About

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 ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media (HT) provides a premium single-track platform for high quality peer-reviewed research on theory, systems and applications of hypertext and social media. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext and social media, including 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.

We invite high quality submissions relating to all the above aspects of hypertext and social media, but encourage submissions to align themselves with three broad themes:

  • Hyper society, covers digital humanities and connecting/connected people
  • Hyper data, covers connected things on the documents, Web, and IoT
  • Hyper media, covers connected traditional and non-traditional media

Accepted papers will appear in the Hypertext 2018 Conference Proceedings that will be published by ACM and additionally be made available through the ACM Digital Library. Selected papers will be considered for a fast track publication in ACM Transactions on the Web. As traditional, one paper will be selected for the Douglas Englebart best paper award.

Acceptance of the papers will be either as full (regular) or short papers with corresponding oral presentation slots, and at least one author is required to register as presenter. In addition, all authors of accepted papers are invited to prepare a poster that they can present together with accepted demos at Poster and Demos reception.

Papers must report original, previously unpublished results substantiated by experimentation, simulation, analysis, or application. Two submission categories are possible:

  • Regular research papers (8 pages, with up to 1 page extra for references, for a total of 9 pages max) discussing mature research results.
  • Short papers (4 pages, with up to 1 page extra for references, for a total of 5 pages max) presenting ongoing and preliminary results, system prototypes or industry showcases, or results that do not require more detailed discussion.

Selected regular paper submissions may be recommended for publication as short papers.
