The ACM Hypertext Conference is the main venue for high quality peer-reviewed, double-blind research on "linking" and interconnectivity. The Web, the Semantic Web, Web 2.0 and Social Networks are all manifestations of the success of the link concept.

Technical Tracks:

Hypertext 2010 will consist of three autonomous tracks, each with its own Track Program Committee. These Tracks are intended to represent the spectrum of Hypertext. If you cannot figure out where you fit, submit to the best fitting track or send us email.

Track 1. Social Computing

This track invites papers investigating social processes and practices in Hypermedia and Web 2.0 environments. These include tagging, filtering, voting, editing, trusting, and rating. These social processes result in many types of links between texts, users, concepts, pages, etc. We want to better understand the processes and practices themselves as well as the social, political, and semantic networks that result over time.

Track 2. Adaptive Hypermedia and Applications

This track invites papers reporting on theoretical, empirical, and methodological studies on adaptive hypermedia, including the application of adaptive hypermedia such as self organizing in varying domains and contexts. The scope includes all forms of Web and Hypermedia systems, including user modeling, recommender systems, and e-learning, as well as components of resulting systems (e.g, navigation).

Track 3. - Hypertext in Context

Hypertext tools are indispensable for e-learning and m-learning, and teaching Hypertext as a discipline in its own right -- including literary fiction, new scholarship and digital media -- plays a growing role in education. This track targets hypertext as both a tool and a discipline, as well as focusing on the use of spatial hypertext and Web 2.0 applications such as blogs, wikis and e-portfolios. We hope to highlight our understanding of links as a new component of writing and communication, and to increase our understanding of the way that they are used in multiple domains such as education, research, journalism, and literature.
