ADCS 2014: The 19th Australasian Document Computing Symposium



The 19th Australasian Document Computing Symposium (ADCS 2014) will be held in Melbourne on 27--28 November, 2014.

Aim of the symposium

ADCS 2014 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 and Information Retrieval. 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:

Important dates

(All deadlines are on the date specified at 11:59 pm in the UTC-12 timezone.)


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.

Submission for ADCS 2014 has closed.

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 or search. Short papers should follow the same format as for full papers.

Presentation of short papers will be via a poster session. Accepted short papers will also be included in a separate section of the symposium proceedings.


The ADCS 2014 proceedings are now available through the ACM digital library.
