Web-based application systems, as well as other complex hypermedia
systems with a large variety of users, suffer from an inability to
satisfy heterogeneous needs. A Web course presents the same static
explanation of a concept to students with widely differing knowledge
of the subject. A Web bookstore offers the same selection of
bestsellers to customers with different reading preferences. A Web
museum offers the same "guided tour" and the same narration to
visitors with very different goals and interests. A remedy for the
negative effects of the traditional "one-size-fits-all" approach is
to enhance a system's ability to adapt its own behavior to the goals,
tasks, interests, and other features of individual users. Starting in
the 1990s, many research teams began to investigate ways of modelling
features of the users of hypermedia systems. This has led to a number
of interesting adaptation techniques and adaptive hypermedia systems.
The Web, with its clear demand for personalization, served as a real
booster for this research area, providing both a challenge and an
attractive platform. The AH2000 Conference continues from a series of
successful workshops on the topic of adaptive hypermedia and adaptive
Web applications. It will provide a forum in which researchers and
practitioners with different backgrounds can exchange their
complementary insights. The conference aims to promote a
cross-fertilisation of ideas and highlight the prospects for future
