Chairs: Kevin Koidl (Trinity College Dublin) and Ben Steichen (Santa Clara University)

This session is a venue for early stage research results, as compared to the full-paper track of the conference. Late-breaking results contain original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, preliminary results, industry showcases, and system prototypes. Papers can cover any of the 3 full paper tracks listed for Hypertext 2016 (See Conference Tracks).

Submissions will be assessed based on their originality and novelty, potential contribution to the research field, potential impact in particular use cases, and the usefulness of presented experiences, as well as their overall readability.

Please note that late-breaking papers are not a second chance for those that did not make it to the main track. Only new research with up-to-date results are considered as late-breaking results.

Accepted papers will be presented at the poster session during Hypertext 2016 and will be published in the Hypertext 2016 Companion Proceedings on

Submission Format

Submissions should follow the same guidelines as the full papers. The page limit is 4 pages, including references. All submissions should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG proceedings template and submitted through the EasyChair ACM HT 2016 Extended Proceedings site, designated as a "Late-breaking Results" paper.
