2005 ACM Hypertext Conf. and Workshop on Narrative, Musical, Cinematic, and Gaming Hyperstructure
6–9 Sept. 2005
The conference and the workshop will be held in tandem. The aim of the conference is to consider hypertext requirements that allow automatic and semiautomatic recombinant systems to function as self-standing systems or as part of larger creative environments. Potential topics in this area include methods for forming and representing collections of surrogates; identification of aesthetic and usability criteria of those who put together and use collections; analysis of sensory characteristics and semiotic functions of surrogates as signs; and developing roles for metadata in surrogates and recombination.
The workshop will offer an opportunity to contrast approaches for hyperstructures, including representation of hyperstructures; hypertext concepts applied in author hyperstructures; new applications of hyperstructures in physical environments or ubiquitous computing; supporting fiction and the creative arts; disposition concepts applied to hypertexts; and the use of arranged media (such as music) in hypertexts.

Int'l Conf. Future Networking Technologies (CoNEXT 2005)
24–27 Oct. 2005
CoNEXT is a joint conference resulting from the merging of two other workshops, namely one on interactive and distributed multimedia systems and another focusing on protocols for networked multimedia systems. Additionally, the Internet Charting and Quality-of-Service Technology Workshop is integrated into the conference. Potential topics for the conference include context awareness, experimental networking, Internet economics, mobile communication, wireless technologies, and autonomic communications.
