The deadline for ACM Hypertext 2023 late breaking, blue sky, demos, traversals, and doctoral consortium has been extended to 14 June 2023

Track chairs: Dr Alessio Antonini (The Open University, UK)Dr Elisa Bastianello (Bibliotheca Hertziana, Rome)Dr Francesca Benatti (The Open University, UK), Dr Sam Brooker (University of the Arts London, UK)Dr Mariusz Pisarski (University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow, PL)

The Late breaking, blue sky, demos, traversals, and doctoral consortium  track welcomes submissions of original and unpublished ideas that are still in the early stages of research (work-in-progress).

Late breaking and doctoral consortium

We encourage researchers and practitioners to use this track as a valuable opportunity to receive useful feedback on early-stage work and foster discussions and collaborations among colleagues. We look forward to receiving:

  • Innovative research plans and preliminary results;
  • System prototypes addressing the theory and practice of topics relevant to the hypertext community;
  • Essays introducing recently started research projects or summarising project results.

The demonstrations are an essential and exciting complement to the overall conference program. These are a great way to show implementations of novel, engaging, and crucial concepts or systems related to hypertext interest areas and receive some helpful feedback from the community.

Note: that all submissions should be intended to convey a scientifically founded result or work in progress and not as advertisements for commercial software packages.

Blue Sky papers

We also invite submissions with an emphasis on visionary ideas, long-term challenges, and new research opportunities. Here we want to overcome the constraints of the traditional review process by incubating innovative approaches, risky and provocative ideas, and propose challenges and opportunities in the near future. We are particularly excited about ideas that address the conference theme of “The Humanity within.”

Submission guidelines

Submissions to this track should follow the same formatting guidelines as submissions to the research track but are limited to the short paper format (3-6 pages maximum references excluded) or the poster/demo format (2 pages maximum references excluded). Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented at the conference. See the Submission and Review Process section below for links to the appropriate ACM publications templates.

Submit a proposal on EasyChair.

All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically.
