BACKGROUND

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. 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 invite your
participation.

TECHNICAL PROGRAMME

Hypertext 97 will provide a common setting for researchers, practicing
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:

     papers=20
     panels and perspectives=20
     technical briefings=20
     demonstrations=20
     posters=20
     courses=20

In addition, there will be joint sessions with the Sixth World Wide
Web Conference which will be running concurrently in California.

 *  Hypermedia in education and training=20

***********************************************************************
Submission of Short-Papers

Short papers represent late breaking research or interesting results
that does not justify a full paper. Short papers are invited on, but
not restricted to, the above topics. They will appear in the
proceedings, and will be given a presentation time (10 minutes) at the
conference. Because of their length, care must be given to presenting
a single clear idea, and to stress its importance.

Submissions: Short papers must be written in English, contain a
maximum of 1100 words (excluding figures), and in no case should
exceed 2 single-spaced pages. The paper must include title, author
names, affiliation, and email address of one contact person.
Submission is electronic only, either plain text or HTML.

Send email submissions no later than January 17, 1997 to=20

***********************************************************************
Submission of Demonstrations

Demonstrations allow attendees to get first-hand views of innovative
hypertext technology and applications and talk informally with system
developers and authors. Presenters should be individuals who have been
directly involved with the development of the system, and who are
aware of the novel ideas embodied by their system.

Submissions: Submit a proposal of at most three pages describing the
planned demonstration. The proposal should include a description of
noteworthy and distinguishing ideas or approaches your demo will
illustrate; an explanation of how your demo will illustrate these
ideas or approaches; information about the person(s) who will present
the demo; a 100-word summary for inclusion in a program description;
and hardware and software requirements, including electrical
requirements.

Please provide the following cover information: the title, the name
and affiliation of the author(s), and complete address (including
telephone, fax, email) for the author to whom correspondence should be
addressed. The proposal may be submitted by e-mail or anonymous FTP to
the addresses indicated below. Electronic submissions are encouraged
in either postscript or ASCII format.

Submissions which should arrive no later than January 17, 1997 should
be sent to:

***********************************************************************
Submission of Posters

Poster presentations enable researchers to present late-breaking
results, significant work in progress, or work that is best
communicated through conversation. Poster sessions let conference
attendees exchange ideas one-on-one with authors, and let authors
discuss their work in detail with those attendees most deeply
interested in the same topic.

Submissions: Submit an extended abstract of at most two pages
emphasizing the problem, what was done, and why the work is
important. Please provide cover information: the title, the name and
affiliation of the author(s), and complete address (including
telephone, fax, email) for the author to whom correspondence should be
addressed. Proposals may be submitted by e-mail or anonymous FTP to
the addresses indicated below. Electronic submissions are encouraged
in either postscript or ASCII format.

Submission, which should arrive no later than January 17, 1997 should
