==================== CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS =======================
In conjunction with Hypertext 2015, the 26th ACM Conference on Hypertext
and Social Media.
Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus, Cyprus
September 2-4, 2015

March 13, 2015: Tutorial and workshops 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.
The 26th ACM
Conference on Hypertext and Social Media conference is pleased
to invite
proposals for tutorials to be held with the conference.


The goal of tutorial
is to present state-of-the-art theories, methodologies and
techniques from
experts in the field. Topics of interest should be related
to the main
conference tracks, in relation on novel aspects to be examined
in deep.
Interdisciplinary tutorials are also encouraged.We expect
proposals for
half-day tutorials.


The goals of the workshops are to provide 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 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.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 (TUTORIALS) =========================
The tutorial proposals – not longer than 3 pages - have to be sent by
email to the workshop chairs, and must contain the following information:
- Title of the tutorial
- Tutorial presenters (affiliation, contact details, homepage, and prior
experiences with tutorial organization, if any).
- Keywords (describing the main themes of the tutorial) (from 3 to 5)
- Abstract (up to 70 words)
- Description of the tutorial (topics and goals of the tutorial)
(up to 500 words)
- Motivation  (why the topic is of interest for the conference audience)
- Tutorial format (lessons, exercises, etc)
- Intended audience and expected attendance (with historical data of past
versions of the tutorial, if available)
- Previous editions of the tutorial (if applicable) (URLs, conference it
was
co-located with, number of participants , and any other relevant
information)

The organizers of accepted tutorials are then expected to prepare a
tutorial Web
Site with the information about the tutorial.



====================== PROPOSAL FORMAT (WORKSHOPS) =========================
The workshop proposals – not longer than 5 pages - have to be sent by email
to
the workshop chairs, and must contain the following information:

- Title of the workshop and acronym
- Workshop organizers (affiliation, contact details, homepage, and prior
experiences with workshop organization.
- Keywords (describing the main themes of the workshop) (from 3 to 5)
- Abstract (up to 70 words)
- Description of the workshop (topics and goals of the workshop) (up to 500
 words)
- 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
- Requested duration (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)

The Workshop Proceedings will be published in the ACM Hypertext Extended
Proceedings. If the organizers have addition plans for dissemination (for
example,
a special issue of a journal) this needs to specified in the proposal.

=============== ORGANIZATION OF WORKSHOP===============
After the acceptance of a workshop proposal, the organizer(s) should:

- Create and distribute a Call for Papers and a Call for Participation;

- Create a Web page for the workshop, with the call for papers and the
information about the workshop organization and timeline.  The link of the
web
site will be  published on the Conference Web site;
- Create a Program Committee;
- Review and select contributions to be included in the workshop
 proceedings
(at least 2 reviewers for each paper);
- Schedule and coordinate the workshop activities.
