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,




ACM Hypertext 2007
Call for Participation

Hypertext and Society Programme
Eighteenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia
Manchester, UK 10th - 12th September 2007


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.


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.


Participants are invited to submit Technical Papers, Hypertexts, Poster and
Demonstration papers. All submissions must be formatted using the official
ACM SIG proceedings template.

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.
