CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS NEW REVIEW OF HYPERMEDIA AND MULTIMEDIA 1999 ON THE THEMES OF HYPERMEDIA DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
OPEN HYPERMEDIA SYSTEMS NRHM is a refereed annual review journal covering research on practical and theoretical developments in hypermedia, interactive multimedia and related technologies. Issues (normally 10-12 papers) review and explore one or two topical themes from diverse perspectives.
The themes for the 1999 issue of NRHM will be:
Papers should be submitted to the appropriate theme editors. For Instructions to Authors, see http://www.comp.glam.ac.uk/~NRHM/ or contact the Editor.
Submission deadline: 1st April 1999 Acceptance notification: 1st August 1999
Final manuscripts due: 1st October 1999 Publication date: Late 1999
Hypermedia Design and Development
As evidenced by the recent explosion of interest in the World Wide Web, the application of hypermedia concepts and technologies is growing at a rapid rate, especially in terms of scope and complexity. Despite this, the development of hypermedia applications - such as websites - is typically ad hoc and poorly managed. The consequences are that results are often poor quality, difficult to maintain and excessively expensive to produce, particularly with respect to the effective utilisation of hypertext functionality.
The purpose of this special issue of NRHM is to present articles which, when taken together, demonstrate the range and depth of research addressing issues related to how we can more effectively develop hypertext applications. These articles may survey general areas of research or may focus on specific new approaches or research results. In particular submitted papers may cover any of the following areas (or others related to hypermedia development):
Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically to the Guest Editor, David Lowe, at the e-mail address above. There is no formal length limit for articles, but authors who wish to submit a long article should contact the guest editor prior to submission.
Open hypermedia systems
Open hypermedia system (OHS) research addresses the issues of supporting users with hypermedia as a seamless integrated feature of their working environment. This involves integrating hypermedia functionality with existing applications and document formats in a heterogeneous computing environment. An open hypermedia system is a kind of "middleware" in the computing environment offering hypermedia functionality to existing and future applications via a standardized communication protocol independent of document formats. Thus open hypermedia services make arbitrary applications "hypermedia enabled". Open hypermedia functionality includes support for hypermedia structuring such as linking into and from material managed by applications without altering the material itself. Open hypermedia research, however, goes beyond linking and investigates new types of hypermedia structuring mechanisms that can be applied to existing and forthcoming applications. Open hypermedia research also covers authoring and collaboration issues where information is produced and structured as part of collaboration in groups. Finally, open hypermedia research addresses distribution aspects of hypermedia structures as well as content. For example, integration of open hypermedia services in the WWW environment is an important area of research.
The purpose of this special issue of NRHM is to present articles which, when taken together, explore the state of the art in open hypermedia research. We wish to solicit papers on all aspects of open hypermedia:
Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically to the Guest Editor, Kaj Grønbæk, at the e-mail address above. There is no formal length limit for articles, but authors who wish to submit a long article should contact the guest editor prior to submission.
