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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
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:

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 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/

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,

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:

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.
