Call for Participation: First International Zigzag Workshop
Held at  2001 ACM Conference on Hypertext, Aarhus, Denmark
Tuesday, August 14, 2001

Zigzag is a novel hypertext paradigm, invented by Ted Nelson, that embodies
ideas about information representation, processing and access.
Fundamentally, ZigZag is about cross-viewable multidimensional lists. It
provides an unusual paradigm for information structures, with interesting
new designs and models for input, viewing, interaction, data structures and
programming. Naturally, this has a number of applications for hypertext and
hypermedia; it also offers its own new and engrossing set of problems. This
workshop, a part of the ACM Hypertext 2001 conference, is aimed at
disseminating information about the ideas behind Zigzag, demonstrating the
implementations of those ideas and discussing their relevance to future
hypermedia information systems.

The workshop will consist of presentations and group discussions together
with hands-on demonstrations and tutorials for those unfamiliar with Zigzag.
A tentative list of invited presentations has been drawn up:

Introduction to ZigZag - Ted Nelson
The first ZigZag implementation - Andrew Pam
The Gzigzag project - Tuomas J. Lukka
ZigZag and the Web - Leslie Carr
ZigZag for textual hyperstructures and personal use - Marlene Mallicoat
Designs for ZigZag languages - Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho
