WWW2006 Hypermedia and Multimedia Track: CALL FOR PAPERS


15th International World Wide Web Conference
May 22-25, 2006
Edinburgh, Scotland

The International World Wide Web Conference Committee (IW3C2) invites
you to participate in the Fifteenth International World Wide Web
Conference in Edinburgh, Scotland on May 22nd-26th 2006. The first
international WWW conference was held in 1994 at CERN where the Web
was born. Since then, the conference series has been the prime venue
for both academics and industries to present, demonstrate, and discuss
the latest ideas and developments about the Web.

WWW2006 will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland at the Edinburgh
International Conference Centre. The technical program will include
refereed paper presentations, special interest tracks, plenary
sessions, panels, and poster sessions. Tutorials and workshops will
run before and throughout the conference. A Developers track, devoted
to in-depth technical sessions designed specifically for web
developers, will run in parallel throughout the conference.


The media is not the only message. How media is composed, be it with
video edits, display layouts or hyperlinks, also conveys important
information, both for the end-user in final presentations, and for the
author in selecting raw media for incorporation into
presentations. Since its beginning, such composition has been a
fundamental component of the World Wide Web. The Hypermedia and
Multimedia Track of WWW2006 brings together the latest research in
this field, showing how the Web continues to connect media, ideas and

Hypermedia and multimedia research investigates how media is composed
and how best to exploit this compositional structure. Primary
compositional components include space, time and navigation. Here,
media is both final presentations and raw source media that can end up
in final presentations. Media processing starts with its capture and
creation by different people with different tools. We expect it then
to connect media in different formats from different
locations. Finally, good cutting-edge hypermedia and multimedia should
make all media available to anyone, anywhere at any time, in the means
best suited for them.

Potential topics for contribution to this year's track include:

    * facilitating authoring
    * unifying the media creation-to-presentation life cycle
    * personalization
    * adaptivity
    * multi-modality
    * use of context for capture, analysis, authoring and rendering
    * analysis and accessing
    * indexing and retrieval
    * link analysis
    * emerging hypermedia and multimedia standards
    * mining of media and its compositional structure
    * acquisition of media metadata
    * (semi-)automatic presentation generation
    * mobile and ubiquitous environments
    * media streaming
    * rights management
    * computational aesthetics
