Tentative schedule:


HUMAN’22

Title of the workshop:

HUMAN’22 – 5th Workshop on Human Factors in Hypertext

List of organizers:

  • Claus Atzenbeck (Hof University)
  • Jessica Rubart (Ostwestfalen-Lippe University)

Abstract:

HUMAN’22 has a strong focus on the user. Its user-centric view on hypertext not only includes user interfaces and interaction, but also discussions about hypertext application domains. Furthermore, the workshop raises the question of how original hypertext ideas can improve today’s hypertext systems. Historically, hypertext research is strongly connected with human factors. Hypertext pioneers, such as Doug Engelbart or Ted Nelson, focused on human factors in hypertext, e.g., Doug Engelbart’s “augmenting human intellect” or Ted Nelson’s information structure “ZigZag”. This workshop combines original hypertext research ideas with recent hypertext research trends. In addition, the motivation is to consolidate different hypertext research areas from the viewpoint of human factors.

Narrative and Hypertext 2022

Title of the workshop:

The Narrative and Hypertext (NHT)

List of organizers:

  • David Millard (University of Southampton)
  • Charlie Hargood (Bournemouth University)

Abstract:

The Narrative and Hypertext (NHT) workshops aim to provide an interdisciplinary forum to bring together individuals from the humanities and technological communities to share work and discuss state-of-the-art research on narrative from both a technical and aesthetic perspective. It is the longest running workshop series at ACM Hypertext – running since 2011 – and has fostered numerous collaborations which have led to work published in the main conference as well as serving as an important discussion point for important issues facing the community. NHT has a sister workshop, AIS (Authoring for Interactive Storytelling) that runs as part of the ICIDS conference. AIS2020 kickstarted work on a new edited volume focused on ‘The Authoring Problem’ for interactive digital narratives, this is now in production, and this year NHT22 invites open contributions related to the topics within the book, these are concerned with the technical and craft difficulties of writing complex interactive multimedia and text, and designing and building the software to support that process. Researchers and practitioners working with hypertext or narrative are invited to attend this workshop. Participants are asked to submit a short (between 2 and 5 pages) position paper on their current work. The planned event is a half day virtual workshop with sessions based around short presentations of the paper submissions from attendees, with emphasis on Q&A and discussion.

OASIS’22

Title of the workshop:

Open Challenges in Online Social Networks

List of organizers:

  • Barbara Guidi (University of Pisa)
  • Andrea Michienzi (University of Pisa)
  • Laura Ricci (University of Pisa)

Abstract

Since their introduction, Online Social Networks deeply changed the way humans interact with each other, offering countless new possibilities and demolishing the physical barriers among people. Their worldwide adoption introduced numerous problems, including poor privacy management, the spread of fake news, the impact of bot accounts, architectural scalability, a poor redistribution of the economic value generated, and others. The aim of this workshop is to attract contributions that are able to identify relevant problems in centralized and decentralized Online Social Networks and propose innovative solutions to these problems.
