[ANN] Call for Participation, XTech 2005, 24-27 May, Amsterdam, Netherlands


"XML, the Web and Beyond"

24-27 May, 2005. Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Submissions of abstracts for papers and tutorials are now being
accepted for XTech 2005.  The deadline for proposals is January 7, 2005.

XTech 2005 is a conference for developers and managers working with
XML and Web technologies, bringing together the worlds of XML and web
development, open standards, open source and open data. This year's
tracks include:

 * Core Technologies (XML specs and processing, including RDF, OWL etc.)
 * Applications (vocabularies, applications and experience)
 * Browser Technology (Mozilla, XAML, WhatWG, forms) 
 * Open Data (policy & technology issues of putting data on the web)

A full description of tracks, including suitable topic areas, can be
found on the web: <http://www.xtech-conference.org/2005/tracks.asp>

Formerly known as the XML Europe conference, XTech has widened its
scope to incorporate neighboring technologies from the web and
business.  As the use of XML broadens out beyond traditional core
topics, we want to reflect that in the conference.

The two new areas in this conference reflect the lively development in
web user interfaces and the growing experimentation with open access
to data at the personal, corporate and government levels.

More information on the new tracks and their relevance to the XML
community can be found in Edd Dumbill's XML.com article on XTech 2005
online at <http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/11/10/deviant.html>

Abstracts will be blind-reviewed by a selection of peer reviewers.  If
successful, you will be asked to produce a paper for the conference.

More details and a submission form are available at 

Please don't hesitate to contact Edd Dumbill, programme chair, via
email at <edd@usefulinc.com> if you have any questions.
