Subject: ACM Hypertext'98 Conference - Early Reg'n extended



We apologize if you recieve several copies of this email from different sources.

The Hypertext '98 program continues to become more exciting, with additional tutorials, and an important additional keynote supplementing the rich technical program of papers, panels, workshops, demos and posters.

Doug Engelbart, considered one of the founding fathers of hypertext, and winner of the 1997 ACM Turing Award -- will be giving a major keynote speech on the topic "Collective IQ" at the 'bridge luncheon' linking the Hypertext '98 and Digital Libraries '98 conferences. Building on over four decades of work on augmenting human intellect, Doug's talk will explore how developing an 'improvement infrastructure' can help bootstrap organizations to much higher achievement.


To make it easier for you to benefit from these new events we have extended the early registration deadline to June 10th.

To register for the conference, feel free to use the registration form enclosed at the end of this message -- or any of the four methods available via the conference web site at http://www.ks.com/ht98.

Below is a recap of the events and activities at HT98, beginning with our two other keynoters: John Leggett and Stuart Moulthrop


"CAMPING ON THE BANKS OF THE HYPERMEDIA LITERATURE:
WAITING FOR (A HYPERLITERATE) CIVILIZATION TO ARRIVE" Keynote Speaker: Professor John J. Leggett, Department of Computer Science, Texas A&M University, USA.

Abstract: After all, our intellectual product is all that endures. What legacy are we leaving for the future? Is this the legacy we wish to leave? Are we making the impact in the world that we thought we could when we started this conference series?

This talk will concentrate on the body of literature produced by the hypertext conference community. I will trace the previous threads of research through the literature and discuss where I see these threads going in the future. It will be like camping on the banks or bluffs overlooking the hypertext conference literature. We will be trying to identify the rudiments of a civilization. Will we find civilization? Or just more camps? Will we find a literate culture? Could we dare hope for a hyperliterate culture? I will give you my perspective on the above and outline some ideas of things we could do as a community to move towards a more rewarding civilization. Despite the topic of this talk, it will be light-hearted with many fond remembrances and anecdotes!


"STRAIGHT TALK FOR TROUBLED TIMES, OR:

   THE STREET FINDS ITS USES" Keyonte Speaker: Associate Professor Stuart Moulthrop, School of Communications Design at University of Baltimore.

Abstract: A few years ago Thomas Landauer, a key figure in hypertext research, wrote an indispensable book called "The Trouble with Computers". According to Landauer, society fails to understand that information technologies breed complexity in almost every area of application; yet inexplicably we expect these technologies to deliver simplicity, efficiency, and a straightforward return on investment. Landauer answers these false expectations with
"user-centered design" (UCD), asking us to shift attention from
systems and software to people, their activities, and their needs. Though this is a promising thesis, it begs some primary questions: Who defines appropriate uses of information technology? How do new technological affordances affect our concepts of value and productivity? Could a more basic process precede UCD, one in which we redefine use itself? The talk applies these questions to the most notorious area of hypertext development, HTTP and the World Wide Web. What has the Web meant so far for business, academia, and society in general? Has widespread and relatively intense engagement with hypertext produced any changes in our understanding of this technology? What does it mean to use the Web?
