Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Interest Group

Note: This group for community involvement in the development and promotion of the SVG markup language is now closed. The SVG Working Group is still active, and is developing new features for SVG on its public mailing list. If you wish to contribute to or comment on SVG, you can send an email to the public list <www-svg@w3.org>. For more options to publicly participate in groups for the promotion and development of Web languages, see W3C's Community Groups.

SVG is a widely-deployed royalty-free graphics format developed and maintained by the W3C SVG Working Group.

The mission of the SVG Interest Group, part of the W3C Graphics Activity, is to help the SVG Working Group. Its aims are to foster widespread discussion and use of SVG as a format and a platform, to gather requirements for the SVG WG to consider for future additions to the language, and to enhance the adoption and usability of SVG in combination with other technologies through testing support, interoperability, and experimental features.

If you are interested in joining the SVG Interest Group, read the instructions and email the Team Contact for the SVG Interest Group!

The following link is broken and confusing for anyone who doesn't already have a W3C account, but some ridiculous script demands that it be present in the page, so I've hidden it with CSS and replaced it with the sensible link above. Join this group

There is also a Japanese chapter of the SVG Interest Group for those who wish to participate in this locale-specific group focused on local issues in their native language, culture, and timezone. If you are interested in creating a locale-specific chapter for your area, contact the Team Contact for the SVG Interest Group.
