Hypertext describes a way of storing and retrieving information that involves storing data in discrete packets or nodes. The nodes are often textual, but can also contain graphical information, audio information, program source codes, or other forms of data. Hypertext is designed to be used through an interactive browser and manipulated by an editor of some sort. Interest in the subjects of hypertext and hypermedia from both the academic as well as from the industrial communities, has increased dramatically over the past three years. This volume presents the proceedings of the first European Conference on Hypertext (ECHT90) held in Paris in November, 1990, where researchers, developers, and users met to discuss relevant themes in hypertext and hypermedia. Hypertext is at the intersection of many fields including computer science and cognitive science, and this research-oriented volume will be of interest to a broad spectrum of professionals ranging from theoreticians, system developers, and endusers of hypertext applications, such as medical information systems and computer aided design.
