The ACM Hypertext and Social Media conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications. The ACM Hypertext and Social Media 2013 conference will focus on exploring, studying and shaping relationships between three important dimensions of links in hypertextual systems and the World Wide Web: people, data, and documents.

In 2013, HYPERTEXT is taking place as part of the First ACM European Computing Research Congress (ECRC 2013) which is co-located with the ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI 2013).
