HUMAN'20 - 3rd Workshop on Human Factors in Hypertext

Official workshop of the ACM Hypertext Conference '20
Sponsored by ACM SIGWEB // December 4, 2020 // Online

Workshop website:


HUMAN'20 is the third workshop of a series for the ACM Hypertext
conferences. It is sponsored by SIGWEB and affiliated with the
31st ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media. It has a strong
focus on the user and thus is complementary to the strong machine
analytics research direction that could be experienced in previous

The user-centric view on hypertext not only includes user interfaces
and interaction, but also discussions about hypertext application
domains. Furthermore, the workshop raises the question of how original
hypertext ideas (e.g., Doug Engelbart's "augmenting human intellect" or
Frank Halasz' "hypertext as a medium for thinking and communication")
can improve today's hypertext systems.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the fact that HT'20 is held virtually,
the HUMAN'20 workshop will take place online later in 2020. This will
make it easier for participants to follow both events HT'20 and
information see the workshop website and follow us on Twitter.


Historically, hypertext is strongly connected to human factors. This
can be experienced by the early work provided by hypertext pioneers,
such as Doug Engelbart or Ted Nelson. However, recent hypertext
research focuses mostly on machine analytics. This workshop wants to
broaden the scope again by taking the human back into consideration. In
order to accomplish that, the workshop combines original hypertext ideas
with recent hypertext research trends. Furthermore, it tries to
consolidate different hypertext areas by looking at those from a human
factors viewpoint.

HUMAN also encourages to submit work that has an interdisciplinary
perspective. It targets both scientists and developers from various
research and business areas who consider a critical and open-minded
discussion of original hypertext ideas with the goal to identify and
solve today's hypertext challenges.

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

- Systems for augmenting human intellect
- User-centric hypertext systems
- User interfaces and interactions
- Cognitive aspects and hypertext
- Collaboration and hypertext
- Information structuring
- Hypertext used for human communication
- Hypertext and decision making
- Spatial hypertext
- Annotation services
- Organizing information
- Information structuring in digital humanities
- User perspectives in adaptive hypertext
- Social aspects of humans using hypertext
- Intercultural aspects in hypertext


All papers must be original and may not not published, submitted,
and/or currently under review elsewhere. Each submission will be peer
reviewed in a double-blind manner.

Papers must follow the new layout published in the ACM guidelines
("sigconf" template) (
and submitted in PDF format (short papers: 2-4 pages; long papers: 5-10
pages). Submissions must be emailed to the organizers no later than
September 27, 2020 (anywhere on earth).

All accepted and at the workshop presented papers will be published at
the ACM Digital Library.


Submission deadline: September 27, 2020
Notification of acceptance: October 19, 2020
