Hypertext 2008

June 19-21, 2008 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Hypertext Conference provides the forum for research that considers links, their semantics, their presentation, the applications they have been put to, the knowledge that can be derived from their analysis and their effect on society. If information is connected, then the connection is called a link: the Hypertext Conference is concerned with all research concerning links.

Hypertext 2008 was an exciting and intellectually stimulating conference. The event featured more than 30 papers, posters, demos, and workshops which focused on key conference themes:

Our keynote speakers examined leading-edge subjects in the linkage field.  Fascinating presentations were offered by Bernardo Huberman of HP Labs and Prof. Jon Kleinberg of Cornell University. Paper topics ranged from assembling social semantic networks to dynamic modeling of tagging systems to enhancing access to open corpus educational content.
