POSTERS 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 an ideal opportunity 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.

DEMOS 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 emailed to Sigi Reich (

The following information will be required:

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 the Demo Chair. 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 Demo Chair, or contact the chair directly: Sigi Reich, +43 662 2288 461.

NOTE: All accepted demos and posters will be compiled into a "Hypertext 2001 - Demos and Posters Supplement" booklet that will be available at the conference. Once accepted, we will require you to send us a one page version of your demo/poster.

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
