It is well known that the space-time coordinates and the corresponding Dp-brane world-volume become non-commutative when the ends of the open string are attached to a Dp-brane with the Neveu-Schwarz background field . In this paper, we extend these considerations by including an additional dilaton field , linear in . In that case, the conformal part of the world-sheet metric becomes a new non-commutative variable, while the coordinate in the direction orthogonal to the hyper plane becomes commutative.
