The workshop is
targeted at all people working towards the discovery of patterns
in adaptive hypermedia with special focus on the domain of education.
The necessity of these patterns can be as a result of authoring
push or AH system interfacing or ultimately open (adaptive) hypermedia
or pull. This means that patterns can emerge from repetitive structures
used by AH authors; alternatively, patterns can emerge from interface
programs or interface languages between different adaptive hypermedia
systems, or from trying to interface to the open adaptive hypermedia.
This includes researchers that are active in all these fields, as
well as representatives of larger projects or networks dealing with
these issues. We encourage these researchers to submit papers to
the workshop on their latest results and ideas.
Moreover, the workshop is also targeted at people who are interested
to hear and discuss the state of the art and the future of this
important domain of adaptive hypermedia patterns. We encourage these
researchers to participate actively in the discussions for which
time will be especially allocated, as well as in the other interactive
parts, such as questionnaires and, if time allows it, demos.
The workshop’s main aim is to bring together researchers working
or interested in the emerging field of adaptive patterns for adaptive
educational hypermedia authoring. We expect to extract and discuss
these emerging patterns, smoothening the transition towards standard
proposals in the field.
Participants are expected to leave with a better knowledge of the
state of the art of the field, as well as to have a fruitful brain-storming
session generating new ideas and opening new paths.
As this is a new field, we do not expect final results, but pointers
towards some existing solutions and better approaches.
Results of the discussions and questionnaire processing will be
posted after the workshop on-line on the workshop site, as is the
case with the first edition of this workshop.
