XTech 2006: “Building Web 2.0” — 16-19 May 2006, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I'll be there, from the 17th until the 19th.

XTech 2006 is the premier European conference for developers, information designers and managers working with web and standards-based technologies. XTech brings together the worlds of web development, open source, semantic web and web standards.

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:

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. As well as XML, XTech 2006 will cover web development, weblogging, search, the semantic web and more.

If you're also going to XTech, please drop me an e-mail so we can talk to each other live, or something like that!
