Call for Participation

Are you a graduate student and enthusiastic about hypertext research and technology? Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in the upcoming INTR/HT Summer School at the prestigious 2024 ACM Hypertext Conference!

The INTR/HT Summer School is an intensive study of hypertext theory and practice funded by SIGWEB for master’s and PhD level students, with the goal of educating the next generation hypertext researchers. It takes place online during the summer and culminates as in-person study over the two-day period leading into the ACM Hypertext ’24 conference in Poznań, Poland.

Instruction is held seminar-style and taught by leading hypertext researchers. Topics include the hypertext field and community, research methodologies, research practices and opportunities, publications and the ACM style guidelines, and ethics and professional conduct. Students will also gain insights about the ACM Hypertext conference structure, SIGWEB, and ACM. At the end of the program, students will have gained a greater understanding of the field, built expertise as a hypertext researcher, developed a network of colleagues, and become better prepared to participate in future ACM conferences.
