The first European Conference on HyperText took place at the Palais de Congres de Versailles from the 27th to the 30th November 1990. The information linked to this note contains a summary biased by the personal views of Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau who attended from CERN.

The conference was structured into a day of tutorials (4 parallel in the morning, four in the afternoon) and three days of paper sessions parallel with panel sessions. The site was obviously chosen because of the strong influence of INRIA (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique) which is located in nearby Rocquencourt. The proceedings were already printed and available at registration time. They include the question/answers of the panel sessions, surely a world first!
