*** Hypertext 2008 ***

*** Linking people and places ***

June 19-21, 2008 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

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 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
directly after ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2008
( Both conferences are hosted by the School
of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.

This year's technical conference consists of four independent tracks,
each with their own track committee, coordinated by an overall Program

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 technical paper deadline has now passed, but the poster deadline approaches.

The Program Committee for Hypertext 2008 is now inviting submissions
of original and unpublished Posters and Demonstrations. Proposals will
take the form of 2 pages which will appear in the formal Conference
Proceedings and be published by ACM and be available through the ACM
Digital Library. Presentation will take the form of a one minute
³poster pitch² followed by poster sessions within the conference

The details about the submission format and process can be found on
the Hypertext 2008 submission page
