ACM Hypertext 2009 will be running at least two workshops, taking place
on the 29th of June before the start of the main conference. The purpose
of the workshops is to provide a more informal setting where
participants can exchange ideas on a focused topic and suggest
directions for future research. As such, they also offer a good
opportunity for (young) researchers to present their work and to obtain
feedback from an interested community. Acceptance of workshop proposals
will be based on the organizer's experience and background in the topic,
and on the relevance of the subject matter w.r.t. the topics addressed
in the main conference.

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the organizer's
experience and background in the topic, and on the relevance of the
subject matter w.r.t. the topics addressed in the main conference.

- Arrangements for the organization of the workshop, including a brief
outline of the workshop describing anticipated format, possible session

ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors and high quality papers
along with an estimation of the number of participants;
