From http://svgopen.org/2009/participate.shtml :

The 7th international conference on Scalable Vector Graphics will take place from October 2-4, 2009, in Mountain View, California, hosted by Google at the Crittenden Campus. At this conference you can learn about subjects varying from specialized technical visualizations to interactive multimedia art. On the program there are presentations, beginner and advanced level workshops, and the opportunity to meet people from the SVG community, industry and the W3C SVG Working Group.

The SVG Open 2009 organizing committee is looking for contributors presenting a paper or teaching a course. Presenters are asked to submit an extended abstract in English with an approximate length of 400 to 800 words by May 15 to http://www.svgopen.org/. The abstracts are reviewed by a reviewing committee and presenters will be informed about acceptance on or before June 26. If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit your full paper by August 31, according to instructions that will be sent to you. Accepted abstracts, papers and presentations will be published in web proceedings.

We are still investigating a venue for holding workshops and courses. At the moment we cannot guarantee that courses can be held. Nevertheless, since courses and workshops had always been popular at past SVG Open conferences we will do our best to find a suitable venue. Potential course instructors are asked to submit a course outline by May 15. The outlines will be reviewed by a committee and instructors will be informed about acceptance on or before June 26. Accepted course instructors will receive a free conference pass and admission to the dinner event. Accepted course outlines will be published as course descriptions in the program. Therefore they should be directed at those who might register for the course rather than the reviewers. Courses are 150 minutes in length, scheduled for the morning and afternoon at the day before or after the main conference. We are interested in proposals for both beginner courses and advanced courses to cater to the diverse interests of all conference attendees. Here is a list of topics of potential interest for courses. Feel free to either volunteer for one of these or propose your own topic.

    * Introduction to SVG
    * SVG Authoring Techniques
    * Creating Mobile SVG content
    * UI Design
    * Using SVG Tools
    * CSS
    * XSLT
