ACM Hypertext 2014, Santiago, Chile, September 1-4
Call for Doctoral Consortium Papers
(Deadline: May 23rd, 2014)

The Hypertext 2014 Doctoral Consortium aims to provide qualified Ph.D. students with the opportunity to present their on-going research to the hypertext community. The Doctoral Consortium will be an integral part of the Hypertext 2014 program, and will provide a constructive atmosphere and a forum for Ph.D. students to receive useful feedback from the leading experts, to exchange ideas, compare approaches and meet fellow researchers in the field. Doctoral students are invited to apply to present their research to scholars field who will provide constructive comments about their work.

Submissions should be related to the conference topics (see ACM Hypertext 2014: Conference Tracks) and describe Ph.D. research that is at a stage where feedback from the broader hypertext community might be of value. Thus, we expect students to be close to presenting their thesis proposal, or to have presented the proposal with at least a year of work remaining before completion of their thesis.

Submissions should include an extended abstract (up to four pages in the ACM SIG Proceedings format specified by ACM Hypertext 2014, including figures and references), which covers the following aspects:

The problem(s) that the proposed research is addressing.
The main contribution(s) of the research to the HT field in the context of existing research.
The proposed solution(s), including a brief description of results achieved so far and a tentative plan for future work.
A revised version of this extended abstract will be included in the Hypertext 2014 Extended Proceedings, which will be published open-access at CEUR-WS.

Doctoral Consortium Chairs:

Martin Atzmueller, University of Kassel, Germany.

Late-Breaking Results
(Deadline: May 23rd, 2014)

The LBR session is a venue for early stage research results, as compared to the full-paper track of the conference. Late-breaking results contain original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, preliminary results, industry showcases, and system prototypes. LBR papers can cover any of the 3 full paper tracks listed for Hypertext 2014 (see ACM Hypertext 2014: Conference Tracks). Submissions will be assessed based on their originality and novelty, potential contribution to the research field, potential impact in particular use cases, and the usefulness of presented experiences, as well as their overall readability.

Please note that late-breaking papers are not a second chance for those who did not make it to the main track. Only new researches with up-to-date results are considered as late-breaking results. Accepted papers will be presented at the poster session during Hypertext 2014 and will be published open-access at CEUR-WS.
