HYPERTEXT 2001 - THE TWELFTH ACM CONFERENCE ON HYPERTEXT AND HYPERMEDIA

>From online documentation aboard aircraft carriers to distance
learning degree programs to interactive entertainment, hypertext and 
hypermedia have already begun to transform our world. The foremost 
international conference on hypertext and hypermedia, the 
International Hypertext conferences have brought together scholars, 
researchers, and practitioners from a diverse array of 
disciplines-including computing, literature, law, art, medicine, 
business, journalism, philosophy, psychology, and engineering-to 
consider the form, role, and impact of hypertext and hypermedia. 
Hypertext 2001 will continue to provide a forum where attendees can 
exchange and discuss ideas on hypermedia, as well as its design and 
use in a variety of domains, while also considering the 
transformative power of hypermedia and its ability to potentially 
alter the way we read, write, argue, work, exchange information, or 
entertain ourselves.

Hypertext 2001 welcomes discussions from designers and users of 
hypermedia applications and works in academia, business, 
entertainment, and industry. Here attendees can discuss all aspects 
of hypermedia, ranging from navigational aids, time, and 
infrastructures to digital libraries, interactive literature, virtual 
and augmented reality environments, gaming, human-computer 
interaction, software engineering, computer-supported collaborative 
work, and, of course, the World Wide Web. A particular focus of this 
conference will be on papers dealing with experiences and evaluation 
of hypertexts. Formats for presentation include papers, panels and 
technical briefings, short papers and posters, demonstrations, 
exhibits, courses, workshops, and a doctoral consortium.

Topics include but are not limited to:
o Interactive games and entertainment
o Effects of hypermedia on business or industry
o Experiences with the application of hypermedia
o Innovative hypertexts and novel uses of hypertext and hypermedia
o Web-based hypermedia drama
o Collaborative hypermedia technology and applications
o Hypermedia in virtual environments and augmented reality environments
o Hypermedia in fiction, scholarship, and technical writing
o Hypermedia in education and training
o Empirical studies and hypermedia evaluation
o Hypermedia and time: narratives and storyboarding
o Hypertext rhetoric and criticism
o Integration and open hypermedia architectures
o Large-scale distributed hypermedia
o Structuring hypermedia documents for reading and retrieval
o Theories, models, architectures, standards, and frameworks
o Hypermedia user interfaces
o Object-oriented hypermedia
o Hypermedia infrastructure technologies
o Hypermedia middleware and components
o Hypermedia authoring
o Hypermedia for the Internet

For information on previous conferences, see http://www.ht00.org and 
http://www.acm.org/sigweb.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
MENTORING

Entering a new field can be difficult for both students deciding on 
their new topic of research to researchers and practitioners already 
established in other fields. To help researchers overcome the hurdle 
of entering the hypermedia field, Hypertext 2001 provides a mentoring 
service as an offer to newcomers (authors who have never published a 
full paper in earlier Hypertext proceedings).

Mentors are experienced persons from the hypermedia community who 
have volunteered to assist new authors in entering the field of 
hypertext and hypermedia. A mentor is not a co-author and will not 
assist in the actual writing of the paper. Instead, a mentor will 
read a preliminary version of the paper and provide friendly and 
constructive comments on how the paper, in his or her opinion, can be 
improved to better match the style of papers that are usually 
accepted at Hypertext conferences. Thus, the author still has full 
control over and responsibility for what is written in the paper.

The mentoring process is strictly confidential:

* Submitted papers will bear no indication of whether or not a mentor was
   requested.
* None of the program committee members (except for the program 
chair) will know
   which authors requested a mentor.
* The mentor will not reveal the things that have been discussed with 
the author.

Mentoring requests: Email information about the paper including the 
title, the author name(s), and the author affiliation(s), contact 
information (mailing address, telephone, fax, email), an abstract of 
about 200 words, and several topical keywords to the Mentoring Chair.

Contact Information
For further details, or to submit a proposal, please contact the 
Mentoring chair at: mentor {AT} ht01.org or send requests directly to the 
chair:
Rick Furuta, furuta {AT} bush.cs.tamu.edu

Important Dates:
As soon as possible and no later than 31 December 2000 (since the 
paper deadline is 16 February 2001).

SHORT PAPERS

Where full papers tend to involve fully fledged discussions and 
analyses, short papers are better suited to specific issues or 
aspects of hypertexts. Short papers tend to be both less formal and a 
higher proportion of short papers are accepted for the conference 
than are full papers. For examples of short papers at the Hypertext 
2000 conference, see: (http://www.ht00.org).

Submissions

Short paper submissions for HT'01 are due May 10, 2000. No late 
submissions will be accepted. In addition, HT'01 will accept 
electronic submissions only. PDF submissions are highly preferred, 
however Postscript submissions will also be accepted as long as all 
fonts required to view the document are embedded. Short papers are to 
be two pages in the conference format (see the content of the 
templates provided for further explanations of the format.)

Short paper submissions will be accepted starting February 1, 2000 
through the conference web site found at http://www.ht01.org/

Templates

Authors are strongly encouraged to use one of the existing document 
templates to create their paper. HT 2001 requires submissions to be 
in "final format," to promote a uniform style for the final 
proceedings and to ease the revision process for accepted 
manuscripts. Templates will be available from http://www.ht01.org.

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

Submissions

The HT01 Doctoral Consortium is an opportunity for a group of PhD 
students to explore the common ground amongst their research 
interests together with established researchers. The objectives of 
the consortium are to provide a setting for mutual feedback on 
participants' current research and future direction and to develop a 
supportive community of scholars and a spirit of collaborative 
research.

The Consortium will consist of a Workshop held during the conference 
and a Virtual Workshop held via the Internet in the weeks preceding 
the conference. There will also be social events held at the 
conference. Doctoral students in an advanced stage of their studies 
(beyond proposal stage) are invited to apply for participation in 
this event. About a dozen students will be invited to participate. 
Each student will be expected to give a research presentation at the 
workshop and to prepare materials to be distributed for the Virtual 
Workshop. To apply, email a CV, a letter of recommendation from your 
advisor/supervisor and a position statement of about 1000 words to 
the Doctoral Consortium Chair,

Contact Information

For further details, or to submit a proposal, please contact the 
Doctoral Consortium Chair at: doctor {AT} ht01.org or contact the chair 
directly:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
DEMO & POSTER PROPOSALS

Submissions

What is a good poster?
Posters are a great way to communicate more informally with the 
hypertext community. Unlike papers, which must represent finished 
work that is a substantial contribution to the field, a Poster is a 
great way to test new ideas, generate interest in a research area, or 
describe useful or interesting work that is not substantial enough 
for a paper presentation. Posters are interactive! Posters are 
displayed throughout the conference, but there will be a specific 
period during which poster presenters will be asked to be present to 
answer questions on the poster topic.

What is a good demo?
One that shows something that people haven't seen before, or have 
never seen implemented as well before. Product demos are welcome, as 
well as demonstrations of research projects. Any technology -- 
hardware or software -- is fair game that has the potential to 
enhance the perception and management of interlinked information.
Demo and Poster proposals should be submitted as 2-page descriptions 
using the conference paper format. These should be supplied as 
Postscript, PDF or Word Files, and transmitted by FTP to 
ftp1.dynamicdiagrams.com and placed in the /pub/ht00 directory. This 
directory allows files to be written, but not listed. Submissions 
should be have filenames consisting of the contact author's family 
name, an underscore and their first name, followed by an optional 
number (in case of problems with FTP or the need to transmit 
corrected versions of a file). For instance I could submit files as 
Durand_David1.ps, Durand_David2.ps, etc.

Once the file is correctly uploaded to the FTP server, send email to 
demo {AT} ht01.org with the following information:

* Author's name(s) and affiliation(s)
* Title of the Poster or Demo
* Mailing address
* Name and email address of the primary contact for the submission.
* Demo presenters should also describe any network, power, or 
projection needs in their email. We cannot supply computers for demos.

If you expect that your demo may involve special electrical, space, 
or network resources, please describe these as clearly as possible in 
your initial submission email to demo {AT} ht01.org. We will be sending 
additional details, and perhaps asking additional questions, once we 
have reviewed the submissions.

Contact Information

For further details, or to submit a proposal, please contact the 
Posters and Demos Chair at: demo {AT} ht01.org or contact the chair 
directly:
Sigi Reich at sre {AT} ifs.uni-linz.ac.at

Important Dates:
May 10th, 2001: Posters and demonstrations due

BERNIES

Following their success last year, the Bernies Awards will again be 
presented at ACM's Hypertext 2001 Conference. The Bernie Award is 
presented to the Best Hypertext by an >>Engineer or Scientist<<. 
Although literary hypertext is a successful and growing field, the 
writings of people from technical disciplines make remarkably little 
use of links. The Bernies provide an informal challenge to focus the 
enthusiasm of the hypertext community to Get Linking!

Open to any Engineer or Scientist, particularly those who attend 
Hypertext, Digital Libraries or Web conferences, the challenge of The 
Bernies is to submit a short hypertext which makes good use of links. 
The hypertext, which must be viewable with a standard Web browser, 
can be from any genre, can be on any topic and can be simple text, 
simple media (speech, music, video) or a complex multimedia 
presentation. The sole criteria on which the entries will be judged 
is how well they use hypertext links. Creativity, humour and brevity 
are encouraged, but appropriate and inventive linking are the focus.

Submissions

Submissions should be made by June 15th, after which date all entries 
will be opened to public display and votes will be collected from the 
hypertext community. Full submission instructions can be found on The 
Bernies Homepage, http://www.bernies.org/ or via http://www.ht01.org. 
This award, hugely prestigious within the hypertext community, has NO 
CASH EQUIVALENT. The award will be presented at the Hypertext 2001 
Conference.

Contact Information

For further details, please contact the Bernies Chairs at: 
bernies {AT} ht01.org or contact the Bernies chairs directly:
Les Carr, lac {AT} ecs.soton.ac.uk

Important Dates:
June 15th, 2001: Bernie submissions due

-------------------------------------------------------------------
EXHIBITIONS

Exhibits are intended to demonstrate one or more commercial products 
of interest to the conference community. They differ from 
demonstrations in that they need not make an original research 
contribution.

Exhibitors will receive a draped table and a small amount of floor 
space (exact sizes are still to be determined). Exhibits may run the 
entire duration of the main conference program (8am-7pm August 14-15; 
8am-12pm Fri, August 16). Exhibits will be placed alongside research 
demonstrations and posters. The conference reception will be held in 
the exhibit/demonstration/poster room(s).

The cost for one exhibit space is $500 for the entire conference. 
Exhibit space may not be rented for less than the duration of the 
entire conference. No security for the exhibits is provided, although 
a small number of conference staff will be available at all times. A 
reasonable amount of power outlets will be provided. Internet 
connectivity is planned, but cannot yet be guaranteed. The names of 
all exhibitors, their contact information, and a small amount of 
product information will be made available in an exhibits guide, 
which will be given to every conference participant.

Exhibit proposals will be reviewed for relevance to the conference. 
To submit an exhibit proposal, please send an e-mail to the General 
Chair at gc {AT} ht01.org.

In your mail, please provide the following information:

* Your name and contact info (e-mail, phone, fax, post address)
* Your company name (and URL, if applicable)
* A brief description of the product(s) you wish to exhibit
* A description of the resources you will need (how many exhibit 
spaces, power outlets, internet connections, etc.)
