Submission Types:

Typically, the workshop covers invited speaker talks along with oral, poster, tutorial, demo sessions and working group discussions. DAS 2024 will accept contributions of the following types:

  • Full Papers (12-15 pages): Full papers should describe complete works of original research in topics relevant to the workshop. Accepted submissions will be presented during the workshop (orally or by poster) and published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. DAS also provides an opportunity for authors to resubmit papers that have been revised after integrating reviewers' comments from the main ICDAR conference. However, all resubmissions should include a response letter as supplementary material highlighting the revisions made.

  • Short Papers (6-8 pages): Short papers provide an opportunity to report on research in progress, to present live applied demos and novel positions on document analysis systems. Accepted short papers will appear in an extra online booklet and not in the official DAS 2024 proceedings.

  • Demos: As usual, DAS 2024 will host a demonstration session where participants 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 personnel should submit a short paper (6-8 pages) overviewing the detailed technical specifications and practical aspects of the proposed demo. The paper should include detailed figures and descriptions highlighting how the demo works and it's real-world applicability.

    Authors of all accepted papers in the full or short paper category can also participate in the demonstration session by showcasing their research through demos. Additionally, participants with accepted papers in the main ICDAR conference can also present their work at the DAS demo session. In order to do so, authors must submit a brief supplementary document (4-8 pages) focusing on the demo's technical specifications (with detailed figures and description), it's real-world applicability, and any other technical details not covered in the main conference paper. Authors are requested to make sure that this document complements, without overlapping, the main submission to provide a clearer, fuller understanding of the research's practical implementation.

By submitting a paper to DAS 2024, all authors implicitly agree to adhere to the IAPR Ethical Requirements for Authors, thus upholding the integrity and standards of scholarly publication. We look forward to your contributions and to fostering meaningful discussions at DAS 2024.

Instructions for Authors:

While preparing submission, please adhere to the following instructions:

  • All papers (full or short) must be formatted according to the instructions and style files provided by Springer. The LaTeX template for LNCS can be accessed from Overleaf.

  • Length of full papers must be 12-15 pages (excluding references) and that of short papers must be 6-8 pages. Demo papers can be 4-8 pages in length.

  • All paper submissions (full/short/demo) will undergo single blind peer review.

  • Accepted full or short papers can be accompanied by live demos if authors desire. However, the authors must explicitly inform at time of acceptance notification to make necessary arrangement.

  • All papers must be submitted via the workshop's submission page.

Registration and Inquiries:

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop, in order to present the paper. For further instructions, please refer to the ICDAR 2024 page.
