Meeting Description:

The workshop is organized as part of this year's Conference of the German Society for Computational Linguistics and Language Technology (GSCL), hosted by the Applied Computational Linguistics group in the Department of Linguistics at Potsdam University. The GLDV Working Group on Hypermedia is offering a one-day workshop dedicated to usability aspects for hypermedia systems and applications in the E-Humanities (corpus retrieval frontends, web information systems, community grids etc.).

Since Jakob Nielsen pointed out the main criteria for user-friendly hypermedia systems - easy to learn, efficient to use, easy to remember, few errors, pleasant to use - in the mid-nineties, usability research is engaged in the statistical investigation and empiric validation of ranking methods. One goal is the improvement of usability on the internet, currently focusing on up-to-date topics like Web 2.0 and multimodal interfaces.

The goal of this workshop is to create a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in hypermedia systems in the context of natural language processing. By offering paper presentations (30 min.) and discussion panels, we hope to stimulate and facilitate an active exchange on unique and interdisciplinary ideas, practices, and methods.
