Call for Papers

Documents are one of the centerpieces of globally interconnected systems that store information drawn from many media and deliver that information as required by users. A document may be stored in final presentation form or may be generated on-the-fly, undergoing substantial transformations in the process. Documents may include extensive hyperlinks, thereby permitting virtual documents, and also making available structured collections of information on which to anchor automated reasoning, such as promoted through the Semantic Web. Furthermore, document technologies like XML are having a profound impact on data modeling, in part because of the way these technologies bridge and integrate a variety of paradigms. More recently, the power of customizable and variable-data document creation has created the need for the engineering of large populations of related, but individually unique, documents.

The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering is an international academic conference devoted to the dissemination of research on models, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. DocEng 2007, the seventh annual meeting, seeks high-quality, original papers, posters, demonstrations and working sessions that address the theory, design, development, and evaluation of computer systems that support the creation, analysis, distribution of and interaction with documents in any medium. The Symposium will be held at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg from August 28-31, 2007.

Topics and technologies relevant to the symposium include (but are not limited to):

Document standards, models, representation languages Document authoring tools and systems
Document presentation (typography, formatting, layout) Document synchronization and temporal aspects
Document structure and content analysis Document categorization and classification
Document internationalization Integrating documents with other digital artifacts
Document engineering life cycle and processes Document workflow and cooperation
Document engineering in the large Document storage, indexing, and retrieval
Automatically generated documents Adaptive documents
Performance of document systems Markup meta-languages (e.g. SGML, XML)
Style sheet systems and languages (e.g. CSS, XSL, DSSSL) Structured multimedia (e.g. MPEG-4, SMIL, MHEG, HyTime)
Metadata (e.g. MPEG-7, RDF) Document database systems and Query Languages
Optical character recognition Type representations (e.g. Adobe Type 1, Truetype, OpenType)
Page description languages (e.g. PostScript, PDF) Electronic books (E-book) and digital paper
Applications of constraint systems for document engineering Document transformation (e.g. XSLT, XQuery)
Document services on wireless networks (e.g. WAP) Document linking standards (e.g. XLink, XPath, XPointer)
Document APIs (e.g. SAX, DOM) Document security architectures, algorithms and authentication
Variable-data printing (e.g. XSL-FO, PPML) Document versioning and round-tripping
