    Call for Participation: First International Zigzag Workshop Held at ACM
    Conference on Hypertext, Aarhus, Denmark Tuesday, August 14, 2001

    Zigzag is a novel hypertext paradigm, invented by Ted Nelson, that embodies
    ideas about information representation, processing and access. Fundamentally,
    ZigZag is about cross-viewable multidimensional lists. It provides an unusual
    paradigm for information structures, with interesting new designs and models
    for input, viewing, interaction, data structures and programming. Naturally,
    this has a number of applications for hypertext and hypermedia; it also offers
    its own new and engrossing set of problems. This workshop, a part of the ACM
    Hypertext 2001 conference, is aimed at disseminating information about the
    ideas behind Zigzag, demonstrating the implementations of those ideas and
    discussing their relevance to future hypermedia information systems.

    The workshop will consist of presentations and group discussions together with
    hands-on demonstrations and tutorials for those unfamiliar with Zigzag. A
    tentative list of invited presentations has been drawn up:

       Introduction to ZigZag - Ted Nelson

       The first ZigZag implementation - Andrew Pam

       The Gzigzag project - Tuomas J. Lukka
