ACM Ninth Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng)

ACM Ninth Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng)
Munich, Germany, 15-18 September 2009

Document engineering is the computer science discipline that investigates systems for documents in any form and in all media. It is concerned with principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage and maintain documents. The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering is an annual meeting of researchers active in document engineering. All DocEng Proceedings are available at the ACM Digital Library.
