backstage.bbc.co.uk is proud to be title-sponsoring this year's Open Tech Conference 2005 (formerly known as Not Con).

Open Tech is a London-based, informal, low cost, one-day conference about all things related to technology – from "open source"-style web services through to repurposing electronic hardware! It takes place on Saturday 23rd July 2005, at Imperial College's Reynolds Building, Hammersmith, London.

Ted Nelson (the inventor of hypertext) is already confirmed as a speaker, with some other big names to be announced shortly.

Open Tech will also hold the official launch of backstage.bbc.co.uk. The BBC's Ben Metcalfe will be discussing why backstage was created and where it’s going now - plus showcasing some of the amazing work already submitted to backstage.bbc.co.uk.

However, it's not too late to submit your own presentation proposal. Do you want to speak about a cool project you've been working on or share some knowledge with your industry peers? There are opportunities for both "in depth" talks (30mins – 1hr) and 15 minute "lightening presentations" – check out the talk suggestion page on the Open Tech website for more details. Submissions must be made by midnight on Saturady 25th of June 2005.

Tickets will be available shortly, again check out the Open Tech website for details or join the event mailing list.
