12th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering Telecom ParisTech (DocEng),
Paris France, Sept. 4-7, 2012
Documents are communication artifacts in any form and in any media; they can be simple or compound, static or time-varying, private or open. Document collections underpin research, education, commerce, entertainment ? a full range of human activity. Document engineering encompasses the study of principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and access documents and document collections.
You are invited to submit original papers to the 12th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2012). Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and the full breadth of document types and applications. DocEng is sponsored by ACM by means of the ACM SIGWEB Special Interest Group.
Proceedings are available through the ACM Digital Library.
We have received a number of requests to allow some extra time for full paper extensions. We have decided to delay the deadline for abstract submission one week, until April 13. Full paper submissions will accordingly be due April 20th.
Topics relevant to the symposium include (but are not limited to) :

Document Recognition and Retrieval XX (2013)
San Francisco, USA Feb. 5-7, 2013
Paper Submission Deadline : July 23, 2012 (11:59 PST)
Document Recognition and Retrieval (DRR) is one of the leading international conferences devoted to current research in document analysis, recognition and retrieval. The 20th Document Recognition and Retrieval Conference is being held as part of SPIE Electronic Imaging, from Feb. 5-7, 2013 in San Francisco, California, USA.
The conference venue and hotel will be the Hyatt Regency near the San Francisco Airport (SFO).
The Conference Chairs and Program Committee invite all researchers working on document recognition and retrieval to submit original research papers. Papers are presented in oral and poster sessions at the conference, along with invited talks by leading researchers. Accepted papers will be published by the SPIE in the conference proceedings. At the conference a Best Student Paper Award will be presented.
Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the areas below.
All paper submissions should be between 8-12 pages in length, using the SPIE LaTeX template (available from conference web pages). For accepted papers, final submissions will also be 8-12 pages in the same format. Papers should clearly identify the problem addressed in the paper, identify the original contribution(s) of the paper, relate the paper to previous work, and provide experimental and/or theoretical evaluation as appropriate. Submissions should be uploaded through the conference web site (http://www.cs.rit.edu/~drr2013/submission.html).

CLEF-IP is an evaluation campaign organized as a Lab of the CLEF conference (http://clef2012.org). It evaluates information retrieval for tasks in the intellectual property domain. Four new tasks have been developed for 2012, and participants can choose to participate in one or more tasks. "Flowchart Recognition Task" involves the interpretation of images of flowcharts in patents. Participants in this task will be asked to extract the information in these images and return it in a predefined textual format. Detailed instructions on the task and training data download are here: http://www.ifs.tuwien.ac.at/~clef-ip/flowcharts.shtml
For more information and to register to participate, see: http://ifs.tuwien.ac.at/~clef-ip/

We would like to remind you that the TC10 and TC11 Web sites always welcome contributions of new datasets or other resources related to the community. We would like to encourage all the TC11 members to submit such material to the TC11 for archiving. The availability of datasets, ground truth and performance evaluation tools online is not only good practice, but also a requirement for a field to progress. We would like make a special request to the organizers of recent and future competitions. Independently of whether you have the competition datasets and evaluation tools available through other Web sites, please consider archiving them with TC10 / TC11 as well. Web sites often go off-line and useful resources are frequently lost forever. Please check the TC10 site on information about how to submit datasets for archiving. http://iapr-tc10.univ-lr.fr/index.php/datasets-and-software
