Proceedings of the Hypertext Standardization Workshop (Gaithersburg, Maryland, January 16-18, 1990).
Moline, Judi, Ed.; And Others
This report constitutes the proceedings of a three day workshop on Hypertext Standardization held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on January 16-18, 1990. Efforts towards standardization of hypertext have already been initiated in various interested organizations. The major purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of existing and proposed approaches to standardization, and to consider hypertext system definitions, to identify viable approaches for pursuing standards, to seek commonality among alternatives whenever possible, and to make progress towards a coordinated plan for standards development, i.e., a hypertext reference model. The workshop included plenary sessions and three discussion groups. This proceedings includes 14 papers that were selected for presentation in plenary sessions, reports of the discussion groups, and supplementary materials. Major conclusions of the workshop were that the discussion groups should continue their technical efforts, and that NIST should sponsor at least one more workshop to provide a forum for public discussion of progress. References are included throughout the document. (Author/DB)
