The Tenth Australasian Document Computing Symposium (ADCS 2005) was hosted by the School of Information Technologies at The University of Sydney on Monday 12 December, 2005.

This site is now being organised as a permanent repository of the material presented at ADCS 2005. In particular, the technical program has been augmented with links to PDF files for the presented papers. The complete front matter of the proceedings is also available.

The remainder of this page is the original material from prior to the conference.

Aim of the symposium

ADCS 2005 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 will emphasise 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:
  • Digital Libraries
  • Document Databases
  • Document Management
  • Document Standards (XML, SGML etc)
  • Document Workflow
  • Information Retrieval
  • Multimedia Document Management
  • Multimedia Resource Discovery
  • Personalised Documents

Important dates

  • Deadline for submissions: 7 October, 2005
  • Notification of acceptance: 11 November, 2005
  • Final versions due: 5pm, 18 November, 2005
  • On-time registration deadline: 1 December, 2005
  • Symposium: 12 December, 2005


Paper submissions must be sent to as a PDF email file attachment (no exceptions) by the due date (no exceptions). 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.

Full papers

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

A printed proceedings of the papers will be distributed to participants at the symposium. Electronic copies of the papers will be made available on the website after the symposium. All submissions will be fully refereed by a blind refereeing process, at their full published length, and will comply with DEST criteria for fully-refereed conference papers (category F1).
