This paper highlights the problems associated with placing technical multimedia materials on-line on the World Wide Web. It discusses obstacles in (a) automating the collection and processing of the multimedia components, and (b) limitations in the interface design imposed by restrictions associated with continuous media and especially audio. Using as paradigm the publishing of multimedia technical conference proceedings (“DAGS'95 Conference on Electronic Publishing and the Information Superhighway”), the paper proposes a manageable framework for the production of such proceedings, one that allows parallel development of the submitted papers in hypertext format and of the time-based media (talks) in multimedia format.
