Conference Social Events

HT 2008 took place in Pittsburgh, PA, a city which truly embodies the impact of technology change. 

SIGWEB Reception

Pittsburgh was home to TWO conferences that explored the fields of technology and users.  Just prior to the opening of HT 2008, the School of Information Sciences hosted JCDL 2008 -- in the same conference location!  This reception was for SIGWEB colleagues as well as researchers and students from both HT 2008 and JCDL 2008.

Conference Dinner

The Hypertext Organizing Committee arranged for all conference attendees to ride the historic Duquesne Incline to the elegant LeMont restaurant, which sits atop Mount Washington. LeMont offered not only a stellar menu and wine cellar, but amazing views of the City of Pittsburgh with its rivers and bridges.  This dining experience is part of your conference registration.

HT 2008 invited conference attendees to stay a little bit longer in Pittsburgh and enjoy the cultural amenities of our city.  We suggested two options:
