AH2003 is a workshop with sessions proposed at three conferences:
The Twelfth International
Wide Web Conference
The Fourteenth Conference on
Hypertext and Hypermedia
Here are links to the schedules and photos for the Workshop Sessions:
The proceedings are now on-line. Authors can verify their papers before the final printing.
All candidate participants to the workshop (without paper presentation) are invited to submit a short position paper, describing their ongoing research.
The research area of adaptive hypermedia originates from the coming together of the areas of hypertext and hypermedia, user modeling and Web-based information systems, all of which have embraced the topic of adaptation.
Under different names workshops have been organized, mainly at the world Wide Web Conference (1999), the user Modeling Conference (1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2001) and the ACM Hypertext Conference (1997, 1998, 2001). The Workshop on Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-Based Systems builds on the tradition that was started in 1994 as a workshop on adaptive hypertext and hypermedia at the User Modeling Conference, followed by 1998 at the ACM Hypertext Conference, and organized as a two-session workshop in 2001, at the User Modeling and Hypertext conferences. The 2001 workshop also started a tradition of having a workshop in between the main Adaptive Hypermedia conferences which have been organized in 2000 (Trento, Italy) and 2002 (Malaga, Spain). The adaptive hypermedia community is growing (around 90 in 2000, 180 in 2002) and working actively in preparation of a third full conference in 2004. Adaptive hypermedia researchers are getting together in 2003 to discuss issues and questions that are important in this field. this is be done in a three session workshop, where each session has a different focus.
In 2003 the adaptive hypermedia workshop focuses on adaptation engineering. Each part of the workshop approaches this problem from a different perspective, starting with the enabling technologies for realizing adaptation engineering at WWW 2003, discussing issues with respect to user modelling (as the main driving part of adaptive applications) at UM 2003, and finally presenting various ways of constructing adaptive hypermedia at HyperText 03. The three sessions feature joint proceedings, published on the Web at http://wwwis.win.tue.nl/ah2003/ and also as a TU/e Computer Science Report.
The workshop takes a question-oriented approach. All contributions are required to make an explicit statement, within the abstract, explaining which research question(s) they are addressing. They can approach the questions from different angles: from field observations, from an application area, from a theoretical perspective, from a systems engineering perspective, etc. appropriate research questions are listed in the table below, but contributors are free to suggest (and defend) additional questions.
