==================== CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS =======================

In conjunction with Hypertext 2014, the 25th ACM Conference on
Hypertext and Social Media.
Santiago, Chile, September 1-4, 2014

February 21, 2014: Workshop proposals due

The ACM Hypertext conference focuses on all aspects of modern
hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and
computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops to be held in conjunction with the 25th ACM Conference on
Hypertext and Social Media conference.

Hypertext 2014 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 goals of the workshops are to provide a a more informal
setting for exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting
ideas, foster research community and identify open problems and/or
explore 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 in an interactive atmosphere.

Proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics, somehow
related to the main conference tracks (links and connection between
people, open data and the semantic of things, user experience and
adaptive linking), but are not limited to other (novel) topics which
might be of interest for the hypertext 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.

We welcome proposals for different types of workshops, from working
groups on a specific topic to more traditional conference-like
workshops. However, we prefer interactive workshops that guarantee
richer active interactions among participants and provide significant
room for controversial and stimulating discussions.

We preferentially would rather proposals for half-day workshops. The
need for a full-day workshop should be motivated by some particular
reason. Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with
the workshop chair before working out a detailed proposal.

===========================PROPOSAL FORMAT =============================

The workshop proposals – not longer than 5 pages - have to be sent by
email to the workshop chairs, and must contain the following

- Title of the workshop and acronym
- Workshop organisers (affiliation, contact details, homepage, and
prior experiences with workshop organization.

- Abstract (up to 70 words)
- Description of the workshop (topics and goals of the workshop) (up
to 500 words)
- Motivation  (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
- Workshop format (paper presentations, invited talks, panels, demo,
discussion, etc)
- Submissions format (position papers, research papers, demo, poster,
presentations..) and, for each type of submission, specify the
features (length of the papers, template, etc)
- Intended audience and expected attendance (with historical data of
past versions of the workshop, if available)
- Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee

conference it was co-located with, number of registrants, number of
submissions, number of accepted papers, and any other relevant

The Workshop Proceedings will be published in the ACM Hypertext
Extended Proceedings. If the organizers have addition plans for
dissemination (for example, a special issue of a journal) this needs
to specified in the proposal.

=============== ORGANIZATION OF WORKSHOP ===============
