This page provides information about the SVG Working Group face-to-face meeting that will be hosted by Mozilla in 2011.
Monday 28 February - Friday 4 March, 2011 (inc.).
The F2F will be held at the Grand Hotel in the Sky City complex in the centre of Auckland, New Zealand. We will be in the Club Lounge room. The hotel's main entrance is off Federal Street.
Due to booking constraints, for the afternoon session on Wednesday and the morning session on Thursday, we will be in the adjacent Grand Boardroom (which despite the name is not particularly grand and a little smaller than the Club Lounge).
Please answer the registration form.
See the Agenda page.
The hosted dinner will be held at 7:30pm at Soul Bar & Bistro on Wednesday night.
