** Short Papers Due May 15, 2005 ** CHANGED FROM APRIL 15th.


CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Background



With the ever-increasing use of the Web, a growing number of documents are
published and accessed on-line. The emerging issues pose new challenges for
Document Analysis. The need is evident for further discussion to identify
the role of Document Analysis in Web applications.


While there has been active research on Web Content Extraction using
text-based techniques, documents are in fact 2-dimensional entities, and
often include multimedia content. Hence, techniques that have been developed
for image-based documents could prove valuable in the realm of Web
documents, and new methods for the analysis of multimedia content will be
required.


Following the success of the first two WDA workshops in Seattle, USA (WDA2001)
and in Edinburgh, UK (WDA2003) the series continues with WDA2005 in Seoul,
Korea. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from the
Document Analysis and Web communities such as Web Content Extraction, Web
Publishing, Digital Libraries and e-Commerce Security, to share experiences
and discuss possible avenues for future collaboration.


Technical Focus


This workshop is intended as a forum for discussing emerging issues in
document analysis in Web environments. Special attention will be given to
new applications and requirements created by opportunities on the Internet
(in the area of multimedia document analysis and management). We invite
contributions in areas including but not limited to the following:



Workshop Format


WDA 2005 is planned to be a one-day single-track event. Participants are
expected to give a short description of their work (submitted for review in the
form of a short paper) and participate in the discussions.


The workshop will consist of short presentations grouped in thematic
sessions. In addition there will be sessions focusing discussion on
a number of specific topics as yet to be determined.

Publications


As in the previous editions of the workshop, accepted short papers will published
in print for distribution at the workshop. Other formats also being considered
include the conference Web site (for digests of discussions) and publication
of expanded versions of papers in a book.


Submission Information


We invite the submission of original, previously unpublished work. Papers
should identify current/future needs, open problems and discuss the authors'
view of the subject and overall direction. Papers describing work in
progress are also encouraged.


We also welcome, with some restrictions, submissions that are closely
related to work submitted also to ICDAR2005. Authors can use this workshop
as a forum to present work that differs materially from their ICDAR
presentations, in any of several ways:



Papers should be submitted via the Web in camera-ready format and should
not exceed 4 printed pages. The format adopted is that of the IEEE-CS
Conference Publications and is the same as that of ICDAR2005.


Full details of the formatting instructions, a sample document and templates
for LaTeX and MS-Word users can be found at the ICDAR2005 submissions site
(http://image.korea.ac.kr/icdar2005/paper.html). PDF is strongly preferred as
the submission format, though PostScript may also be used.

Paper-submission due 15 April 2005
Author Notification 31 May 2005
Camera-ready copy due 30 June 2005
