Call for Workshop Proposals


ACM Hypertext 2012 will be running workshops and tutorials, taking place on June 25th, the day before the start of the main conference. The purpose of the workshops is to provide a more informal setting where participants can exchange ideas on a focused topic and suggest directions for future research. As such, they also offer a good opportunity for researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community.

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the experience and background of the organizers in the topic, and on the relevance of the subject matter with regard to the topics addressed in the main conference.

The deadline for submitting proposals will be January 10, 2012.


Proposals for Workshops should include the following elements:
    * Title and acronym;
    * Name(s), affiliation(s), mailing address(es) and e-mail address(es) of the proposers;
    * A description of the topic and motivation of the workshop (not exceeding 500 words);
    * A short description of the target audience;
    * A first version of the Call for Papers;
    * Type of the workshop (full-day or half-day);
    * Arrangements for the organization of the workshop, including a brief outline of the workshop describing anticipated format, possible session names, invited talks, panels, demos;
    * A short description on how the workshop will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers along with an estimation of the number of participants;
    * Names, addresses, and home page links of people who have agreed to be part of the program committee of the workshop;
    * A brief description of the experience and background of the organizers in the topic, and links to homepages of the workshop chairs.

The organizers are encouraged to provide the following additional information:
    * A preliminary list of reviewers
    * A list of potential authors
    * A list of potential attendees 

Proposals should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file to the workshop chair:
