SchemaSoft and W3C to Host SVG Open Conference in July 2003
Vancouver, BC, Canada. May 06, 2003.
SchemaSoft and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) will host the 2nd annual SVG Open Conference on Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) in Vancouver, British Columbia from July 13-18, 2003 at the Westin Bayshore Resort & Marina. The SVG Open 2003 Conference and Exhibition is a forum for software developers, Web developers, graphic artists and other technical specialists to exchange ideas, methods and advances related to Web graphics.
SVG is the recently adopted W3C open standard for delivering rich graphical content over the Internet. "The SVG Open Conference is an excellent venue for people to educate themselves on the format and explore how to effectively implement the technology," said Dr. Philip Mansfield, President of SchemaSoft. The conference will include workshops, presentations, and a product exhibit area. The sessions will explore techniques to author, process and use SVG in a variety of areas including content delivery to mobile devices, interactive mapping, computer aided design (CAD), print publishing, multimedia, business reporting and scientific visualization.
