2nd Annual Conference on Scalable Vector Graphics
If you have ideas, experience, products or strategies involving SVG, then this is your chance to tell the world! Come to share your valuable information with a diverse worldwide community of SVG developers, designers and users at this annual forum on all things Scalable, Vectorial and Graphical.
We invite all those interested in
to submit your proposals now.
Presenters are asked to submit an extended abstract (approx. 400 to 800 words) by March 21, 2003 in XHTML 1.1 format. The abstracts are reviewed by a reviewing commitee and presenters informed about acceptance on or before April 11, 2003.
If your abstract is accepted, then you will be asked to submit your full paper and your presentation slides according to instructions that will be sent to you. Accepted abstracts, papers and presentations will be published on the conference CD and Web proceedings.
We have arranged in advance for the best two papers of the conference to be published in Computer Graphics Forum, the international journal of the Eurographics Association. Congratulations to last year's winners:
Herman, Ivan and Daniel Dardailler. "SVG Linearization and Accessibility", Computer Graphics Forum, Volume 21, Number 4, December 2002, p. 777-786, Blackwell Publisher, Oxford.
Cecconi, Alesandro and Martin Galanda. "Adaptive Zooming in Web Cartography", Computer Graphics Forum, Volume 21, Number 4, December 2002, p. 787-799, Blackwell Publisher, Oxford.
Based on the review of submitted abstracts, a number of people will be chosen to receive scholarships to assist them in attending the conference:
The BC Advanced Systems Institute has generously offered up to thirty scholarships for qualified students who submit papers to the conference, either for presentation or poster sessions. These scholarships will provide each recipient with a free gold pass. To be eligible for this, you must clearly specify your student status and your educational institution in the appropriate fields when entering your user data on our online system. For example,

In addition, one presenter will be awarded a scholarship to cover their travel and hotel expenses, courtesy of the Institute of Cartography, ETH Zurich.
Presentations can take three standard formats:
The following is a list of suggested topics for your papers. This is just to get you thinking - you are welcome to come up with your own topic area not on the list.
When submitting an extended abstract, please
Instructors are asked to submit a course outline by March 21, 2003. The outlines are reviewed by a reviewing commitee and instructors informed about acceptance on or before April 11, 2003.
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 a half-day in length, scheduled in four time slots: July 13 AM, July 13 PM, July 14 AM, July 14 PM. If you feel your course requires a full day, then it will be treated as part I and part II half-day courses. 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.
