CONFERENCE SCOPE
-----------------------

The ACM Hypertext conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications.

The theme of Hypertext 2020 is “HYPERTEXT for Social Good”. This motto of the 31st ACM Hypertext conference goes hand in hand with the growing importance of ensuring technological inventions and innovations have a positive impact on the users, as well as the society at large. We are particularly interested in work that is timely, activist, or community-centered. Hypertext 2019 turned some important stones to reunify different hypertext research directions and communities. Hypertext 2020 will proudly carry forward this aim. Hypertext 2020 will therefore consist of 4 different tracks that broadly appeal to interdisciplinary challenges. In addition to this, HT2020 will also host a Doctoral Consortium, and a Blue Sky Ideas track to facilitate the presentation and discussion of grand visions for the future of Hypertext systems. This is a perfect time to join in, reflect our common roots, and discuss how we can jointly address our current and future challenges.

Hypertext 2020 is co-locating with the Electronic Literature Conference (ELO’20) organized in Orlando, Florida between July 13-15. The conference will take place at the downtown University of Central Florida campus, with hotel accommodations available next door to the conference venues.

ACM HYPERTEXT 2019 - TEAR DOWN THE WALL
---------------------------------------

30th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media (HT'19)
17-20 September 2019 | Hof, Germany

https://human.iisys.de/ht2019/
Twitter: @ACMHT - https://twitter.com/ACMHT
Hashtag: #acmht19


2019 - the year of anniversaries: Time to reflect and look ahead.
- 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
- 30th Hypertext Conference
- 30th Anniversary of the WWW
- 20th Anniversary of the first ACM Hypertext Conference in Germany


----------------
CONFERENCE SCOPE
----------------

The ACM Hypertext conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications.

The theme of Hypertext 2019 is "HYPERTEXT - TEAR DOWN THE WALL". This motto of the 30th ACM Hypertext conference goes hand in hand with the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Inspired by the historical events in Germany, Hypertext 2019 aims at reunifying different hypertext research directions and communities. Therefore, apart from the regular research tracks, Hypertext 2019 will feature a research track on 30 Years Hypertext as well as an exhibition/creative track. 2019 will also be the 30th anniversary of the WWW. It is a perfect time to join in, reflect our common roots, and discuss how we can jointly address our current and future challenges.

The conference will take place at the Institute of Information Systems (iisys) at Hof University, Germany. Hof lies midway between Frankfurt and Prague, Munich and Berlin and is very close to the former German-German border, in particular to the village of Mdlareuth, called "little Berlin", which used to be divided by a wall. After exactly 20 years, Hypertext 2019 will take place in Germany again for the 2nd time.

Hypertext 2019 is co-locating with the Adaptivity and User Modeling Workshop (ABIS'19), taking place on Sep 16 at Hof University, and with ACM Document Engineering Conference (DocEng'19) organized in Berlin, Germany, between Sep 23-16.

Advanced Analytics, Intelligence & Processes for Disrupting Operations of Illicit Supply Networks

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in Advanced Analytics, Intelligence and Processes for Disrupting Operations of Illicit Supply Networks. The selected individual will work with Dr. Simske at CSU and interface with the team led by Drs. Kellar and Crawford at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. The incumbent will communicate and work with team members to discern technologies that can:1) automatically collect product pricing information and determine appropriate analytics for quantifying this to identify suspect sales 2) automatically cluster, classify and label licit and illicit operations 3) model the operational and spatial dynamics of illicit networks 4) result in algorithms for determining how illicit networks incent their users 5) generate advanced analytics and meta-analytics to discover central factors in illicit networks 6) provide means to anonymize sales and distribution data in other supply chain and service domains to encourage additional partners to join the program as it moves forward. The current position can leverage modeling tools, web services, data, stakeholder relationships, and institutional knowledge created through this complementary work.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but for full consideration, all materials must be received by November 1, 2018. Please upload the following materials: (1) A cover letter addressing your qualifications; (2) curriculum vitae; (3) a writing sample, (4) transcripts for all graduate study (unofficial versions acceptable for application), and (5) contact information for two professional references who will be required to upload letters to complete your application materials. Letters of recommendation must be uploaded to the system by 11:59 PM on November 1, 2018.

-------------------------------------------------
The 2018 ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media is inviting the submission of research papers, workshop proposals, and tutorial proposals.

The ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media (HT) provides a premium single-track platform for high quality peer-reviewed research on theory, systems and applications of hypertext and social media. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext and social media, including adaptation, personalization, recommendations, user modeling, linked data and semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext, and its application in digital humanities, as well as with interplay between those aspects such as linking stories with data or linking people with resources.

We invite high quality submissions relating to all the above aspects of hypertext and social media, but encourage submissions to align themselves with three broad themes:

- Hyper society, covers digital humanities and connecting/connected people
- Hyper data, covers connected things on the documents, Web, and IoT
- Hyper media, covers connected traditional and non-traditional media

Accepted papers will appear in the Hypertext 2018 Conference Proceedings that will be published by ACM and additionally be made available through the ACM Digital Library. Selected papers from HT18 will be invited to submit an extension to ACM TWEB (http://tweb.acm.org/). Submitted extensions will be reviewed in a fast-tracked process. As traditional, one paper will be selected for the Douglas Englebart best paper award.

Acceptance of the papers will be either as full (regular) or short papers with corresponding oral presentation slots, and at least one author is required to register as presenter. In addition, all authors of accepted papers are invited to prepare a poster that they can present together with accepted demos at Poster and Demos reception.

Papers must report original, previously unpublished results substantiated by experimentation, simulation, analysis, or application. Two submission categories are possible:

-Regular research papers (8 pages, with up to 1 page extra for references, for a total of 9 pages max) discussing mature research results.

-Short papers (4 pages, with up to 1 page extra for references, for a total of 5 pages max) presenting ongoing and preliminary results, system prototypes or industry showcases, or results that do not require more detailed discussion.

Selected regular paper submissions may be recommended for publication as short papers.

Further details on submission for Research Papers, Workshop Proposals, and Tutorial Proposals are available at https://ht.acm.org/ht2018/
