 ACM HyperText 2000
 May 30 - June 4
 San Antonio, Texas

The HT 2000 conference is the eleventh ACM (Association for Computing
Machinery) conference on hypertext and hypermedia. The conference will
provide a forum where delegates can present, exchange and discuss
original ideas and exciting experiences relating to hypermedia
(objects, links, paths, spaces, time, collections, navigational aids,
etc.) and the use of hypermedia concepts and technologies in special
domains (e.g., authoring, publishing, human-computer interaction,
digital libraries, electronic literature, computer-supported
cooperative work, databases, operating systems, software engineering,
education, and global information systems such as the WWW, etc.).

The Hypertext 2000 conference will run back-to-back with the ACM Digital
Libraries conference, starting with Hypertext 2000 from May 30th to June
3rd, and continuing with Digital Libraries from June 2nd to June 7th.
Both conferences are held in the attractive Menger Hotel in San Antonio,
Texas. The conference URLs where you can find details of the entire
programmes can be found at and
