Seventh ACM Conference on Hypertext
Washington DC, USA, March 16-20, 1996
In connection with HT'96, four workshops will be held prior to
the main conference. Attendance is by invitation only, following
submission of a position paper (see call for participation for individual
Workshops provide an opportunity for small groups who share a
technical interest to meet for intense discussions. To ensure a small
enough group for open interchange, each workshop is limited to 20
participants. These participants are chosen ahead of time on the
basis of position papers sent to the workshop organizers.
Workshop attendees are expected to participate actively to ensure that
this forum advances the state of the art. Participants will be
expected to be familiar with all materials sent as preparation for the
workshop and to participate actively in the workshop discussions.
Attendees may be asked to give a short presentation that will serve as
a basis for discussion.
The theme of this workshop is query access by naive users to a universe of
discourse consisting of multiple, heterogeneous, multimedia databases in
such a way that the users need not know the location or format of the
information that they request. This is in contrast to the traditional
methods of routing by location, address, and type.
The goals of the workshop are: 1) to elucidate the state of the art in
navigating a universe of data bases whose locations are unknown to the
users, 2) to define open research questions in areas related to the above,
and 3) to identify approaches to representing meta-knowledge for intelligent
navigation in heterogeneous multimedia data bases.

The main objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for exchange
of information and discussion of topics for people sharing interests
in open hypermedia systems. The specific objectives of the workshop
are to provide the latest results from ongoing well-known research
projects in the area (e.g., DHM, Microcosm, Multicard, Hyperform, SP4,
Chimera and WWW), to allow research topics and new approaches to be
presented and discussed, and to work towards common standards and
reference models for open hypermedia systems.

The objectives of this workshop are to
bring together hypermedia researchers and web developers,
document hypermedia research's role in current web development,
and to lay out the web's role in future hypermedia research.
The workshop will be broken down into three segments: 1) Hypermedia
research's influence, 2) World-Wide Web needs, and 3) Further

This workshop takes a cross-disciplinary approach to implementing
hypermedia as value-added support functionality. We consider the
entire process of embedding hypertext functions into non-hypertext
oriented information systems. These include a large base of
scientific and business applications, which dynamically generate
their content, and which people use primarily for their underlying
analytic functionality Hypertext features both supplement and give
users access to the application's primary activities.
