Aim of the symposium

ADCS2012 is an opportunity for researchers and practitioners in document management and information retrieval to meet and present their work. The symposium aims to cover all aspects of Document Computing - issues ranging from the fundamentals of document architectures and standards for markup, through storage, management, retrieval, authentication and workflow, to active and virtual documents. The symposium emphasises both commercial and academic issues by encouraging a variety of submissions.

Topics of interest

The symposium topics include (but are not restricted to) the following:

  • Cognitive Aspects of Documents
  • Digital Libraries
  • Document Databases
  • Document Management
  • Document Standards (XML, SGML etc)
  • Document Workflow
  • Information Retrieval
  • Multimedia Document Management
  • Multimedia Resource Discovery
  • Natural Language Techniques and Documents
  • Personalised Documents
  • User Studies Involving Documents
  • Web Documents


Submissions should comply with the paper guidelines. All submissions must be original work, not previously published elsewhere, and not currently submitted to any other conference or journal.

Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will attend the symposium to present the work. Note also that it is insufficient for an author to register and pay for the symposium to be regarded as fulfilling this obligation.

Papers should be submitted online through EasyChair.

Camera-ready versions of papers should be uploaded through EasyChair as a proceedings author.

Full papers

Full papers should describe new contributions or analyse research issues. Submissions should be at most eight pages long (around 3000 words); over-length submissions risk immediate rejection. Refer to the guidelines for papers for details of the required format.

Posters, short papers and industry status reports

To encourage participation by industry and to provide a place for work of a more speculative nature, ADCS invites submissions for short papers, up to a maximum of four pages (around 1500 words). A typical proposal might describe a leading-edge solution to a practical problem in document management. Short papers follow the same format as for full papers.

Presentation of short papers will be either by short presentation or via a poster session (to be determined). Accepted short papers will also be included in a separate section of the symposium proceedings.
