*** Hypertext 2008 ***

*** Linking people and places ***

June 19-21, 2008 - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

In 2007, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the ACM Conference on 
Hypertext and Hypermedia series which is the acknowledged venue for 
high quality peer-reviewed research on linking. The web, the semantic 
web and Web 2.0 are all manifestations of the success of the link. 
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.

The conference will take place June in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 
directly after ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries 2008 
( Both conferences are hosted by the School 
of Information Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh.

This year's technical conference consists of four independent tracks, 
each with their own track committee, coordinated by an overall 
Program Chair.

1.	Information Linking and Organization (Chairs: Paul de Bra and 
Frank Shipman)
2.	Social Linking (Chairs: Filippo Menczer and Ciro Cattuto)
3.	Applications of  Hypertext (Chair: Erik Duval)
4.	Hypertext, Culture, and Communication  (Chair: Mark Bernstein)

The technical paper deadline has now passed, but the poster deadline 

The Program Committee for Hypertext 2008 is now inviting submissions 
of original and unpublished Posters and Demonstrations. Proposals 
will take the form of 2 pages which will appear in the formal 
Conference Proceedings and be published by ACM and be available 
through the ACM Digital Library. Presentation will take the form of a 
one minute ³poster pitch² followed by poster sessions within the 
conference schedule.

The details about the submission format and process can be found on 
the Hypertext 2008 submission page
