27th ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media
10-13 July 2016 - Halifax, Canada


Submission deadline: 19 February 2016


The ACM Hypertext conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed research on hypertext theory, systems and applications. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research including social media, semantic web, dynamic and computed hypertext and hypermedia as well as narrative systems and applications.

Hypertext 2016 will focus on missing links on the WWW: how can the Hypertext paradigm and research inspire and improve the Web? Which missing links (and linking paradigms) can improve connections, communication and collaboration? Apart from the regular research tracks, Hypertext 2016 will feature a creative track.

The conference will take place at the campus of Dalhousie University in Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia and the major cultural centre of Canada’s Atlantic provinces.


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 include:
- Regular research papers (max 10 pages + references) discussing mature work.
- Short papers (max 5 pages + references) describing preliminary results of on-going work or novel thought-provoking ideas.
- Posters and demos (max 2 pages + references) presenting innovative research ideas, preliminary results, system prototypes or industry showcases.

Submission deadline: 19 February 2016

Accepted papers will appear in the Hypertext 2016 Conference Proceedings that will be published by ACM and additionally be made available through the ACM Digital Library.

Collaboration in the Social Web
Track Chair: Weigang Wang, University of Manchester, UK

In the past few years, we have witnessed the proliferation of social media and mobile devices.  Mobile social media provide touch points to engage families, friends, group members, and communities, offer entry points to the web, and keep them connected in a Social Web.

Therefore, this track includes the analysis and exploitation of links between topics, people and activities in social media and beyond.  Apart from various methods and practices using existing social media systems to support collaborative activities, social groupware (or a combination of social media and groupware, , such as MobileMeeting) is emerging, which integrates social media interaction into a structured collaboration process and adds various structure and computational support to social media.

Narrative, Adaptation and Multimedia Storytelling
Track Chair: David Millard, University of Southampton, UK

Hypertext and Web systems are fundamentally about communication between people, and people are storytellers. In this track we seek submissions covering a broad range of topics around new media and digital storytelling, from both the technological and human points of view. We expect to include papers around technologies to support content curation and creation, dynamic linking and navigation, for example by exploiting the Web of linked and open data.

User Experience and the Web
Track Chair: Herre van Oostendorp, Utrecht University, the Netherlands

This track seeks original submissions that either contribute to the overall understanding of the relationships between cognitive factors and cognitive processes when interacting with the Web or describe novel systems and applications that make interacting with the Web an easy and effortless process.
