Hypertext and hypermedia involve a diverse range of technologies that support structured knowledge. The Eighteenth International ACM Conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia is operating under the banner "Five Autonomous Programmes, One Unified Conference" to reflect that although there is a wide range of research areas within the community, all have a common interest in hypertext and hypermedia. Hypertext 2007 will therefore have the following five autonomous programmes each with its own programme chair and committee, with the aim of bringing together a vast range of people and interests to a single venue.

- Hypertext Models and Theory (
Scholarly, Structural, Dynamic and Adaptive Models and Theory of Hypertext.
Chair: Paul De Bra (Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands)

- Practical Hypertext (
Applications of hypertext including The Web, Semantic Web, Web Engineering, and Web Design.
Chairs: Helen Ashman (The University of Nottingham, UK), Alexandra Cristea (The University of Warwick, UK)

- Hypertext and Society (
The effect of hypertext on Developing Regions, Social Tagging and Annotation, Blogs, and eLearning.
Chairs: Hugh C Davis (University of Southampton, UK), Dave Millard (University of Southampton, UK)

- Hypertext and the Person (
Human Centred hypertext including Browsers and Interfaces, Web Accessibility, Usability, Evaluation and Observational Studies.
Chair: Vicki Hanson (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, USA)

- Hypertext, Culture, and Communication (
Art, Literature, Philosophy, and the hypertext tools to support them.
Chair: Mark Bernstein (Eastgate Systems, USA)

In addition to the autonomous programmes, we will also be hosting:
- Hypertext Reading Room ( - Sponsored by Eastgate:
This allows participants to submit hypertext systems to the conference in order for others within the community to gain hands on experience in using the system.
Chairs: Jamie Blustein (Dalhousie University, USA), Rosemary Simpson (Brown University, USA)

- Posters & Demonstrations (
Provides a great way to test new ideas, generate interest in a research area, or describe useful or interesting work that is not substantial enough for a full paper presentation.
Chair:Jessica Rubart (Arvato Direct Services, Germany)

- Student Research Competition ( - Sponsored by the ACM and Microsoft:
Provides students the opportunity to participate in an ACM conference and get visibility for their research (including Arts / Humanities) by displaying a poster and making a brief presentation to a panel of judges.
Chair: Mark Truran (University of Teesside, UK)

- Birds Of A Feather (
A community discussion forum where people with similar interests can flock together and discuss their research.
Chair: Jim Whitehead (University of California, Santa Cruz, USA)

- Carole Goble (School of Computer Science - University of Manchester, UK)
- Wendy Hall (Computer Science - University of Southampton, UK)

Humanities Honour Scheme
In order to support and continue with the interdisciplinary aspect of the Hypertext conferences, the "Humanities Honour Sceme" is introduced. With this scheme we would like to ensure that attendees from Humanities get as much discounts as Computer Scientists.

Creche - Sponsored by Hoppers
Hypertext 2007 will be able to provide free creche services to delegates with small children. The creche can have child carers for children aged 6 months and above.
