The deadline for all categories of conference submissions has now passed.

However we leave the Call for Papers here for future reference.

Call for Submissions

The Fourteenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia will explore the many dimensions of linking information for human communication, whether in literary texts, semantic knowledge bases, multimedia presentations, web sites, documents, films or multimedia databases. These are just a selection of the stored forms of information being investigated by researchers from diverse disciplines around the world. From the World Wide Web to online documentation aboard aircraft carriers and from distance-learning degree programs to interactive entertainment, hypertext and hypermedia have been transforming our world. The ACM Hypertext Conferences are the foremost international conferences on hypertext and hypermedia, and have brought scholars, researchers, authors, critics and poets together with 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 2003 will continue to provide an environment 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 2003 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.
