at the Eighth International World Wide Web Conference
Tuesday May 11, 1999 - Toronto, Canada
The goal of this workshop, HTF/VD1, has been to discuss the role of hypertext functionality for virtual documents on the Web. Participants contributed positions or scenarios that clarified either how the Web can be improved to support more systems based on sophisticated hypertext or virtual documents and/or how HTF and VD models can be added to the Web.
There have been a series of previous Hypertext Functionality (HTF) workshops, which began in conjunction with the ACM Hypertext Conferences. The first three HTF workshops concentrated on the identification and organization of hypertext functionalities that could form the core of hypertext systems in a wide variety of application areas. HTF4 examined issues related to the incorporation of advanced hypertext functionality in web-based applications. HTF5, held in conjunction with the ICSE conference in Kyoto, May 1998, examined the impact of HTF on software engineering. There have also been several workshops on the use of adaptive and dynamic hypertext techniques, such as the 2nd Workshop on Adaptive Hypertext and Hypermedia, held in conjunction with the Ninth ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedi, 20-24 June 1998, the Workshop on Reuse of Web-based Information and 2nd Flexible Hypertext Workshop, held in conjunction with the 7th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW7). Brisbane, Australia. April 1998, the Flexible Hypertext Workshop, held at the Eighth ACM International Hypertext Conference (Hypertext'97), the Intelligent educational systems on the World-Wide Web, held in conjunction with the 8th World Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AI-ED 97), the Workshop on Adaptive Systems and User Modeling on the World Wide Web, held in conjunction with the Sixth International Conference on User Modeling (UM'97), the Workshop on User Modelling for Information Filtering on the World Wide Web, held in conjunction with the Fifth International Conference on User Modeling (UM'96), and the Workshop on Adaptive Hypertext and Hypermedia held in conjunction with the Fourth International Conference on User Modeling (UM'94). The idea for a workshop focusing on Virtual Documents arose at WWW7 because of the realization of commonalities in focus and interests.
