Preliminary Call for Participation


Third ACM Conference on Hypertext

San Antonio, Texas, USA

December 15-18, 1991

Hypertext '91 is an international research conference on hypertext.
The ACM Hypertext Conference occurs in the United States every
second year in alternation with ECHT, the European Conference
on Hypertext.

Hypertext systems provide computer support for locating,
gathering, annotating, and organizing information. Hypertext
systems are being designed for information collections of diverse
material in heterogeneous media, hence the alternate name, hypermedia.

Hypertext is by nature multi-disciplinary, involving researchers in
many fields, including computer science, cognitive science,
rhetoric, and education, as well as many application domains. This
conference will interest a broad spectrum of professionals in these
fields ranging from theoreticians through behavioral researchers to
systems researchers and applications developers. The conference
will offer technical events in a variety of formats as well as guest
speakers and opportunities for informal special interest groups.

Suggested Formats and Topics

We are inviting you to participate in HT'91 in one of seven
different areas of the technical program: papers, panels, courses,
videos, technical briefings, posters, or demos. Submitters may be
invited to participate in the technical program in a different
category from that in which they submitted their work.

Submissions in all areas of hypertext research are encouraged.

Topics of interest would include the following:

Paradigms for information access
Information design
Theories, models, and frameworks
Experimental or observational studies of use
Workplace deployment issues
Structuring hypertext documents for reading and retrieval
Underlying technologies (persistent object stores, link
services, databases, information retrieval, access control)
