DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT: Monday, August 2, 1993

The deadline for papers, panels, and technical briefings has passed,
but there is still time to submit a poster for presentation at Hypertext'93.
Poster presentations will allow researchers to present late-breaking results,
significant work in progress, or work that is best presented in conversation.
Poster sessions let conference attendees exchange ideas one-on-one with authors
and let authors discuss their work in more detail with those attendees
most deeply interested in a topic.

(There's also time to submit a demonstration, contact william@atc.boeing.com.)

Posters will be accepted much later than papers in order to provide
an opportunity for presenting and getting feedback on hot new ideas.
Posters will be reviewed by a panel of subject-matter experts
and will be selected on the basis of their contribution to research or practice.
Because of the interactive nature of poster presentations,
only one submission will be accepted per author.

Submit an EXTENDED abstract of at most two pages emphasizing:
* the problem,
* what was done, and
* why the work is important.
Please provide cover information:
* the title,
* the name and affiliation of the author(s),
* a few keyword phrases,
* complete contact address for the author to whom
correspondence should be addressed.
(including telephone, fax, e-mail)
For accepted posters, authors will be asked for an ABBREVIATED abstract
for dissemination at the conference and in the poster session report
for the ACM SIGLINK newsletter.

E-mail and fax submissions will be accepted.
E-mail submissions are PREFERRED over paper which is preferred over fax.
PostScript and RTF are okay. LaTeX, troff, Scribe, Word, WP, etc. are not.

Answers to some expected questions follow.

Q: When will the posters be displayed?
A: Posters will on display almost all the time during the conference.
There will be one or two 2-3-hour blocks of time dedicated to the
posters and demonstrations during which poster presenters will be
expected to be available to answer questions. At other times,
conference attendees will be able to view the posters.

Q: Will the posters be published as part of the proceedings?
A: No, but abstracts of the posters will be available at the conference.
Posters will be technical "presentations" but not "publications".
Some posters might make good papers for the SIGLINK newsletter,
or other outlets. The Hypertext'91 poster abstracts were published
in the ACM SIGLINK Newsletter, Vol. 1, No. 2, pp. 17-24.

Q: How many posters will be accepted?
A: We have room for 30-40 posters, but are prepared to accept fewer.
For Hypertext'91 about 50% of submissions were accepted.
