ACM Hypertext 2008 ­ The Nineteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia

*** Linking people and places ***

http://www.ht2008.org/

June 19th-21st 2008, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Call for Participation
======================

In 2007, we celebrated the 20th anniversary  of the ACM Conference on
Hypertext and Hypermedia series which is the  acknowledged venue for
high quality peer-reviewed research on linking.  The web, the semantic
web and Web 2.0 are all manifestations  of the success of the link.
The Hypertext Conference provides  the forum for research that
considers links, their semantics, their presentation,  the
applications they have been put to, the knowledge that can be derived
from their analysis and their effect on society. If information is
connected,  then the connection is called a link: the Hypertext
Conference is  concerned with all research concerning links.

The conference will take place June 19-21, 2008, in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, directly after ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital
Libraries (see http://www.jcdl2008.org/). Both conferences are being
hosted by the School of Information Sciences at the University of
Pittsburgh.  Following our theme of "linking people and places," it is
of interest to note that in 1998, the ACM Hypertext and Digital
Libraries conferences were co-located in Pittsburgh, PA. Soon after
1998, the ACM Digital Libraries Conference evolved into the Joint
Conference on Digital Libraries. In 2008, Hypertext conference
celebrating links is again  linked to JCDL in Pittsburgh, ten years
later.

IMPORTANT: May 19th is the last day to register with the early bird
discounted registration fee both JDCL 2008 and Hypertext 2008. A
discount of $100 ($50 for students) if also available for those
registering for both conferences.

The Venue and Accommodation
===========================

Hypertext 2008 and JCDL 2008 will be held at the Omni William Penn
Hotel, a historic luxury hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. Conference
sessions,  workshops and tutorials will take place at the hotel.
IMPORTANT: To ensure that you'll receive the discount conference rate
of $156.00 (US), you will have to place your reservations before May
25, 2008 May 25th for both JCDL and Hypertext conferences.

Students attending HT'08 have the option of staying in a student
dormitory on the University of Pittsburgh campus.

The Program
===========

Invited Speakers
----------------
Hypertext 2008 will present two Keynote Speakers: Bernardo A.
Huberman, a Senior HP Fellow and director of the Social Computing Lab
and Jon Kleinberg, a Professor in the Department of Computer Science
at Cornell University. More information about the keynote speakers is
available at http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/keynote.html

Refereed Paper Tracks
---------------------

This year¹s conference consists of four independent tracks, each with
their own track committee, coordinated by an overall Program Chair

1.	Information Linking and Organization  (Chairs: Paul de Bra and Frank Shipman)
2.	Social Linking (Chairs: Filippo Menczer and Ciro Cattuto)
3.	Applications of  Hypertext (Chair: Erik Duval)
4.	Hypertext, Culture, and Communication  (Chair: Mark Bernstein)

The list of accepted papers for each track and the presentation
schedule is available at http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/schedule.html

Posters and Students Research Competition
-----------------------------------------

Hypertext 2008 will feature a poster/demo session. The list of
accepted posters and demos is available at
http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/posters.html
In addition, students selected to attend the ACM Student Research
Competition will demonstrate their work during the poster session.

Workshops
---------

Hypertext 2008 will feature two workshops, which will be held on June
19th before the start of the main conference:

* Web Science: Collaboration and Collective Intelligence, organized by
Weigang Wang (University of Manchester, UK) and David Millard
(University of Southampton, UK)

* Creating out of the Machine: Hypertext, Hypermedia, and Web Artists
Explore the Craft
Organized by Stephen Ersinghaus (Tunxis Community College, Connecticut, USA).

More information about the workshops is available at
http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/workshops.html

Social and Cultural Program
---------------------------

Hypertext 2008 will feature ACM SIGWEB "Shake-Hands" reception for
delegates of both JDCL and Hypertext conferences and a social dinner
at the award-winning LeMont Restaurant
(http://www.lemontpittsburgh.com/) overlooking Pittsburgh Golden
Triangle.

The Conference week falls within Pittsburgh major downtown arts
festival (http://www.artsfestival.net/) with many performances and
exhibitions all over downtown. While it makes your visit to Pittsburgh
more interesting, it will be also increasingly harder to reserve
downtown hotels (and the rates may go up as well). Please, do not
delay!

In addition, two cultural events are organized for the conference delegates:
* A visit to Pittsburgh Symphony featuring the performance of the
"trumpet phenomenon" Chris Botti on Saturday night,  June 21.  As the
Web site (http://www.pittsburghsymphony.org/pghsymph.nsf/concert+listings/B49CF55E9FA39084852572EA0052704C?opendocument)
says:

"Trumpet phenomenon Chris Botti brings his inimitable velvet tone and
sublime phrasing to the Heinz Hall stage. Marvin Hamlisch leads this
concert of romantic ballads and jazz standards with the lush tones of
your PSO blending perfectly with the warm sound of a master trumpet
player."

*  A visit to Fallingwater (http://www.paconserve.org/index-fw1.asp),
designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 for Pittsburgh department store
owner Edgar Kaufmann Sr.  as a mountain retreat.  This building was
voted the most important building of the 20th century in a poll
conducted by the American Institute of Architects.

Please, find more information about these and other cultural
opportunities at http://www.sigweb.org/ht08/attractions.html
