ACM Hypertext 2007

Sunir Shah

Folks,

 

I know I am getting this out late. This year ACM Hypertext is having a closer look at wikis, especially things like semantic wikis and collaborative writing which I know are research interests here.

 

As a bonus, it will be in the UK this year, which may be more convenient for some than other wiki symposiums (Taiwan, Montreal).

 

Best,

Sunir

HYPERTEXT AND SOCIETY

 

ACM Hypertext 2007

Call for Participation

======================================

 

Hypertext and Society Programme

Eighteenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia Manchester, UK 10th - 12th September 2007 http://www.sigweb.org/ht07/home/htsociety.php

 

--------------------------------------

 

ACM Hypertext 2007 consists of five autonomous programmes under a single unified conference. The Hypertext and Society programme aims to explore developments in Hypertext and innovative technologies where the defining feature is the existence of communities of users.

 

It is our hope that the Hypertext and Society Programme will offer a high quality venue for this exciting new area.

 

TOPICS

------

 

We seek papers that explore applications, implementations, implications and evaluation, and necessary models and standards for such systems, including:

 

* Mapping and Visualisation of social spaces and networks

* Blogs and alternative Blog forms (podcasting, photologs etc.)

* Collaborative working

* Wikis

* Forums

* Semantic Wikis

* Folksonomy, tagging, annotation and metadata

* Recommender systems

* Social networks and communities of practice

* Social software for learning

* Citation networks

* Virtual presence, identity and trust

* Multi-user Games

 

We are also seeking papers that explore the implementation and impact of such systems user communities such as:

 

* Governments

* Developing regions

* Virtual organisations

* E-commerce

* Education

* Health care

 

We understand the term hypertext in the broadest sense encompassing a wide range of multimedia applications.

The conference will take place on the 10th, 11th and 12th September 2007, within the Manchester Museum in Manchester, UK. The museum is located within the centre of The University of Manchester campus and is within easy access of several tourist attractions and the city centre of Manchester.

 

Located in the North West of the UK, Manchester is easily reachable by air, rail, and car. Further information of how to get to the conference venue can be found in the travel section. Being in a central location of the country, Manchester also acts as a good base for travelling further a field around the UK, with all the major roads and railway lines passing through the City. London is only 2 hours away by train whilst Edinburgh, the Capital City of Scotland, is only 3 and a half hours away.
