One thought on “Programme

  1. I would like to comment on the format of this page (HTML with hyper-links and so on) from the usability point of view.

    Perhaps this is a standard way of doing things in EHF, I have not been around for long enough to know, but I think it deserves praise and encouragement. It takes a lot of dedicated effort and time to present information in this way. I find this a really useful way to present a conference programme. The website format puts information in context. Having paper titles hyper-linked to the abstracts (and even papers themselves) is a great idea.

    One of the many downsides of file-based electronic presentation of information (for example, the entire proceedings in a large PDF file) is in its linear nature – a lot of contextual cues that are available in printed proceedings and programmes get lost when presented in an electronic file that one can only scroll through linearly. Producing and presenting such information on a website instead, with hyper-links and hierarchical structure is a great way to add some of that contextual element back in.

    Please continue with this effort, it is really worthwhile.
