>The book is dead.  Long live the book. Technology, in the form of the

>Will books and libraries be replaced by hypertext and multimedia, instant
>global audio and video?

>Join a distinguished panel as they consider the consequences of new
>technologies for communication and their impact on the book.  They
>address the culture of reading and its future, and consider the cultural,
>social and legal impact of digital technologies on society.

>We invite papers for a minitrack on "Genre in Digital Documents" as part of
>the Information Systems track at the Hawaii International Conference on
>System Sciences (HICSS).
>
>It is becoming increasingly clear that the succcessful use of digital media
>requires the emergence of new or transformed genres of digital
>communication. By genres we mean not just particular technologies or modes
>of communication or presentation (e.g., hypertext, email, the Web, and so
>on), but complex communicative forms anchored in specific institutions and
>practices -- the digital analogues, that is, of print forms like the
>newspaper, the annual report, the how-to manual, the scholarly journal.
>
>We invite papers that address digital genres from points of view like the
>following -- though this list is intended to be suggestive, not exhaustive:
>
>*       Issues in the transformation of print genres to digital form
>*       Genres in digital search and classification
>*       Genre theory and its application to digital documents
>*       Investigations of genre in use
>*       Analyses of particular document genres
>*       Designing in support of genre
>
>We invite two kinds of submissions: "position papers" that take on the
>broad questions of the role of genre in our understanding of digital
>documents, and  case studies, designs, or reports that shed light on
>particular aspects of digital genres.
