Call for Workshops & Tutorials

Giuseppe Abrami and Mark Anderson

February 2019


CfP Workshops

The workshops aim to create a more informal framework for an innovative exchange of views, exchange experiences, present ideas, promote the research community and identify open problems and/or directions for future research. At the same time, they also provide a good opportunity for researchers and junior researchers to present their work and receive feedback from an interested community in an interactive and constructive atmosphere. Proposals are particularly appreciated on new topics related to the main topics of the conference, but may also include other (new) topics that may be of interest to the hypertext community. There are no limits on creativity.

Acceptance of workshop proposals will be based on the experience and background of the organisers 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. We generally prefer “interactive” workshops, which ensure a richer active interaction between the participants and offer plenty of space for controversial and stimulating discussions. Potential proposers are invited to discuss their ideas with the workshop chairs before working out a detailed proposal.

Send your workshop proposals (in PDF format) by email to the workshop/tutorial chairs: abrami@em.uni-frankfurt.de and Mark.W.R.Anderson@soton.ac.uk, 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 2019
  • Workshop organisers’ bios (1-2 paragraphs per organiser)
  • 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

Deadline for workshop submission is March 24, 2019.

CfP Tutorials

As part of the Hypertext 2019 program, in addition, we cordially invite proposals for tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors in academia, industry, and government agencies. We expressly invite students to present their work on the conference topics as a tutorial.

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 workshop proposals (in PDF format) by email to the workshop/tutorial chairs: abrami@em.uni-frankfurt.de and Mark.W.R.Anderson@soton.ac.uk, 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 2019
  • 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.

Deadline for tutorial submission is May 19, 2019.
