ACM Hypertext 2012 (Milwaukee, WI, USA)
June 25-28, 2012
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 chairs:

* January 17, 2012: Notification to proposers
* January 25, 2012: The organizers of each workshop send out the Call for Papers

The W3C WAI Research and Development Working Group (RDWG) invites you to share your experiences with metrics for measuring web accessibility beyond basic conformance to standards. In particular, RDWG is looking for valid, reliable, and practical metrics to measure the impact of accessibility issues on people with disabilities. These will be discussed in an online Symposium on 5 December 2011. More information will be available from:

RDWG Symposia bring together researchers and practitioners interested in a particular aspect of web accessibility to advance research in that area. With this Symposium, we will collect current research, synthesize ideas in a teleconference, and provide a roadmap for future work on web accessibility metrics. The Symposium proceedings and report will be available publicly online afterward.

*If you are interested in contributing to this Symposium*, please see the *Call for Papers*.


BooksOnline 2011 - Student registration grants

Student registration grants now available  apply by September 16!

CrossRef has kindly offered to fund a number of registration subsidies for students planning to attend the BooksOnline¹11 workshop. This could be used to add a BooksOnline¹11 workshop registration to an existing conference registration, to fund a new registration to the workshop (without conference attendance), or to subsidize a new conference registration that includes registration to BooksOnline¹11. We particularly encourage applications from students who do NOT have a paper at the workshop, but student authors can also apply. To be eligible, you must be a full-time student, and have a valid registration confirmation number covering the BooksOnline¹11 workshop. Note that the grant only covers the workshop registration fee.

Applications for a grant can be made using the online application form until 16th September. Awardees will be notified by email.


Odysci is a new portal for search and rank of technical papers and peer collaboration, specialized in the computer science, electronics, and related areas. Odysci offers new interesting ways to search and to allow the user to control and narrow the results. For instance, a user can search for papers written by an author while he/she worked at a given place. To find papers written by Leslie Lamport while at SRI, one would search for “lamport@SRI”. Alternatively, a user can search for papers on a given topic written by authors of a given institution. For example, the search "logic synthesis author@"University of California, Berkeley" will return papers on logic synthesis written by UC Berkeley authors. One can also search for papers which received awards. To search for the best papers in the Hypertext conferences, one would use "venue:Hypertext bp:true".
Besides search, the portal also offers: (a) Information about upcoming conferences and deadlines, (b) Lists of best papers (and the ability to search for them), and (c) Comments by experts in different fields (our Online Editors).
