The SVG Open provides a platform to present about recent developments regarding SVG tools and content. Suggested presentation topics are listed below, but you may add your own topic, as long as it is related to SVG.

Spacer Presenters are asked to submit an extended abstract in English with an approximate length of 400 to 800 words by April 18, 2008. The abstracts are reviewed by a reviewing committee and presenters will be informed about acceptance on or before May 23, 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.

Paper Format

The paper format is the article subset of DocBook 5.0. The DocBook documents will be translated to XHTML, using XSLT. There is the official DocBook 5 specification, a free downloadable DocBook book, a DocBook FAQ and a DocBook XSLT book available to help you get started. Many XML editors (such as OxygenXML) also provide ready to use docbook environments for validation and XSLT transformation. Most Linux distributions also provide DocBook environments.

You may download a sample paper and a sample SVG file demonstrating some of the docbook elements. You can use this paper as a starter to fill in your own content. Schemas for DocBook5 help to validate your paper content. The XSLT files for translation to XHTML are still under development and will be made available in the second half of July. We apologize for the inconvenience. You may use the standard XSLT environments delivered with your XML editor or docbook environment to get a first XHTML output, though. This will not look like the final output, but helps you to get a first impression of how it may look like in HTML. The final XSLT result will look similar to the proceedings of the SVG Open 2007.
