SVG Open 2009: SVG Coming of Age

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

The final registration for the SVG Open 2009 conference is coming up the end of this month! Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG, is an open, browser-based standard that makes it easy to create interactive web graphics. SVG is great as it’s part of the HTML 5 family of technologies while being search engine friendly; easy for JavaScript and HTML developers to adopt; exportable from your favorite drawing tools like Adobe Illustrator ™; and straightforward to emit from server-side systems like PHP and Google App Engine. It’s also available in all modern browsers.

Google is helping to host the SVG Open 2009 conference this fall at their Mountain View campus. The theme this year is SVG Coming of Age. It will be held at the Google Crittenden Campus in Mountain View, California on October 2nd through 4th 2009, with additional workshops on October 5.

Co-sponsored by W3C, the SVG Open conference series is the premier forum for SVG designers, developers, and implementors to share ideas, experiences, products, and strategies. Over 60 presentations will be delivered by SVG experts from all over the world, tackling topics such as design workflows, mobile SVG, Web application development, Web mapping, geo-location based services, and much more.

Two panel discussions will allow the audience to discuss ideas and issues with the W3C SVG Working Group and implementors. Many W3C Members will be participating, including Google, IBM, Mozilla, Opera, Oracle, Quickoffice and Vodafone. The conference schedule and confirmed keynote speakers are now available.

The deadline for early-bird registration is August 31st, so get your registrations in soon! Full-price registration will remain available until October 1, and limited on-site registration may also be available at the registration desk during the conference. The W3C SVG Working Group and W3C’s Chris Lilley and Doug Schepers will participate.

A wide range of exciting talks are on the docket. Here’s a small sample:

* Ajax Toolkits supporting SVG graphics: Raphaël, dojo, Ample SDK, SVG Web Project, JSXGraph
* SVG in Internet Explorer and at Google
