and Social Media.

February 21, 2014: Workshop proposals due

The ACM Hypertext conference focuses on all aspects of modern
hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops to be held in conjunction with the 25th ACM Conference on Hypertext and  Social Media conference.

Hypertext 2014 workshops will provide participants with opportunities to
discuss and explore emerging areas of Hypertext and Social Media with
fellow students, researchers, and practitioners from Industry and
Academia.

The goals of theworkshops are to provide a a more informal setting for
exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting ideas, foster
research community and identify open problems and/or explore directions
for future research. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for
researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an
interested community in an interactive atmosphere.

Proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics, somehow related
to the main conference tracks (links and connection between people, open
data and the semantic of things, user experience and adaptive linking), but
are not limited to other (novel) topics which might be of interest for the
hypertext community. Acceptance ofworkshop proposals will be based on
the experience and background of the organizers in the topic, and on the
relevance of the subject matter with regard to the topics addressed in
the main conference.

We welcome proposals for different types of workshops, from working
groups on a specific topic to more traditional conference-like workshops.
However, we prefer interactive workshops that guarantee richer active
interactions among participants and provide significant room for controversial and stimulating discussions.

We preferentially would rather proposals for half-day workshops. The
need for a full-day workshop should be motivated by some particular reason.
Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with the
workshop chair before working out a detailed proposal.

PROPOSAL FORMAT

The workshop proposals – not longer than 5 pages – have to be sent by
email to theworkshop chairs, and must contain the following information:

– Title of the workshop and acronym
– Workshop organisers (affiliation, contact details, homepage, and prior
experiences with workshop organization.
– Keywords (describing the main themes of the workshop) (from 3 to 5)
– Abstract (up to 70 words)
– Description of the workshop (topics and goals of the workshop) (up to
500 words)
– Motivation (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
– Workshop format (paper presentations, invited talks, panels, demo,
discussion, etc)
– Submissions format (position papers, research papers, demo, poster,
presentations..) and, for each type of submission, specify the features
(length of the papers, template, etc)
– Intended audience and expected attendance (with historical data of  past
versions of the workshop, if available)
– Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee
– Requested duration (half day or full day- in this case, motivation for
the need of a full day)
– Previous editions of the workshop series (if applicable) (URLs,
conference it was co-located with, number of registrants, number of
submissions, number of accepted papers, and any other relevant
information)

The Workshop Proceedings will be published in the ACM Hypertext Extended
Proceedings. If the organizers have addition plans for dissemination
(for example, a special issue of a journal) this needs to specified in the
proposal.

ORGANIZATION OF WORKSHOP

After the acceptance of a workshop proposal, the organizer(s) should:
– Create and distribute a Call for Papers and a Call for Participation;

information about the workshop organization and timeline. The link of
the web site will be published on the Conference Web site;
– Create a Program Committee;
– Review and select contributions to be included in the workshop
proceedings (at least 2 reviewers for each paper);
