TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design), arguably the world's most influential gathering of creative thinkers, is coming back to Europe - and staying. TEDGlobal 2009, the companion to the TED conference in California, is to be held in Oxford, UK, July 21-24, 2009, and every year after that.

TED curator Chris Anderson says that one of the main reasons to return to Oxford (after a tentative trial in 2005) is the more convenient time zone for simulcasts of the conference program to the growing TED communities in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.

TEDGlobal 2009 was officially announced at London's Tate Modern last Wednesday, at an exclusive preview event hosted by Chris Anderson, Bono, Sir Ken Robinson, and Liz Murdoch. The theme for TEDGlobal 2009 will be 'The Substance of Things Not Seen.'
