attend DocEng2010.
Topics & Technologies:
• Document representations – standards(ODF, PDF), models, type representation, metadata (MPEG-7, RDF), style sheets (CSS, XSL), markup languages (SGML, XML), multimedia (MPEG-4, SMIL, MHEG, NCL), multilingual representations, temporal aspects • Document manipulation – document transformation (XSLT, XQuery), adaptive documents, document presentation (typography, formatting, layout) • Document systems - workflow, cooperation, web services, social networking, engineering life cycle • Document system components - security, APIs (SAX, DOM), synchronization, system performance • Document collections - databases: storage indexing, retrieval, content management systems, e-books • Document linking - techniques (e.g. XLink, Xpointer), blogs, wikis, integration with other digital artefacts • Document generation - authoring tools and systems, variable data printing, automatically generated documents • Document analysis - structure, layout and content analysis, categorization, classification, character recognition

DocEng 2010 is a single track conference attended by academic and industrial researchers who are all well acquainted by the end of the conference. Authors and working session members and facilitators are expected to register for the symposium.
Authors are invited to submit original work in the form of:
• Full Papers describing complete works of research (up to 10 pages). • Short Papers / Posters reporting on research in progress or novel positions on document engineering (up to 4 pages). Short papers may be assigned to oral or poster presentation. • Demonstrations. A two-page summary of the system to be demonstrated must be submitted for review. Summaries of accepted demonstrations will be published in the conference proceedings. • Working Sessions / Workshops. Potential organizers are invited to submit proposals for a working session or workshop.
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.
DocEng2010 will be held in Manchester, in the United Kingdom. The Greater Manchester metropolitan area is the second largest economic region in England offering a wide variety of opportunities to explore the region’s history and vibrant cultural scene. Excellent transportation links make Manchester easy to reach and an ideal base for excursions to the Lake District, the Peak District, Chester, York, Liverpool and North Wales. London is a two-hour train ride away.
The symposium will take place at the Chancellors Hotel set in five acres of gardens within very easy reach of Manchester city centre by public transport (3 miles) and the airport – MAN (5 miles). On-site accommodation is available for participants.
Support for Students
Students presenting their work at DocEng2010 will be eligible to apply for SIGWEB Student Travel Awards. Application forms and instructions are available on the website.
