Call for Workshops

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 33rd ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media conference. Hypertext 2022 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 aim to create a more informal framework for an innovative exchange of views, exchange experiences, present ideas, promote the research community and identify open problems and/or directions for future research. At the same time, they also provide a good opportunity for students, junior, and senior researchers alike, as well as industry practitioners  to present their work and receive feedback from an interested community in an interactive and constructive atmosphere. 

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

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the experience and background of the workshop organizers, 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. 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.
