Call for Participation 3rd International Workshop on Structural Computing (SC3) (http://www.cti.gr/sc3) in conjuction with Hypertext 2001, Aarhus, DK, August 14 - 18, 2001 http://www.cti.gr/sc3
WORKSHOP INTRODUCTION & HISTORY The conceptual foundations of Open Hypermedia - its underlying structures and behaviors - have all focused on supporting one task: information navigation. However, these abstractions cannot address issues in new domains (e.g. spatial and taxonomic hypermedia ) in a convinient and efficient way. Structural computing asserts the primacy of structure over data shaping the theoretical and practical foundations upon which applications in new hypermedia domains can be developed. In achieving such a framework, structure-oriented models as well as services that can be build on top of it should be the primary research focus of the open hypermedia community. Structural computing attempts to change the way the invisible but important infrastructure of contemporary Open Hypermedia Systems (OHS) work in providing open structure-based services in heterogeneous environments. The current move of the hypermedia community in producing Component-Based Open Hypermedia Systems (CB-OHS) is providing the vehicle for structural computing to become increasingly important and relevant to the hypermedia community in general.
SC3 is the third workshop of this series. The previous two workshops have been SC1, held in conjunction with the ACM Hypertext 99 Conference in Darmstadt organized by Peter Nuernberg and SC2, held in conjunction with the ACM Hypertext 2000 Conference in San Antonio organized by Kenneth Anderson.
WORKSHOP TOPICS SC3 will be open to all aspects relevant to structural computing. Suggested topics include but are not limited to the following:
SUBMISSION DETAILS Accepted papers will be published as post-workshop Proceedings by Springer Verlag, Heidelberg, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series ( See Author guidelines for more details http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html ). Submit your paper not later than June 5th, 2001 encoded as PDF via e-mail to tzagara_at_cti.gr. Position papers should be between 7 and not more than 10 pages in length.Submissions not following these guidelines cannot be published.
