ACM Hypertext 2011 Conference
Eindhoven, June 6-9, 2011

\___  Scope

The ACM Hypertext Conference is the main venue for high quality peer-reviewed
research on hypermedia theory, systems and practices. The Web, Semantic Web,
Web 2.0, Social Networks and collaborative hypermedia environments are all
manifestations of the success of hypermedia research.
The Hypertext Conference provides the forum for all types of research 
hypermedia such as: advanced structuring mechanisms, narratives and 
system architectures, social tagging, context-aware and adaptive hypermedia as
well as the knowledge that can be derived from analysis of effects of 
on society. The conference is organized around 4 tracks spanning the field:

Track 1: Dynamic and Computed Hypermedia
Track 2: Emerging Structures and Ubiquitous Hypermedia
Track 3: Social Media (Linking People and Things)
Track 4: Interaction, Narrative, and Storytelling

These tracks are described further below.

\___  Important Dates

     * January 29, 2011:   Full and Short paper submissions due
     * March 15, 2011: Notification of acceptance

Track 1: Dynamic and Computed Hypermedia

\___  Objectives

In modern hypertext and Web systems hypermedia structure and content is
increasingly generated, processed, filtered, adjusted or personalised
before it reaches its users. The Dynamic and Computed Hypermedia Track
targets formal study of models and systems that support these processes,
the subsequent interactions with users, and the broader consequences for
organisations and society.

It covers Open Hypermedia, Adaptive Hypermedia, Computational Narrative
and all forms of Web-Based Information Systems. We also welcome work that
explores how these systems can be applied in diverse domains (such as
Education, Health, Journalism, Government, Media, etc.) and that pushes
forward the state of the art in classical and advanced applications.

The aim of this track is to bring researchers together to discuss models,
architecture, applications, properties, or theory in general, about dynamic
and computed hypertext and hypermedia.

\___  Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Open Hypermedia
- Computational Hypertext Models
- User Modelling for Adaptive Hypertext and Hypermedia
- Web and Link Analysis
- Automatic Link Generation
- Adaptive Hypertext Frameworks, Toolkits and Applications
- Adaptive Authoring and Design
- Usability and Scrutability of Adaptive and Dynamic Hypermedia
- Novel Information Interfaces and Navigation Support
- Dynamic Ubiquitous Systems and Applications
- Enhancing Hyperspace with Generated Recommendations
- Personalisation for Web and Hypertext
- Adaptive Educational Hypermedia
- Enterprise Information Systems
- Automatic Classification and Metadata Systems
- Narrative Generation and Presentation Systems
- Intelligent Information/Knowledge Systems
- Hypertext Challenges for Trust, Security, Performance, Scalability

Track 2: Emerging Structures and Ubiquitous Hypermedia

Just as hypermedia is no longer limited to the link, it is no longer bound to
the desktop. This track will explore how we may expand the possibilities
and opportunities created by the combination of hypermedia and the 
physical world.
This includes hypermedia systems utilising context and location,
mobile (web) platforms, embedded sensors, pervasive information systems,
as well as models, architectures, user interfaces, evaluations, and theory
underpinning such systems.  Likewise, today's information universe is
too vast to structure effectively in conventional ways, and we need new
sense making constructs to enable us to discover and handle emergent
patterns of information.  We welcome contributions on topics such as
spatial hypermedia, information analysis, emergent or self-organising 
large scale knowledge management, and analysis of such systems.

\___  Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Argumentation Interfaces
- Authoring Interfaces
- location- and Context-aware Hypermedia
- Creating Hypermedia in the Field
- Information Presentation, Management, and Sharing Tools
- Interactive Information Visualizations and Explorations
- Mobile and Situated Platforms for Hypermedia
- Mobile Web and Mobile Web 2.0,
- New Structural Domains
- Pervasive Hypermedia and Information Systems
- Spatial Hypertext
- Spatial Hypertext Engines
- Ubiquitous and Calm Information Spaces
- Visual Forms of Communication
- Visual Representations For Learning And Education

Track 3: Social Media (Linking People and Things)

\___  Objectives

Web 2.0 applications such as social networking platforms, wikis, blogs, and
collaborative tools for tagging, voting, commenting, and rating have rapidly
gained broad audiences. The reason for their success lies mainly in the fact
that no specific skills are required from the participants. The social activity
within these systems results in many types of links between people, documents,
products, media, concepts, etc. The motivation and interaction patterns behind
the usage of social media are of particular research interest. The objective of
this track is to gain deeper insights into the world of social media by new
ways of analysis and modeling. Research areas like Social Network Analysis,
Data Mining, Information Retrieval, Complex Systems, Information Extraction,
Natural Language Processing, Semantic Web, Library and Information Sciences,
and Hypermedia Systems have been working for a while in this domain. In the
HT 2011 track on Social Media, researchers from these and related areas are
invited to further advance the state of the art.

\___  Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

     - Analysis and modeling of network structure and dynamics
     - Discovering social structures and communities
     - Explicit vs. inferred social links (e.g. mining query logs)
     - Co-evolution of social, information, and semantic networks
     - Models of propagation and influence in web 2.0 systems
     - Models of expertise and trust in web 2.0 systems
     - Critical mass and incentives for social participation (e.g. games)
     - Web 2.0 technologies for recommender systems and personalization
     - Social search, information retrieval in the web 2.0
     - detection and prediction of trends and user behaviour
     - Web 2.0 based ontology learning and analysis of emergent semantics
     - Linguistic analysis of social media
     - Mapping and visualization of social spaces and networks
     - Discovery and prevention of spam, fraud, misuse and other forms 
of social abuse
     - Privacy challenges
     - Mobile communities
     - Applications of any of the above methods and technologies

We also encourage submissions which relate research results from other areas to
the topics of the track.

Track 4: Interaction, Narrative, and Storytelling

For this track we solicit papers describing approaches in digital 
storytelling -
fiction and non-fiction - that address the challenges posed by the changes in
information distribution and interaction between people, social networks,
locations, and institutions. We are in particular interested in approaches
that make use of data stores rich in narrative material, such as 
YouTube, Flickr,
other semantic rich environments on the web, and digital libraries.
We look for work that provides new insights in presentation challenges posed
by technologies such as mobile phones or media tablets. Emphasis will be given
to work including but not limited to:

- Techniques for interactive storytelling
- Story generation and plot management engines
- Interactive digital storytelling: theories, methods, and concepts
- Experience design for interactive storytelling
- Hyperdrama
- Exploitation of blogs, Flickr, Youtube, Twitter and other media stores
  for storytelling
- Novel narrative forms inspired by new technology
- Storytelling and augmented reality
- Collaborative environments for interactive storytelling
- Interactive and pro-active authoring environments
- Story generation and plot management engines for mobile environments
- Interactive storytelling and gaming
- Domain specific digital narrative applications, e.g. for historical research,
  in teaching and technical documentation.
- Hypertext: writing, design and engineering
