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

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.
