                  German Society for Computer Science
             Hypertext - Information Retrieval - Multimedia 


                        5-7 April 1995

            Information Science, University of Konstanz


More and more the requirements placed on modern information systems 
from the system's and the user's point of view do not allow a separate 
view of problems.  Hence the special interest groups 'Hypertext' 
(4.9.1), 'Information Retrieval' (2.5.4/4.9.3) and 'Multimediate 
electronic documents' (4.9.2) within the German Society for Computer 
Science (GI), the Austrian Computer Society (CG), the Swiss Society 
of Computer Scientists (SI) and the Academic Association for 
Information Science (HI) will hold a joint conference with focus on 
hypertext (HT), information retrieval (IR) and multimedia (MM).

HIM'95 continues a successful series of meetings in German-speaking 
countries: It is the fifth hypertext conference (following Basel, 
Darmstadt, Graz and Zuerich), the second information retrieval-meeting 
after Regensburg and the second meeting of the special interest group 
'multimediate electronic documents'. 

Contributions that are specialized as well as those along 
interdisciplinary lines are welcome in the form of papers, posters and 
tutorials for all parts and aspects of hypertext, information retrieval 
and multimedia. We strongly encourage the demonstration of 
systems during and in addition to the papers. Of course this does not 
imply exclusion of mainly theoretical papers.

The meeting emphasizes the following issues:

Models for HT, IR and MM
Systems' architecture and implementation
Applications of HT, IR and MM-systems
Standards for interfaces, exchange formats and query languages
Content representation in HT, IR and MM-systems
Cognitive aspects in the use of  HT, IR and MM-systems
Authoring systems
Structure and administration of document sets
Distributed and open HT, IR and MM-systems
Requirements on large HT, IR and MM-systems
Database support of HT, IR and MM-systems
Cooperative, adaptive and knowledge based methods
Interaction and user interfaces
Quality, acceptance and evaluation
HT, IR and MM-systems as means of information management
