IDEAlliance's XTech 2005 to Cover Hot Trends in Browser Technology

As Mozilla, Google, Flickr, Microsoft and Others Redefine Web Interfaces, Conference Will Feature Insights and Perspective from Field's Top Thought Leaders

Alexandria, Va. - April 14, 2005 - XTech 2005, the premier European conference for developers and managers working with XML and Web technologies, will feature top minds covering one of the most dynamic - and controversial - topics in the industry: the radical changes taking place in Web browser technology.  XTech 2005 (formerly XML Europe) is being held 24-27 May, 2005, at the Amsterdam RAI Centre, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

"The Web browser is a hot topic again," says Edd Dumbill, XTech 2005 conference chair. "As supporters of 'Ajax'-style Web technology create ever more powerful applications, traditional graphical user interfaces face strong competition.  At XTech, we'll address the future of Web-based interfaces head on." 

Leading off on Wednesday, 25 May are sessions from two of the strongest competitors in the field, both of whom have clear ideas about the future of user interfaces. Rob Relyea, lead program manager with Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) will explain XAML, Microsoft Window's new user interface platform. Ben Goodger, lead engineer for Mozilla Firefox, will counter with a presentation on XUL, Mozilla's user interface toolkit.

The keynote speakers at XTech 2005 will be Paula Le Dieu, Co-Director, Creative Archive, BBC; Jean Paoli, Senior Director of XML Architecture, Microsoft; and Mike Shaver, Mozilla Foundation.
