Workshops & Exhibitions

The workshops at ACM Hypertext 2021 will be held online with the aim to create a more inclusive and informal framework for an innovative exchange of views, exchange experiences, present ideas, promote the research community and identify open problems and directions for future research. The workshops also provide a good opportunity for both established and junior researchers to present work and receive feedback from an interested community in a constructive atmosphere and somewhat more interactive format than the main conference.

Proposals are particularly appreciated on new topics related to the main topics of the conference, but may also include other topics that may be of interest to the hypertext community. There are no limits on creativity in workshop design.

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the experience and background of the organisers in the topic, and on the relevance of the subject matter with regard to the topics addressed in the main conference. We welcome proposals for different types of workshops, from working groups on a specific topic to more traditional conference-like workshops.

In line with the overall workshop, which is held online, we generally prefer “interactive” workshops, which ensure a richer active interaction between the participants and offer plenty of space for controversial and stimulating discussions. Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with the workshop chair before working out a detailed proposal.
