The ACM Hypertext conference is a premium venue for high quality peer-reviewed
research on hypertext theory, systems, applications, publishing, artwork and
related practices. It is concerned with all aspects of modern hypertext research
including social and intelligent media, narrative systems and applications,
authoring, reading and publishing hypertext, workflows and infrastructures as
well as reflections and approaches.

All accepted contributions will be published by ACM and will be available in the
Proceedings via the ACM Digital Library. Selected contributions will be invited
to submit an expanded version after the conference to a special issue of the New
Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia.

Submissions are welcome in the following tracks:

Interactive Media: Art and Design
Track chair Dr Sam Brooker (Richmond American University London, UK)

This track is dedicated to papers that explore creative expression through
digital technology. Submissions may showcase new approaches to – or applications
of – interactive media technology for creative expression, or evaluate existing
work from a new perspective. Hybrid presentations that mix theory and practice
are welcome, though work should be rooted in hypertext as method or approach.
Topics include but not limited to:
•           Demonstrations: Live exhibition or exploration of a new or existing
creative work.
•           Critical analysis: Reflection on or discussion of pre-existing works
or theoretical approaches.
•           Traversals: Demonstrations performed on historically appropriate
platforms, with participation and commentary by the authors of the works.
•           Interdisciplinary creative work: Evaluation or demonstration of
creative work that crosses disciplinary boundaries

Authoring, Reading, Publishing
Track chair Dr Leah Henrickson (University of Leeds, UK)

This track is dedicated to exploring how hypertext has transformed authoring,
reading, and publishing by disrupting, subverting, or complementing book and
media culture and practice. Submissions may focus on specific case studies or
theories of new emerging practices, rhetorical analyses, or methodological
reflections that take inspiration from fields such as book history, digital
humanities and/or media studies.
Topics include, but not limited to:
•           Authorship: Contextualising the production of hypertexts.
•           Book history: Historically-informed frameworks, theories, and
concepts for understanding hypertextual production, dissemination, and
•           Digital scholarly editions and adaptations: Hypertextual
representations and reconceptualisations of extant texts.
•           Digital storytelling and electronic literature: How hypertexts are
used to communicate ideas and facilitate alternative textual experiences.
•           Reading practices and reader response: How hypertexts are read (or
not read) and interpreted.
•           Rhetorics and poetics: How hypertexts are framed in popular and
scholarly discourse, as well as theoretical considerations on forms of
expression supported by hypertextual formats.
•           Text, paratext, and multimodality: Manifestations and effects of
digital forms of intra- and intertextual connectivity.,

Workflows and Infrastructures
Track chair Dr Davide Picca (Université de Lausanne, CH)

This track is dedicated to hypertext systems and their professional applications
to the GLAM field  in order to facilitate access to cultural knowledge. The main
purpose is to illustrate through the different contributions to the track, how
STEM disciplines can help and support the preservation and dissemination of
tangible and intangible cultural resources. This track welcomes contributions
that present real-world applications of hypertext systems, with a focus on the
benefits, challenges, and gaps that emerge from daily practice in fields of
study such as (but not limited to) Digital Museology, Intangible Cultural
Heritage applications and NLP approaches to cultural resources.
Topics include, but not limited to:
•           Semantic knowledge: How formal ontologies and formal modelling can
contribute to organise cultural knowledge
•           GLAM applications: Pipelines and digital curations for restoration
and preservation of cultural artefacts
•           Digital Museology: Innovations, trends as well as practical
challenges encountered  in the fields of museology
•           Intangible Cultural Heritage applications: How Big Data workflows
and digital transformation methods can be applied to cultural objects
•           NLP approaches to cultural resources: Computational semantics and
pragmatics, machine translation and multilingual NLP for cultural objects

Social and Intelligent Media
Track chair Dr Grégoire Burel (Knowledge Media Institute, UK)

The social and intelligent media track is dedicated to the understanding and
modelling of sociotechnical systems and their role in shaping communication and
information access, both virtually and offline. Submissions should consider any
online systems that include socially and AI-mediated information such as social
networks, recommender systems, online publication tools and discussion
platforms. As the focus of this year conference is “Humanity within”, authors
are encouraged to submit interdisciplinary articles centred around the impact of
social media and AI on how hyperlinked content is accessed and consumed and its
impact on Humanity. This track welcomes submissions that further the
understanding of the technical inworkings of digital communities and their
societal impact, as well as novel methods and algorithms that shape online
communication, content creation and socially-mediated information access.
Topics include, but not limited to:
•           Privacy and Anonymity in Social Media – The way social media protect
and/or blur the lines between the real and virtual world.
•           Inclusiveness of Social Media – The role of social media in
including minorities, disabilities and minoritised communities.
•           Diversity and Representativeness of Social Media – The way social
media favour (or not) content diversity and its representativeness as well as
the involvement of individuals (e.g., echo chambers, content moderation).
•           Immersive Social Media (e.g., metaverse) – The development and
impact of new interaction paradigms on real-world interactions and online
•           Network Effects in Social Media – The impact of social and hyperlink
ties on content access and distribution e.g., information access, ranking,
misinformation and bot networks).
•           Social Media Algorithms – The structure, development, design, and
analysis of social media platforms and algorithms.

Reflections and Approaches
Track chair Dr Mariusz Pisarski (University of Information Technology and
Management in Rzeszow, PL)

This track considers how hypertext has transformed society and its tools: new
perspectives, future directions, and ongoing transformations that challenge our
assumptions about hypertext. This track welcomes submissions focused on (but not
limited to) critical reflection on the evolution of hypertext systems, paradigms
for new hypertext applications, as well as theories for understanding and
navigating the complexity of digital communities enabled by hypertext design and
Topics include, but not limited to:
•           Histories of hypertext: hypertext systems in critical discourse,
technology discourse and in the arts community.
•           Histories of social media: how the pioneering formulas of early
systems – such as BBS, MUD and email discussion groups –  evolved to modern
social media.
•           Designs, paradigms and theories: evolution of hypertext in scholarly
and artistic practice
•           Self-reflectivity of systems: historical impact of one hypertext
system upon another; remediations, migrations and borrowings of features in
contemporary writing/reading platforms
•           Visual histories and meta-histories of social media and hypertext:
hypertext and social media communities and ideas in visual and big-data
