A paper by Associate Professor Kenneth Anderson, along with Frank Allan Hansen and Niels Olof Bouvin of the University of Aarhus, won the Douglas Engelbart Best Paper Award at Hypertext 2006 held recently in Odense, Denmark. The Seventeenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia: Tools for Supporting Social Structures focused specifically on tools that help to represent, model and interact with social structures, including cultural, literary, linguistic, and other types of social structures.

The paper was titled Templates and Queries in Contextual Hypermedia and

"presents a new definition of context for context-aware computing based on a model that relies on dynamic queries over structured objects. This new model enables developers to flexibly specify the relationship between context and context data for their context-aware applications. We discuss a framework, HyConSC, that implements this model and describe how it can be used to build new contextual hypermedia systems. Our framework aids the developer in the iterative development of contextual queries (via a dynamic query browser) and offers support for context matching, a key feature of contextual hypermedia. We have tested the framework with data and sensors taken from the HyCon contextual hypermedia system and are now migrating HyCon to this new framework."

The Douglas Engelbart Best Paper Award is given to the best paper presented at the annual ACM SIGWEB Hypertext Conference. The award is named after Douglas Engelbart, in recognition of his life's work and contributions to the field of hypertext and hypermedia.
