Seventh ACM Conference on Hypertext
Washington DC, USA, March 16-20, 1996
``Docuverse Takes Form...''
In the `70s Ted Nelson coined the term ``docuverse'' to describe a global
network of interlinked and personalizable information. Now, two decades
later, the docuverse is taking form. Graphics and computing technology
now brings inexpensive hypermedia technology to everyone, and the
World Wide Web is linking all those everyones together.
Hypertext '96 is the seventh in the premier international series of ACM
conferences on hypertext and hypermedia theory, systems, and applications.
Originally a fall conference, the annual event has been moved to a spring
schedule; locations will continue to alternate between the United States
We have enjoyed famous and picturesque settings for past conferences
in this series -- Chapel Hill, Pittsburgh, Versailles, San Antonio, Milan,
Seattle, Edinburgh -- and we think
Washington will extend that record nicely.
The city is very well connected for both international and US domestic
travel. The conference hotel is the
Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, MD,,
located right on the DC subway for easy access to the downtown sights
as well as the suburbs of Maryland and Virginia.
We certainly hope you will enjoy the conference setting, but the main
attraction at Hypertext '96 is the technical program.
We will present the latest results in Hypermedia research and development,
including WWW technology. Plan now to visit the US national
capital for a few days of professional development and collegial interaction.

The Engelbart Best Paper Award
At ECHT'94 in Edinburgh, SIGLINK, the ACM's Special Interest Group on
Hypertext and Hypermedia, announced the inauguration of a new annual
award, the Engelbart Award, for best conference paper. The award is
named after Doug Engelbart, in recognition of his life's work and

presentation of this prestigious award, which carries with it a $1,000
cash prize, will take place at Hypertext '96.
