ZigZag workshop at ACM HT01

From: Zigzag Workshop Organiser (zigzag-workshop_at_ecs.soton.ac.uk)
Date: Fri 18 May 2001 - 10:06:36 CDT

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 Referential hypertext (the Xanadu model) with ZigZag - Ted Nelson
