New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia*

Special issue on Adaptive Hypermedia

Guest editors: Peter Brusilovsky & Paul De Bra

Adaptive hypermedia  is a research area at the crossroads of 
hypermedia and user
modeling. Adaptive hypermedia systems  offer an alternative to the traditional
³one-size-fits-all² hypermedia and Web systems by adapting to the 
goals, interests,
and knowledge of individual users as they are represented in the 
individual user
models. This chapter is focused on adaptive navigation support technologies
originally developed in the field of adaptive hypermedia. By 
adaptively altering the
appearance of links or and the content on every browsed page, these
technologies support personalized access to information. Over the 
last 10 years,
adaptive navigation support technologies have been used in many adaptive Web
systems in a range of application areas from e-learning to e-commerce.

The two earlier special issues of the NRHM journal focused on 
adaptive hypermedia (1998 and 2004) presented a collection of papers 
reporting projects focused on classic pre-Web hypermedia as first 
generation adaptive hypermedia systems on the Web. Since that the 
field has achieved its maturity. Five international conferences on 
adaptive hypermedia and adaptive Web systems (AH2000 to AH2008) and a 
number of workshops have reported a variety of work devoted to all 
aspects of adaptive hypermedia and the adaptive Web. However, there 
is a clear lack of archival journal papers that present in detail 
state-of-the-art works on the ³modern-Web² adaptive hypermedia. This 
special invites research papers on all topics related to the area of 
Adaptive Hypermedia.

For this special issue by adaptive hypermedia we mean any hypermedia 
application that
automatically adapts its behavior to the broader context in which it is
being used. This includes adapting to the user of the
application, as well as groups of users, and a range of usage factors 
such as time,
place, platform, and other context conditions.

The special issue focuses on foundations of adaptive hypermedia
that are not specific to a particular application domain.
(However, such foundations may be illustrated by applications
in a specific domain.) Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

* acquisition and updating of individual and group user models
* (distributed) user modeling service architectures
* intelligent agent technology for adaptive systems
* composition of and communication between adaptive systems
* data mining for personalization and adaptation
* adaptation methods and techniques
* architectures for scalable high-performance adaptive systems
* usability and scrutability in user modeling and adaptive systems
* security and privacy in adaptive systems

Submissions that extend mature research publications at major 
conferences related to (adaptive) hypermedia are encouraged.
Submissions may take the form of research papers or shorter technical 
notes and should be submitted electronically at the Journalıs 
Manuscript Central site 
Questions and enquiries are welcome.

Submission deadline: November 17, 2008
Acceptance notification: December 28, 2008
