Dear colleagues,

We would like to let you know that we are extending the submission 
deadline for the DAHı09 workshop until April 4, 2009.

However, we kindly request you to send us the abstracts by March 27, 
2009 to facilitate better organization of the reviewing process.

Kind regards,
DAHı09 Workshop Chairs

DAHı09: International Workshop on Dynamic and Adaptive
Hypertext: Generic Frameworks, Approaches and Techniques

at ACM HT 2009: the 20th ACM Hypertext Conference
(<> June 29 - July 1, 
2009, Torino, Italy

Dynamic generation of hypertext and its adaptation and 
personalization to particular users is a powerful and useful concept. 
It is particularly helpful for the reduction of the information 
overload such as is frequently experienced on the Internet. But it is 
equally helpful for guiding users towards "interesting" topics, 
products, artifacts or descriptions thereof in electronic shops, 
libraries or museums, or for filtering appropriate items from a 
general or domain-specific news feed.

Reference models and generic architectures unify a community and 
provide a leading generic model and/or architecture that spawns 
research activities in many directions. Examples of such generic 
models are AHAM for adaptive hypermedia and FOHM for open hypermedia. 
A nice example of a resulting generic implementation is the AHA! 
system that was last described in ACM Hypertext '06.

The research fields of hypertext and adaptive hypermedia (or adaptive 
web-based information systems) however, have been growing rapidly 
during the past ten years and this has resulted in a plethora of new 
terms, concepts, models and prototype systems. As a result the 
established models no longer include many of the recent new concepts 
and phenomena. In particular, open corpus adaptation, ontologies, 
group adaptation, social network analysis and data mining tools for 
adaptation are not or at least insufficiently supported. The DAH'09 
Workshop as part of Hypertext 2009 conference aims at providing a 
focused international forum for researchers to present, discuss and 
explore new developments in generic methods and technologies for 
dynamic and adaptive hypertext. A non-exhaustive list of topics of 
interest includes:

-       Adaptation and personalization
     o   open-corpus adaptation
     o   group adaptation
     o   higher order adaptation
     o   sharing of user models
-       Adaptive/Dynamic Hypertext authoring
     o   authoring conceptual adaptation models
-       Data mining for
     o   user modeling
     o   domain modeling
     o   automatic generation of adaptation rules

April 4, 2009 (Extended)      Submission of paper (LNCS format, 
12-pages maximum)
May 1, 2009         _________ Notification of acceptance
June 1, 2009        _________ Final papers due
June 29, 2009       _________ Workshop day

All submissions will be handled electronically. Please submit your 
contribution (up to 12 LNCS format pages) before the submission 
deadline (April 4, 2009: extended) to the DAH'09 workshop chairs by 
e-mail: <mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask] and 
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask] with "DAH'09 
submission" in the subject field. Each submission will be reviewed by 
at least two members of the workshop program committee. All accepted 
workshop papers will be published in the online workshop proceedings. 
There will be no separate workshop registration fees. At least one of 
the authors of an accepted submission must register to the main 
conference and participate to the workshop with paper presentation.
