The program committee invites the submission of original and unpublished contributions for inclusion in the workshop. All papers and presentations will be in English. Topics to be dealt with include but are not limited to:

     Document image analysis (DIA) systems
     Algorithms for graphics recognition
     Analysis methods for historic documents
     Camera-based/Video document image analysis
     Document analysis for the Internet

     Authoring, annotation, and presentation systems

Full papers must be accompanied by an abstract summarizing the contribution the paper makes to the field. Maximum full paper length is 5 pages in two-column CPS format. All papers will be peer reviewed, and accepted papers will be included in the proceedings.

Short papers

Authors are also invited to submit short papers for late-breaking results. Short papers should be at most 2 pages in two-column CPS format. For submission, please send a PDF file (up to two pages) until January 10, 2012 (extended!) via e-mail to: das2012@griffith.edu.au

After the submission, DAS2012 organizers will quickly review the submitted paper and make a decision of acceptance. If your submission is accepted, you can make a poster presentation. Please note that short papers will appear in an extra booklet, not in the official DAS2012 proceedings.

Participants must register for the workshop.


As usual, DAS 2012 will host a Demonstration Session where attendees and vendors can demonstrate their technologies and scientific contributions in a hands on environment. The demos will be aligned with the poster sessions of the workshop, providing adequate time for interaction.

In order to participate, interested persons should submit a 1-2 page abstract overviewing the technology and proposed demo using the same submission procedure as the short papers (given above) by January 10, 2012.

Participation is not limited to individuals or organizations that have previously submitted a paper or poster, but demo participants must register for the workshop. In case that there are more applications than available space, the time of submission and the overall abstract will be taken into consideration. The conference also reserves the right to select demonstrations based on the degree of appropriateness for DAS.

The organizers will provide a table, chairs and power connection. Requests for additional equipment should be made through the local organizers, and will be at the participants cost.
