NHT is a continuing workshop series associated with the ACM Hypertext conference. The workshop acts as forum of discussion for the narrative systems community within the wider audience of the Hypertext conference. The workshop runs both presentations from authors of accepted short research papers, and unstructured unconference sessions to provide a venue for important discussions of issues facing and opportunities for members of the narrative and hypertext community.
This workshop focuses on the archiving and annotation of content produced on social media, which has become a forum for citizen generated news and and eyewitness reports. This is a multidisciplinary workshop, which will stimulate an exchange of ideas between research and industry, including the domains of news media, digital archiving and preservation, social network analysis, semantic web and linked data, communication studies and cultural studies.
The evolution of hypermedia content on the Web and the growing popularity of mobile devices are leading to a paradigm shift in the way educational services are provided. Emerging approaches such as cloud technology, semantic web and MOOC are fostering this change, opening unprecedented possibilities for education. The "Learning in the Cloud" workshop aims to bring together researchers from industry and academia to address the challenges of the cloud era.
Microblogging services (e.g., Twitter) represent freely-accessible social networks allowing registered members to broadcast short posts referring to a potentially-unlimited range of topics, by also exploiting the immediateness of handy smart devices. This workshop wants to stress the vision of this powerful communication channel as social sensor, which can be used to detect and characterize interesting and yet unreported information and events in real time, crossing all topics and locations. Future technologies on this connectivity may also provide applications with automatic techniques for the generation of news (filtered over user profiles), offering a sideways to the existing authoritative information media.
The workshop considers a upcoming phenomenon concerning the growing needs to information technology, as well as the desire to be connected (or linked), and aims to investigate new computing paradigms which prevent potential threats caused by uncertain future. The threats may include natural disasters, human beings themselves, and the extensive dependence on the Internet and computer networks which will lead to unexpected damages on the existing well-connected web of things.
