=============== CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS ================

In conjunction with Hypertext 2014, the 25th ACM Conference on Hypertext and
Social Media.
Santiago, Chile, September 1-4, 2014

February 21, 2014: Workshop proposals due

The ACM Hypertext conference focuses on all aspects of modern
hypertext research
including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and
hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with the 25th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social
Media conference.

Hypertext 2014 workshops will provide participants with opportunities to
discuss and explore emerging areas of Hypertext and Social Media with
fellow students, researchers, and practitioners from Industry and Academia.
The goals of theworkshops are to provide a a more informal setting for
exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting ideas, foster
research community and identify open problems and/or explore 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 in an interactive atmosphere.

Proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics, somehow related to
the main conference tracks (links and connection between people, open data
and the semantic of things, user experience and adaptive linking), but are
not limited to other (novel) topics which might be of interest for the
hypertext community. Acceptance ofworkshop 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.

We welcome proposals for different types of workshops, from working groups
on a specific topic to more traditional conference-like workshops. However,
we prefer interactive workshops that guarantee richer active interactions
among participants and provide significant room for controversial and
stimulating discussions.

We preferentially would rather proposals for half-day workshops. The need
for a full-day workshop should be motivated by some particular reason.
Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with  the workshop chair
before working out a detailed proposal.

===========================PROPOSAL FORMAT =============================

The workshop proposals – not longer than 5 pages - have to be sent by email
to theworkshop chairs, and must contain the following information:

- Motivation  (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
- Workshop format (paper presentations, invited talks, panels, demo,
discussion, etc)
- Submissions format (position papers, research papers, demo, poster,
presentations..) and, for each type of submission, specify the features
(length of the papers, template, etc)
- Intended audience and expected attendance (with historical data of past
versions of the workshop, if available)
- Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee
