Abstract (please use no less than 300 words to describe your proposal)

Wikis are Web-based collaborative systems that allow users to create, share and interlink content. Existing wikis restrict users to edit and arrange text with other embedded media formats. Unfortunately moving pictures are handled as a whole without considering their temporal dimension. Their time-related composition and association with other parts of the wiki are withhold from the users influence. Thus, current wikis cannot be used to host or author rich dynamic and interactive hypervideos along with hypertext elements. In this presentation I introduce ViWiki, an approach for seamless and collaborative integration of interactive hypervideos into existing wiki environments. ViWiki combines the wiki metaphor with a direct manipulation user interface for hypervideo authoring and particular markup conventions. In a first use case we transfered a book about a German Concentration Camp into a wiki and added further hypervideo interviews with survivals and contemporary witnesses.
