The Eleventh ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia

Tuesday May 30 to Saturday June 3, 2000 at the Menger Hotel, San Antonio, Texas, USA.

Hypermedia is a powerful concept for structuring and accessing information. Over the past decade, hypermedia has matured as a technology and has found its way into numerous information systems, with the World Wide Web being the best-known example.

As we enter the new millennium, Hypertext 2000 pushes forward by reminding us of Vannevar Bush's vision of building and sharing knowledge, and Douglas Engelbart's goal of bootstrapping communities. Hypertext is a medium for people to share ideas, to entertain, to argue, and to form new (and enrich existing) communities. As an interdisciplinary field, the hypertext community itself brings together researchers and practitioners from many disciplines: computing, art, literature, law, medicine, sociology, psychology, engineering and many others. Hypertext 2000 will continue and strengthen this trend.

Hypertext 2000 is the eleventh in the premier international series of ACM conferences on hypertext and hypermedia. The conference will provide a forum where attendees 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 co-operative work, databases, operating systems, software engineering, education, global information systems such as the World Wide Web, etc).



ACM Hypertext 2000 will be co-located with the ACM Digital Libraries 2000 conference, making it easy for delegates to attend both of these highly relevant conferences one after the other. For more information about Digital Libraries 2000, see

Both conferences are being held in the beautiful and historic Menger hotel, located in the heart of San Antonio, Texas. The city of San Antonio is a popular tourist destination, with plenty to see and do within walking distance of the Menger, as well as many other attractions within a short driving distance. See for more information on the hotel and its local attractions.
