Dear colleagues,

We are going to edit a book entitled "Adaptable and Adaptive Hypermedia Systems", which will be published by Idea Group Publishing. Please find enclosed the call. Please note that authors need to fill out out the author form and email us a summary (600 to 800 words) by July 1, 2003. The deadline to submit the full chapters is October 1, 2003.

Adaptable and Adaptive Hypermedia Systems
A book edited by Dr. Sherry Y. Chen and Dr. George D. Magoulas, Brunel 
University, UK

Deadline for expression of interest and abstracts submission: July 1, 2003
Feedback to authors: August 1, 2003
Deadline for authors to submit full chapters: October 1, 2003

As one of the most recent developments in information technology, 
hypermedia systems have offered a significant contribution to the delivery 
of e-content through the Internet. However, not all types of users have the 
capability to develop navigation paths by themselves. Many studies have 
found that individual differences had significant effects on information 
seeking in hypermedia systems. Users with different characteristics and 
backgrounds need different types of content and navigation support. Thus, 
adaptable and adaptive hypermedia systems have emerged in the last decade. 
Research community in this area is constantly expanding, and we have 
reached a point in time where research works have mushroomed and matured. 
We need a self-contained book to demonstrate the fruit of our research.

The Overall Objective of the Book
The proposed book aims to provide a comprehensive review of 
state-of-the-art adaptable and adaptive hypermedia approaches, covering 
both their theories and applications in areas such as search engines, 
e-commerce, e-learning, and digital libraries. It will cover many issues in 
the field, providing insight into analytical and architectural aspects of 
adaptive web-based systems, as well as applications in real world settings.

The Target Audience
The book will be useful to professionals and academic researchers working 
in various areas, such as customisation and personalization, human-computer 
interaction, multimedia information systems, web-based technology, 
artificial intelligence and machine learning, and intelligent databases. 
Moreover, it will provide a source of reference and a guide for students 
working on relevant projects.

Topics of interest may focus on, but are not restricted to:
 Human Factors
 Metaphors and Navigation
 Hypermedia Authoring
 User Centered Evaluation
 Adaptive Hypermedia
 Methods and Techniques for Customization and Personalization
 User Modeling in Adaptive Hypermedia
 Database Technologies in Adaptive Hypermedia
 Adaptive Learning Environments
 Customization and Personalization in Electronic Commerce
 Personalization in Digital Libraries
 Personalization in Multimedia Systems
 Individualized Search Engines
 Evaluation Criteria and Methods

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to send on or before July 1, 
2003, a completed author form with a 600-800 word manuscript proposal 
organized in sections as follows: aim, main methodology, results, and 
significance of the contribution. Authors of accepted proposals will be 
notified by August 1, 2003 about the status of their proposals and sent 
chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be 
submitted by October 1, 2003. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a 
blind review basis. The book is scheduled to be published by Idea Group, 
Inc., publisher of the "Idea Group Publishing," "Information Science 
Publishing," and "IRM Press" imprints in 2004. Inquiries and submissions 
can be forwarded electronically (MS-Word document format or RTF) to:
