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.  
The conference will take place over 3 days, with each of the Five  
Autonomous Programmes having a dedicated session. There will also be  
scheduled sessions for the additional programmes that will take place  
at the conference.

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.
