As every year we are organizing the SVG Open conference
(http://www.svgopen.org/2010/). This year it takes place from August 30
to September 1 in Paris. Inkscape was always present in the past couple
of years through presentations of Jon Cruz, one time also a keynote. His
contribution was always one of the highlights of the conference.
Inkscape is the most powerful SVG editor we have at hand. It would be
very nice if the Inkscape project would be represented at the
conference. I am sure there are plenty interesting aspects in Inkscape
that would be worth being presented at the conference.
If you live close by and have time and interest in presenting Inkscape,
both from a developer, but also from a designer/user point of view, you
are still welcome to submit a short abstract until June 9. The official
abstract submission deadline is over, but we are still accepting late
interesting submissions. If you are interested, please submit an
abstract at https://www.svgopen.org/2010/registration.shtml (you first
have to preregister) or ask me questions, if any.
I would hope that the Inkscape project could be present at the conference.
