   XTECH 2006 Call for Papers Deadline -- Monday 9 January

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The Call for Papers for XTECH 2006 is now open. Visit http://www.xtech.org for more details. The deadline for paper and tutorial submissions is 9 January 2006.

XTech 2006 will take place from 16-19 May in the heart of Amsterdam, at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, Dam Square.

The theme for 2006, "Building Web 2.0", recognises the key place of standards-based and open technology in enabling the next generation of web applications. Practitioners and leaders from all disciplines are invited to participate in presenting and discussing the technology and design issues behind the changing web.

Building on the success of last year's conference, this year's tracks include:

  • Applications: "mashups", frameworks, publishing, open source solutions, aggregation
  • Browser Technology: browsers, AJAX, design and interaction implications
  • Core Technologies: the XML and RDF family, RSS/Atom, databases,
    nuts-and-bolts tech
  • Open Data: information design, identity, tagging, privacy, trust, Creative Commons, DRM, government

Subject matter is given as a guide, but is by no means exclusive! Read more information in the Track Descriptions.

There are several ways you can participate. Follow the links for more detail.

  • Presentations: 40 minute talks, to be accompanied by a short paper (1,000+ words) submitted before the conference. Talks are chosen by peer review of abstracts.
  • Tutorials: 3 or 6 hour sessions. Suitable for more established topics than presentations, to aim for mass appeal.
  • Panel Discussions: new this year, we want to incorporate discussion sessions into each track, with feedback given to the conference. You should nominate a chair (can be yourself) and have some idea of panelists to give short position statements.
  • Related Events and BOFs: there is room available to co-locate your event with XTech. We'll also have BOF tables over lunch, and signup boards for evening sessions.

There will also be Product Presentations, from vendors or open source projects, and a few "late breaking" slots reserved for hot and developing topics. Separate calls for participation will be made for these.
