Those of you with experience (or indeed views) on the use of 
RDF for expressing hypermedia may be interested in the Hypermedia 
and the Semantic Web Workshop at ACM Hypertext 03 (The fourteenth
conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia), August 26-30, Nottingham, 

The July 18 deadline for position papers is approaching - see


for more info.

International Workshop on Hypermedia and the Semantic Web

The Semantic Web provides a range of mechanisms to express relationships
between things. These vary in power of expression from the Resource
Description Framework through to the three levels of the OWL Web Ontology
Language, all available from W3C, while the Semantic Web research
community has ventured further into rule languages and beyond.

Hypermedia is also about expressing relationships between things, with
models including navigational, spatial, taxonomic and temporal hypermedia.
So what is the relationship between hypermedia and the Semantic Web?

We believe that researchers in each community can learn from the other,
and we hope that this new workshop will facilitate this flow of ideas and
experience. We equally welcome paper submissions from hypertext
practitioners who are using or developing Semantic Web ideas and
technologies, and Semantic Web practitioners who are using or developing
hypermedia ideas and technologies.

Thus topics include:

* application of semantic web technologies to hypermedia systems
* open hypermedia and the semantic web
* ontologies and taxonomic hypertext
* relationship between inference and link resolution
* hypermedia service description, discovery and composition<
* time based hypermedia and the Semantic Web
* hyperlinks versus semantic relationships
* hypermedia and Semantic Grid
* ontological hypertext
* conceptual open hypermedia
* interface/interaction issues for hypertext/semantic web systems


The workshop is open to both researchers and practitioners working with
hypermedia systems and/or semantic web technologies. Participation in the
workshop may either be:

* by submission of a short position paper (of two to four A4 pages)
* by submission of a workshop paper (of six to ten A4 pages)

In case there are more submissions than feasible for a one-day workshop
those contributions most appropriate to the workshop theme will be
selected for presentation. The proceedings will then be published as a
Technical report from the Electronics and Computer Science Department,
University of Southampton, UK.

Activities Planned

The workshop is to be organised by splitting it into sessions. Sessions
will consist of brief position statements or longer paper presentations
followed by discussions. A closing session will summarise the outcome of
the workshop and determine any further activities to be performed.

Submission Details & Authoring Guidelines

Submit your workshop or position paper not later than 18th July, 2003
encoded as PDF or HTML via e-mail to David Millard (dem@ecs.soton.ac.uk).
Submitted papers will be refereed; after your presentation at the
workshop you will have the possibility to update your paper and
submit a final version.

Important Dates

* Notification of acceptance			 8th August, 2003
* Position papers available at the web site	15th August, 2003
* Workshop date					30th August, 2003
* Final version of paper due			10th October, 2003


This new workshop builds on the tradition established within the Open
Hypermedia Systems community and in particular on the Open Hypermedia
Systems (OHS) workshop series.

It also draws on recent interest in the Hypertext community in the
Semantic Web and in particular the HT01 panel "The Semantic Web: Who Needs
