I would like to invite the Webkit developers, specifically the developers
of the SVG and graphics part, content creators and users
to present their SVG content, workflows, widgets and tools at the SVG Open
conference. I would also appreciate if we could have an Webkit or iPhone related course or
demonstration at this year's SVG Open conference. Thank you for
considering an abstract submission. See CfP below:


Call for Papers, SVG Open 2008

The 6th international conference on Scalable Vector Graphics will take
place from August 26 to 28 in Nuremberg, Southern Germany. 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, a technical
exhibition, and the opportunity to meet people from the SVG community,
industry and the W3C SVG Working Group.

The SVG Open 2008 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 March 31, 2008. The abstracts are reviewed by a reviewing
committee and presenters will be informed about acceptance on or before
April 29, 2008. If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit
your full paper by August 1, 2008, according to instructions that will be
sent to you. Accepted abstracts, papers and presentations will be
published on the conference hand-outs and web proceedings. PaperAbstracts
can be submitted at http://www.svgopen.org/ until March 31.  Following is
a list of potential presentation topics:

* Mobile (handheld, in-car) Solutions

Course Instructors are asked to submit a course outline by March 31, 2008.
The outlines are reviewed by a reviewing committee and instructors will be
informed about acceptance on or before April 29, 2008. Accepted course
instructors will receive a free conference pass and may participate at the
come together event for free. 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
of August 29, 2008. 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

see many of you in Nuremberg!
