Hypertext 2009

Hypertext 2009 - The Twentieth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia
Torino, Italy, June 29 - July 1, 2009

The ACM Hypertext Conference is the main venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on "linking." The Web, the Semantic Web, the Web 2.0, and Social Networks are all manifestations of the success of the link. The Hypertext Conference provides the forum for all research concerning links: their semantics, their presentation, the applications, as well as the knowledge that can be derived from their analysis and their effects on society.

Hypertext 2008, held in Pittsburgh, was a real success. The number of submissions and attendees was up, a successful Student Research Competition took place, and a rejuvenated social linking track added new ideas and connections to the traditional core of the conference.


* Technical tracks paper submission deadline: February 2nd, 2009
* Notification to authors: March 16th, 2009
* Camera-ready (final papers to ACM): April 6th, 2009


Hypertext 2009 will be held from June 29th to July 1st at the Villa Gualino Convention Center, on the hills overlooking Torino.

The timing of Hypertext 2009 provides an excellent opportunity to visit Italy in conjunction with the International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization in Trento (UMAP 2009 - http://umap09.fbk.eu/), and the International Workshop and Conference on Network Science in Venice (NetSci 2009 - http://www.netsci09.net/).


Hypertext 2009 will feature two stellar keynote speakers: Lada Adamic (University of Michigan) is a noted scholar of social networking and the winner of the 2008 Engelbart Award; Ricardo Baeza-Yates is Vice-President of Yahoo! Research for Europe and Latin America, leading the labs in Spain, Chile, and Israel.

The attendees of Hypertext 2009 will also have a chance to experiment with applications mixing real-world data and on-line data. We will deploy active RFID tags in the badges of volunteers and track the real-time relations of physical proximity between the attendees. The data collection and visualization system will be provided by the SocioPatterns project
(http://www.sociopatterns.org) and will expose API methods that allow developers to mash up real-world links between the attendees with other types of linking information from the Web.

In the conference technical program, professionals from academia, industry, and the media will present innovative ideas and tools exploiting the broad range of links increasingly connecting people, information, communities, and structures. Research topics will be organized into three tracks:

Track 1. Information Structure and Presentation (Chairs: Peter Brusilovsky and Cristina Gena)
Track 2. People, Resources, and Annotations (Chairs: Andreas Hotho and Vittorio Loreto)
Track 3. Hypertext and Community (Chairs: Mark Bernstein and Antonio Pizzo)

For additional information on the track and the Program Committee, please visit http://www.ht2009.org/track3.php


Papers must report new results substantiated by experimentation, simulation, analysis, or application. Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original, not previously published works. Submission categories may include regular research papers (max 10 pages) discussing mature work, and short papers (max 5 pages) describing preliminary results of on-going work or novel thought-provoking ideas.
