ACM DocEng 2013 - 1st International Workshop on:

Document Changes: Modeling, Detection, Storage and Visualization

, Florence, Italy

DChanges 2013

DChanges 2013 workshop

DChanges 2013, the first International Workshop on Document Changes: Modeling, Detection, Storage and Visualization will be held at the 13th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2013) in Florence, Italy, in September 2013.

The goal of this workshop is to share ideas, common issues and principles about models and algorithms, change tracking, collaborative editing and document versioning. We want to look at these topics from di fferent perspectives and want to understand which are the most common issues and which are the peculiarities of each domain and each approach.

The main topics of the workshop will be change tracking (diff algorithms, high-level differences, finding changes on trees, graphs, diagrams and any kind of document), change analysis and interpretation (human-oriented diff, modelling changes), merging (management of update conflicts, n-way merge algorithms), and applications of diff techniques (use of diff algorithms in humanities, collaborative editing).

The proceedings of DChanges 2013 are freely available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1008/.

Registration is now open at the DocEng registration page.

Program and keynote

The workshop will be held September 10, 2013 at the Engineering School, Via S. Marta, 3, 50139 Firenze, Italy.

The workshop will run a full day, and be divided in three sessions, in order to emphasize both theoretical/algorithmic aspects and practical applications. It will close with a keynote by Ethan Munson and a roundtable discussion.

Call for papers

Many people have approached the problem of investigating the evolution of documents and data from different perspectives, e.g. by comparing and versioning. The goal of this workshop is to share ideas, common issues and principles, and to foster research collaboration on these topics. The workshop will further allow researchers to showcase recent developments on diff and versioning tools. Contributions from related areas, e.g., software engineering, collaboration, or ontology management, are also welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Change tracking:

Finding changes on trees, graphs, diagrams and any kind of document:

Change analysis and interpretation:

Merging:

Applications:

Paper Submission

Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. Two types of submissions are possible:

All papers must conform to the ACM SIG Proceedings format. Papers must be submitted to the EasyChair site for DChanges 2013. All submissions will undergo a rigorous single blind review process.

Important Dates

Papers must be submitted to the EasyChair site.

Proceedings

The proceedings will be published on CEUR-WS.org. Digital copies of the proceedings will be available during the workshop.
