2nd International Workshop on Scholarly Hypertext
This workshop will explore issues in the application of hypertext - with its affordances for connection, non-linearity, multiple narratives and flexible navigation - to the intellectual work involved in scholarly research. Other forms of intellectual work overlap strongly with 'academic scholarship' and are legitimate domains to draw on. Likewise, there is active research in related fields such as information retrieval, digital libraries and domain visualization - work in these areas is relevant if there is a strong hypertext element.
Expected themes include:
Hypertextual reading and writing:
Hypertextual knowledge discovery:
Setting hypertext in context:
Proceedings will be disseminated initially through an online archive, with revised proceedings in a subsequent publication to be considered.
This will be a full-day workshop comprising brief presentations, demos, and discussion to identify cross-connections and emerging themes.
Papers, hypertexts and demonstrations will all be considered. Accepted contributions will go on a private website for circulation and discussion in advance. It is expected that they will connect to one of the themes above to give the workshop focus, but other themes will certainly be considered. The programme will aim to balance presentations with discussions. A decision on participant numbers will be taken when we know what the level of interest is.
Deadline: submissions should be sent to Leslie Carr <firstname.lastname@example.org> and received by 30th June.
