HT 2018 [Call for Workshop Proposals]

Ujwal Gadiraju
Hi all,

This is a call for workshop proposals at HT 2018, Baltimore, Maryland.

The ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media (HT) is a premium venue
for high quality peer-reviewed research on theory, systems and
applications for hypertext and social media. The conference would be
held in the beautiful city of Baltimore this year. HyperText is
concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research, including
social media, adaptation, personalization, recommendations, user
modeling, linked data and semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext,
and its application in digital humanities, as well as with interplay
between those aspects such as linking stories with data or linking
people with resources. HT2018 will focus on the role of links, linking,
hypertext and hyperlink theory on the web and beyond, as a foundation
for approaches and practices in the wider community.

The goals of the workshops are to provide a more informal setting for
exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting ideas, foster the
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, related to the main conference
themes, but may also include other (novel) topics, which might be of
interest for the hypertext community.

Acceptance of workshop 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. Potential proposers
are invited to discuss their ideas with the workshop chair before
working out a detailed proposal.

Proposals for workshops should be no more than four pages in length
(10pt, single column, with reasonable margins) with the following
- Title of the workshop and suggested acronym
- Keywords (describing the main themes)
- Abstract
- Description of the workshop (topics and goals)
- Relevance of the workshop to Hypertext 2018
- Workshop organizers bios (1-2 paragraphs per organizer)
- Motivation (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
- Workshop and submission formats
- Length (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
- Any plan for further publication (e.g., special issue in journals)
- Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee
- Send your workshop proposals (in PDF format) by email to the workshop
chairs, Haewoon Kwak ([hidden email]) and Ujwal Gadiraju
([hidden email]). For additional inquiries, please do not hesitate to
contact the workshop chairs.
