UWA at XTech 2007 — 2 April 2007

The theme for this year’s XTech conference is "The Ubiquitous Web". Conference organizer Edd Dumbill writes "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 to the web, and the increasing blurring of the lines between virtual worlds and our own." UWA WG Chair, Dave Raggett will describe W3C work in this area, and you may also be interested in the Geo-location BoF organized by W3C's Mike Smith. XTech is being held 15-18 May 2007, Paris, France.
