The workshop is finished. See statistics here.
on the issues of design and evaluation of adaptive and adaptable
(Educational) Hypermedia applications and authoring tools.
The goals of the workshop are: to attract the interest of the related
research communities to the important issues of design and authoring
in adaptive hypermedia; to discuss the current state of the art
in this field; and to identify new challenges in the field.
Up to now, the focus of adaptive hypermedia research has been on
delivery rather than authoring.
Only recently have we noticed a shift in focus.
Therefore, important issues to discuss
* (Why) should we look at the authoring process in adaptive educational
* (How) does detecting authoring patterns help the process?
* (Why) do we need to consider cognitive styles in adaptive hypermedia?
* What do these seemingly unrelated topics have in common?
The workshop will also lead to a
better understanding and cross-dissemination of patterns extracted
from existing design and authoring processes in AH. The results
of the workshop should feed back in the European Community project
ADAPT, carried out with the support of the European Community in
the framework of the Socrates programme: http://wwwis.win.tue.nl/~acristea/HTML/Minerva/index.html
Moreover, the workshop should be
seen as a platform that enables the cooperation and exchange
of information with other related European and non-European projects.
