SVG Open 2011, the 9th International Conference on Scalable Vector Graphics will held on October 17 to 20, 2011, at Cambridge MA | USA. This year's theme, "Where SVG Meets the Web," underscores SVG's inclusion in HTML5 and its growing importance on the Web.
SVG is also the declarative vector graphics format for Windows 8 Metro style apps built using HTML.
At the SVG Open 2011, "you will have the opportunity to learn to use it to create effective and compelling web content, learn techniques for developing SVG software solutions, and see the latest developments from the W3C," reads the conference description.
"You will meet the creators of SVG applications in person, the authors of the SVG specifications, and you will have the opportunity to provide your own input for future development."
This year's tracks feature SVG Authoring Tools, SVG for Charting and Visualization, SVG for Games and Interactive Applications, SVG for Web Applications and HMI, Publishing and Printing with SVG, SVG Implementations and Implementation Issues, SVG for Webmapping and GIS, and a set of Case Studies of SVG usage.
Also attending are members of the W3C SVG Working Group who will share information, solicit input, and respond to questions about features proposed for SVG 2.0, as well as the integration of certain CSS and SVG features as contemplated by the CSS-SVG Effects Task Force. Two areas of particular interest are applying SVG Filter Effects to HTML elements and CSS Animations and Transitions to SVG elements.
