The 15th ACM SIGWEB International Symposium on Document Engineering

September 8-11, Lausanne, Switzerland

DocEng is the leading international ACM Symposium for researchers, practitioners, developers, and users to explore cutting-edge ideas and to exchange techniques, tools, and experiences in the domain of document engineering.

DocEng is built on the tradition of past symposia previously held around the world including Fort Collins (2014), Florence (2013), Paris (2012), and Mountain View (2011).

DocEng 2015 will be held at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, September 08-11, 2015.

The symposium emphasizes innovative approaches to document engineering technology, use of documents and document collections in real world applications, novel principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these.

DocEng is a single track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. It will be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials.

Students presenting their work at DocEng 2015 will be eligible to apply for SIGWEB Student Travel Awards.
