The W3C SVG Working Group, part of the Interaction Domain, is chartered as a public group to continue development on a vector graphics format, and associated details such as APIs and multimedia. The language is meant to bring rich, interactive, and interoperable graphics to the Web and the desktop. W3C Members are invited to join the SVG WG.
We also have an associated SVG Interest Group to help build and directly involve the community (see the charter for details), including a Japanese SVG Task Force. The general public is invited to join the SVG Interest Group.
Feedback to this group may be sent to the public mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org (public archive), or submitted to the public issue tracking system available from the feedback page. This group will post minutes to, and primarily conduct its technical work on, the mailing list email@example.com (public archive).
We appreciate feedback on our work through the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list (archived) and the "less official" #svg channel on the Freenode IRC server.
We hold regular telcons (teleconferences enhanced by IRC chat), and F2F (face-to-face) meetings and we publish the minutes publicly. See meetings page for times and dates.
For a current list of Members organizations of the SVG WG, see the Public database.
