Hypertext 2017 (HT2017)

July 4 - 7, 2017, Prague, Czech Republic
Workshop and Tutorial proposals deadline: January 13, 2017


Workshop Proposals
The goals of the workshops are to provide a more informal setting for exchanging opinions, to share experiences, presenting ideas, foster the 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, related to the main conference themes, but may also include other (novel) topics, which might be of interest for the hypertext 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. 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. Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with the workshop chair before working out a detailed proposal.

Send your workshop proposals (in PDF format) by email to the workshop/tutorial chair, with the following information:
*  Title of the workshop and suggested acronym
*  Keywords (describing the main themes)
*  Abstract
*  Description of the workshop (topics and goals)
*  Relevance of the workshop to Hypertext 2017
*  Workshop organizers bios (1-2 paragraphs per organizer)
*  Motivation (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
*  Workshop and submission formats
*  Length (half day or full day- in this case, motivation for the need of a full day)
*  Previous editions of the workshop series, if applicable (URLs, conference it was co-located with, number of registrants, number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and any other relevant information)
*  Any plan for further publication (e.g., special issue in journals)
*  Initial list of (potential) members of the program committee

Tutorial Proposals
As part of the Hypertext 2017 program, in addition, we cordially invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors in academia, industry, and government agencies. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research and ideas, innovative developments, and novel applications in a specific aspect of hypertext and social media, but proposals are especially encouraged on emerging topics, related to the main conference themes.

Send your tutorial proposal (in PDF format) by email to the workshop/tutorial chair with the following information:
*  Title of the tutorial
*  Keywords (describing the main themes of the tutorial)
*  Abstract
*  Description of the tutorial (topics and goals)
*  Tutorial presenters biographies  (1-2 paragraphs per presenter)
*  Length of tutorial (1.5 or 3 hours)
*  Expected background and prerequisite of audience
*  Relevance of the tutorial to Hypertext 2017
*  A list of references/resources to be covered in the tutorial
*  Previous editions of the tutorial, if presenters have given similar tutorials elsewhere

The accepted proposal presenters should provide comprehensive tutorial notes or slides to the tutorial audience free of charge.
