The theme for this year's conference is "The Ubiquitous Web". As the
web reaches further into our lives, we will consider the increasing
ubiquity of connectivity, what it means for real world objects to
connect with the web, and the increasing blurring of the lines between
virtual worlds and our own.
The technologies underpinning these developments include mobile
devices, RFID, Second Life, location-aware services, Google Earth and
more. The issues surrounding them include privacy, intellectual
property, activism, politics, regulation and standards.
XTech is comprised of four thematic tracks:
* Applications: web applications, vocabularies, publishing,
content management, case studies
* Browser Technologies: browsers, mobile, user interface, related
issues and standards.
* Core Technology: the heart of web technology, markup, protocols,
semantics and more.
* Open Data: technology, experiences and policy behind open access to
More detail on the content for each track can be found at
Keynotes for XTech 2007 include Adam Greenfield, author of "Everyware:
The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing", Gavin Starks of Global Cool
and designers of the future Matt Webb and Jack Schulze.
Last year's schedule can be viewed on the XTech 2006 web site
