Symposium on Document Engineering


New : on Line presentation menu is available


Documents are one of the centerpieces of globally interconnected systems that store information drawn from many media and deliver that information as active documents that adapt to the needs of their users. A document may be stored in final presentation form or it may be generated on-the-fly, undergoing substantial transformations in the process. Documents, that may include extensive hyperlinks, also make 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 general because of the way they bridge and integrate a variety of paradigms (database, knowledge representation, and structured document).

Document engineering is a discipline within computer science that investigates systems for documents in any form and in all media. Like software engineering, document engineering is concerned with principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, and maintain documents.

The Symposium on Document Engineering is an academic conference devoted to the dissemination of research on models, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. DocEng 2003, the third annual meeting, seeks high-quality, original papers and panels that address the theory, design, development, and evaluation of computer systems that support the creation, analysis, distribution and, interaction with documents in any medium.
