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.
