Workshops and Tutorials

Hypertext 2016 workshops will provide participants with opportunities to discuss and explore emerging areas of Hypertext and Social Media with fellow students, researchers, and practitioners from Industry and Academia. The workshops provide a a more informal setting for exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting ideas, foster research community and identify open problems and/or explore directions for future research.

Workshop proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics that are of interest for the hypertext community. Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the experience and background of the organizers in the topic, and on the relevance of the subject matter with regard to the topics addressed in the main conference.

In addition, we cordially invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors in academia, industry, and government agencies. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research and ideas, innovative developments, and novel applications in a specific aspect of hypertext and social media, but proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics, related to the main conference tracks (i.e., missing links on the WWW).

Submission deadline: 15 January 2016 (passed)
