Hypermedia is a powerful concept for creating, organising, and accessing information. Over the past decade, hypermedia has matured as a technology and has found its way into a rich variety of application domains and information systems, with the World Wide Web and its applications being the best-known examples.

Having entered the new millennium, Hypertext 2001 pushes forward by reminding us of pioneers like Vannevar Bush, Douglas Engelbart, and Ted Nelson, while we design novel and pervasive hypermedia technologies and applications for the next millennium. Hypermedia enables people to create and share ideas, to entertain, argue, and form new communities as well as enriching existing ones. As an interdisciplinary field, the hypertext/hypermedia community itself brings together researchers and practitioners from many disciplines: computing, art, literature, law, medicine, sociology, psychology, engineering and many others. Hypertext 2001 will continue and strengthen this trend. Hypertext 2001 is the twelfth in the premier international series of 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, infrastructures, hyperbases, etc) and the use of hypermedia concepts and technologies in a variety of domains (e.g., authoring, publishing, human-computer interaction, digital libraries, electronic literature, computer-supported co-operative work, software engineering, education, community building, World Wide Web, etc). For information on previous conferences, see Hypertext 2000, and SigWEB.

Hypertext 2001 is being held at the campus of University of Aarhus, Århus, Denmark. The city of Århus is the capital of the provinces of Denmark, and despite its size (quarter of a million inhabitants), Århus has the atmosphere of a big city. Århus is called the smallest big city in the world, and everything you need is in walking distance from the University and the downtown hotels where you can stay for the conference. See Tourist Århus for information on the city and its local attractions.
