Dear OHS workshop participant, dear OHSWG member,

please find enclosed the call for participation for OHS6 - the 6th Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems which will be held in conjunction with Hypertext 2000 in San Antonio, TX. Post-workshop Proceedings of OHS 6 and Structural Computing 2 (SC2) will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series (LNCS, see also details below).

Best wishes,


                       Call for Participation

              6th Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems

                        in conjunction with
                           Hypertext 2000
                  San Antonio, TX, May 30 2000


The 6th Workshop on Open Hypermedia Systems (OHS6) will be held in conjunction with Hypertext 2000, the 11th of the premier ACM conferences on hypertext and hypermedia. The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday May 30, 2000.

WORKSHOP INTRODUCTION & HISTORY An Open Hypermedia System (OHS) is typically a middleware component which provides hypermedia functionality to all applications on the users' desktop. Hence, existing tools and applications can be hypermedia enabled using the functionality provided by OHSs.

Starting with OHS1 (held at ECHT '94 Edinburgh, Scotland), a series of workshops around this overall theme of OHSs has been organized: OHS2 (held at Hypertext '96 Washington, D.C.), OHS3 (held at Hypertext '97 in sunny Southampton, UK), OHS4 (held at Hypertext '98 in Pittsburgh, PA), and OHS5 (held at Hypertext '99 in Darmstadt, Germany).

The OHS community has established itself as a very active part of the hypermedia research community. In March 1996, members of the OHS community formed the Open Hypermedia Systems Working Group (OHSWG). Since then, the OHSWG has been pursuing the difficult and rewarding task of addressing interoperability amongst Open Hypermedia Systems. Proposals for reference architectures, protocols for Open Hypermedia Systems, application scenarios, the distinction between different hypertext application domains, issues of OHS and Web integration, and many more contributions from both researchers and practitioners build the repertoire of subjects that have been addressed at previous workshops (for an overview of these see http://www.aue.auc.dk/~kock/HomePage/events.html).

WORKSHOP THEME & POSITION PAPERS Workshop papers should clearly state the author's view of important results or research topics that should be addressed at the workshop. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

If you are in doubt whether your subject is appropriate for OHS6 feel free to contact the organiser.

Accepted papers will be published as Post-workshop Proceedings in Springer's LNCS Series. Papers should be 7 to 10 pages A4 in length and should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS guidelines (see also the workshop Web page and the LNCS
