Eighth International Workshop on SCIentific DOCument Analysis
(SCIDOCA 2024)
associated with JSAI-isAI 2024

Workshop: May 28 - 31, 2024

Venue: TBD

Aims and Scope

Recent proliferation of scientific papers and technical documents has become an obstacle to efficient information acquisition of new information in various fields. It is almost impossible for individual researchers to check and read all related documents. Even retrieving relevant documents is becoming harder and harder. This workshop gathers all the researchers and experts who are aiming at scientific document analysis from various perspectives, and invite technical paper presentations and system demonstrations that cover any aspects of scientific document analysis.

Important Dates (Time zone: AOE (Anywhere on Earth))

Submission Deadline for Long Papers: January 31, 2024 February 29, 2024 (Firm deadline)
Submission Deadline for Short Papers: January 31, 2024 February 29, 2024 (Firm deadline)

Camera-Ready due (Long+Short Papers): March 22, 2024
Workshop Date: May 28 - 31, 2024


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • text analysis
  • document structure analysis
  • logical structure analysis
  • figure and table analysis
  • citation analysis of scientific and technical documents
  • scientific information assimilation
  • summarization and visualization
  • knowledge discovery/mining from scientific papers and data
  • similar document retrieval
  • entity and relation linking between documents and knowledge base
  • survey generation
  • resources for scientific documents analysis
  • document understanding in general
  • NLP systems aiming for scientific documents including tagging, parsing, coreference, etc.


There are two classes of submissions:
  • Long paper on original and completed work, including concrete evaluation and analysis wherever appropriate; and
  • Short paper on a small, focused contribution, work in progress, a negative result, or an opinion piece.

The page limits are up to 14 pages including references for the longer papers, and up to 7 pages including references for the short papers. (Reviewers will be told that there is no penalty for writing a shorter submission.)

All submissions should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer Verlag LNCS style in a pdf form, which can be obtained from here. The paper should be anonymized. If you use a word file, please follow the instruction of the format, and then convert it into a pdf form and submit it at the paper submission page.

For both classes, in addition to the original unpublished work, we also accept the papers that have already been published or presented in other venues. This submission should also be anonymized, and will be reviewed by the program committee.

You can submit your paper at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scidoca2024 . If you cannot submit a paper by EasyChair System by some trouble, please send email to "nguyenml[at]jaist.ac.jp"

If a paper is accepted, at least one author of the paper must register the workshop and present it. Please register the workshop at registration page.
