At-Con Web Pages
Minicon 30 was held in the very early days of the World Wide Web

Scan of the program book
[Added in 2011] We don't currently know of any clean electronic
copies of the program book, although page 90 indicates that such a thing
must have existed at some point. Anyway, here's
a PDF of a scan
(100MB) or a
quality version of the same (3MB).
