Hypertext Applications Track: deadline approaching!
*** Final Call for Papers and Extended Submission (*** New deadline: February 15th 2008 ***)
Applications of Hypertext Track at Hypertext 2008: the Nineteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia
June 19th-21st 2008, Pittsburgh, PA, USA
The ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia is the acknowledged venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on linking. The web, the semantic web and the Web 2.0 are all manifestations of the success of the link. The Hypertext Conference provides the forum for research that considers links, their semantics, their presentation, the applications they have been put to, the knowledge that can be derived from their analysis and their effect of society. If information is connected, then the connection is called a link, and the Hypertext Conference is concerned with all research concerning links. HT08 will consist of four independent tracks, each with its own track committee: Information Linking and Organization; Applications of Hypertext; Hypertext, Culture, and Communication; and Social Linking, to which we call your attention.
The applications track focuses on how hypertext approaches and technologies can be applied in diverse domains, including, but not restricted to:
– technology enhanced learning
– cultural heritage
– personal information management
– music information retrieval
– performance support systems
– commerce sites
– geo-spatial information systems
– medical and health systems
Proposals can focus more on the technological approaches or on the added value that the hypertext application provides. User and evaluation studies are welcome in this track.
Details on the submission format and procedure are available at the HT2008 submission page (http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/submission.html). Accepted papers will appear in the formal Conference Proceedings, published by ACM. All material will be available through the ACM Digital Library.
*** Technical Paper Stream
February 15th 2008 (Extended from February 11th) submission deadline
March 21st 2008 authors informed of results of reviewing
April 4th 2008 final Papers to ACM
Full technical papers (10 pages) should present significant scientific advances that are at a mature stage of development. We are looking for full papers that present relevant contributions to research, development, and practice in the area of hypertext and hypermedia. We are also interested in survey papers which present an authoritative and original perspective on an area of interest.
Short papers (5 pages) should present interesting recent results or novel thought-provoking ideas that are not quite ready for a regular full-length paper, or where the research has limited scope or the results have lesser significance.
*** Posters and Demonstrations
March 28th 2008 submission deadline
April 9th 2008 committee decisions to authors
April 16th 2008 final copy to ACM
Poster presentations and demonstrations (2 pages in the proceedings) are solicited, which present new ideas, generate interest in a research area, or describe or demonstrate useful or interesting work that is not substantial enough for a technical paper presentation.
ACM Hypertext 2008 will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, ranked #1 Most Livable City in America. It is co-located and scheduled directly after ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (http://www.jcdl2008.org/). The two conferences will meet again in Pittsburgh, 10 years years after ACM Hypertext 1998 and ACM Digital Libraries 1998 were last co-located there. In 2008, both conferences are being hosted by the School of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh (http://www.sis.pitt.edu/). The Pittsburgh area is home to more than 25 colleges and universities, resulting in a vibrant and diverse community of learners and teachers. The region welcomes more than 10 million visitors each year, who enjoy amenities and cultural attractions including the world-class Carnegie Museums, the outstanding Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the decades-long tradition of major league sports! Pittsburgh is centrally located, being within 90 minutes flying time of!
the country’s major metropolitan areas. While being challenged by the presentations at Hypertext 2008, don’t miss an opportunity to sample the museums, the performing arts organizations and the city’s charming and diverse neighborhoods.
