Workshop Cancelled

The Hypertext 2004 conference regrets to announce that the Geographic Hypermedia workshop has been cancelled, due to insufficient response. However, there will be a paper session on Ubiquitous Hypermedia in the main conference.

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS - NEW DEADLINE: JUNE 1st (FIRM)
International Workshop on Geographic Hypermedia

in conjunction with
ACM Hypertext 2004, Santa Cruz, August 9-13, 2004

WORKSHOP TITLE
"Geographic Hypermedia: Concepts and Systems."

Duration: 1 day - August 9, 2004

WORKSHOP THEME AND GOALS

The integration of the Web and Multimedia technologies with Geographical Information Science (GIS) has recently lead to the development of new forms of multimedia geo-representations. Currently, many geomatics solutions are web-based and provide access to multimedia elements in order to support efficiently specific application domains. The scope of this workshop is to allow multi-disciplinary researchers in the area of Geographic Hypermedia present their present work and exchange ideas.

The objectives of this workshop are:

  1. Surveying the state and variety of research areas in geographic hypermedia

  2. Reviewing the current state-of-the-art geographic hypermedia applications

  3. Providing guidance to geographic hypermedia system implementers from user experience

  4. Surveying geographic hypermedia for open questions and future research directions

WORKSHOP TOPICS

Among the expected topics would be:

  • Hypermedia GIS and Spatial Decision Support

  • Geographic Hypermedia Database Management and Exploration

  • Geovisualization

  • Virtual and Augmeneted Reality 

  • Location Based Services and Geographic Messaging Services

  • Hypermedia Cartography

  • Hypermaps and Hypermedia Atlases

  • Web-based and Virtual Wayfinding Services 

INTENDED AUDIENCE

Geographic hypermedia system developers, Geo-scientists (e.g., geographers, geologists, foresters, etc.), Cartographers, Computer Scientists generally interested in hypermedia applications which involve geographic data. 

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Papers should be 10 to 15 pages in length (using: times, 10pt, single-spaced) and should be submitted no later than May 21st, 2004 in pdf format via e-mail to stefanakis@ais.fraunhofer.de or estef@hua.gr

A Program Committee of senior researchers (see next) will review the submitted papers.

Accepted papers will be provided in a volume and/or CD-ROM to the workshop participants. A book edition with (extended versions of) the workshop papers will be published by Springer in a stand alone title (more details soon).
