In 1987 the first Hypertext conference was held. At that time
hypertext was in its infancy, with a few but important systems
available, e.g. KMS, NoteCards, Storyspace, Intermedia, Augment,
HyperCard, and Guide. There was even a working Xanadu prototype.
Since then hypertext has found its way into information kiosks,
on-line manuals, collaborative authoring systems, and the World
Wide Web. The Hypertext 97 conference will make it evident that
the popularity of hypertext still inspires new radical ideas
within a multitude of disciplines.

Hypertext 97 is the eighth in the premier international series of
conferences on hypertext and hypermedia theory, systems, and
applications sponsored by the ACM. Locations alternate between
the United States and Europe, with this year in England.
Hypertext 97 will offer a forum for presentation and discussion
of the latest results in hypermedia research and development,
including WWW technology. We encourage your attendance.

Technical Programme
Hypertext 97 will provide a common setting for researchers,
practising professionals and students to share experiences and to
present results about hypermedia authoring, publishing, system
construction, human-computer interaction, digital libraries, and
electronic literature. The conference attracts distinguished
attendees from a diverse range of fields: computing, psychology,
literature, sociology, engineering, law, medicine--many different
fields. Hypertext 97 will provide a forum for presentation and
discussion of exciting and original developments in hypertext and
hypermedia through several different technical formats.
