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. It 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.

HT2017 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. Therefore, HT2017 has the following tracks:

  • Social Networks and Digital Humanities (Linking people)
  • Semantic Web and Linked Data (Linking data)
  • Adaptive Hypertext and Recommendations (Linking resources)
  • News and Storytelling (Linking stories)
  • Demonstrations
