This year, Hypertext and Digital Libraries share a
combined tutorials program. We've assembled a program
of tutorials specifically designed to appeal to
attendees of both conferences. Most of the tutorials
are held between the two conferences, so that whether
you've just finished attending HT '00, or just about
to attend DL '00, attending one or more tutorials is
easy. And, staying in San Antonio for a weekend
tutorial may end up saving you money on airfare with a
Saturday night stay over!
Information about pricing can be found on the Registration page.
