The Hypertext 2020 organizing team wants to help ensure broad participation in the conference and so has created the HT 2020 Fair Access Initiative.  This initiative is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its disruption to daily life and the economies of many countries, especially those considered to be developing countries.  The Fair Access Initiative is making available several dozen free registrations to this year’s virtual conference. Applicants may be students, researchers, or professionals, though students in developing countries are especially encouraged to apply.

To apply:

  1. Submit a short statement (1-2 paragraphs) explaining your interest in participating in HT 2020 in an email Dr. Ethan Munson (

  2. Submit evidence of your connection to a university, research laboratory, or relevant IT business.  This evidence can be a link to one or more institutional web pages (sent in the email from item #1) or it can be a brief letter or email from a supervisor or advising professor.  Again, this evidence should be sent to Dr. Ethan Munson (

Applications should be sent no later than July 12, 2020.
