Dear all,

please find enclosed the call for participation for OHS7 - the 7th
International Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems which will be held in
conjunction with Hypertext 2001 in Aarhus, DK (August 14-18). Post-workshop
Proceedings of OHS 7, Structural Computing 3 (SC3) and the Workshop on
Adaptive Hypermedia (AH3) will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science Series (LNCS, see also details below).

Please feel free to forward this call.

Best wishes,



                       Call for Participation

              7th Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems

                        in conjunction with
                           Hypertext 2001
                  Aarhus, DK, August 14-18 2001


The 7th Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems (OHS7) will be held in
conjunction  with  Hypertext  2001,  the  12th  of the premier ACM
conferences on hypertext and hypermedia.


An   Open  Hypermedia  System  (OHS)  is  typically  a  middleware
component  which   provides   hypermedia   functionality   to  all
applications on the users'  desktop.  Hence,  existing  tools  and
applications can be hypermedia  enabled  using  the  functionality
provided by OHSs.

Starting  with  OHS1  (held  at  ECHT  '94  Edinburgh,  Scotland),
a  series  of  workshops  around  this  overall  theme of OHSs has
been  organized:  OHS2  (held  at Hypertext '96 Washington, D.C.),
OHS3  (held at Hypertext '97 in sunny Southampton, UK), OHS4 (held
at  Hypertext  '98 in Pittsburgh, PA), OHS5 (held at Hypertext '99
in Darmstadt, Germany) and finally OHS6  (held at Hypertext '00 in
San Antonio, TX).

The  OHS community has established itself as a very active part of
the  hypermedia  research community. In March 1996, members of the
OHS   community   formed   the  Open  Hypermedia  Systems  Working
Group  (OHSWG).  Since  then,  the  OHSWG  has  been  pursuing the
difficult   and  rewarding  task  of  addressing  interoperability
amongst   Open   Hypermedia   Systems.   Proposals  for  reference
architectures,    protocols    for    Open   Hypermedia   Systems,
application   scenarios,   the   distinction   between   different
hypertext   application   domains,   issues   of   OHS   and   Web
integration,    and    many    more    contributions   from   both
researchers  and  practitioners  build  the repertoire of subjects
that have been addressed at previous workshops.


Workshop papers should clearly state the author's view of important
results or research topics that should be addressed at the workshop.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

* Interoperation and standardisation issues in OHS, including
   architectural issues, protocols, naming, transformation, etc.
* Semantic Web including topic maps, meta data, ontologies, etc.
* Document models and hypertext
* Media aspects of OHSs such as synchronisation of contents and
   link data, streaming of links, etc.
* OHS issues and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)
* Application scenarios, experiences, hypertext domains, and
   requirements for OHSs
* Open Hypermedia on the Web
* Presentation aspects including personalisation, context
   awareness, etc.
* Progress reports by OHSWG subgroup chairs

If you are in doubt whether  your subject is appropriate for OHS7
feel free to contact the organiser.

Accepted  papers will be published as Post-workshop Proceedings in
Springer's  LNCS  Series.  Papers  should  be  7 to 10 pages A4 in
length  and  should  be  formatted  according  to  Springer's LNCS
guidelines   (see   also  the  workshop  Web  page  and  the  LNCS
Author's                                                Guidelines     Submit    your
paper via  email  to  [log in to unmask]  not  later  than
Tuesday, June 5, 2001.


* Position papers due          Tue, Jun  5, 2001
* Notification of acceptance  Fri, Jun 29, 2001
* Workshop date                 Wed, Aug 15, 2001
* Final version of paper due  Fri, Sep 14, 2001
