Chairs: Kevin Koidl (Trinity College Dublin) and Ben Steichen (Santa Clara University)

 The demonstrations track complements the overall program of the conference. Demonstrations show implementations of novel, interesting, and important concepts or systems related to Hypertext. We invite submissions which address the main topics of the conference. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages. The page limit for demo papers is 4 pages. Accepted demo papers will be published in the HT 2016 Extended proceedings.

Submissions will be reviewed by experienced and knowledgeable researchers and practitioners; each submission will receive a detailed feedback. It would be beneficial to include links enabling the reviewers testing the application or reviewing the component.

Accepted demos will have a space to demonstrate the system to conference attendees during the poster and demo session.

Submission Format

Submissions should follow the same guidelines as the full papers. The page limit is 4 pages, including references. All submissions should be formatted according to the official ACM SIG proceedings template and submitted through the EasyChair ACM HT 2016 Extended Proceedings site, designated as a "Demo" paper. Only PDF documents will be accepted.
