Hypertext and hypermedia are technologies for supporting structured knowledge work. The Seventeenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia: Tools for Supporting Social Structures (HT 2006) will focus specifically on tools that help us represent, model and interact with social structures, including cultural, literary, linguistic, and other types of social structures. Recently, in fields ranging from anthropology to linguistics, there has been an increasing focus on representing complex social phenomena using networks or other structure-intensive models. HT 2006 will bring together social scientists with hypertext and hypermedia researchers who specialize in building tools to build, manipulate, and manage structure-intensive models
