In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web (WebAt25), the conference is working with our longtime supporter, the W3C, to especially encourage contributions that might be appropriate to that milestone! Consistent with this year’s theme of “Visual Storytelling” we have created a category for presentations which use open graphical standards and technologies and which present graphical perspectives on the history, impact and/or future of the World Wide Web.
The due date for submissions of abstracts for papers, presentations, panels and workshops/courses has, accordingly, been adjusted to accommodate this new category of submission (to be honest, we were contemplating this anyway!).
We have recruited an impressive group of speakers already, including Cameron Beccario, Jason Davies, and Scott Murray with more soon to be announced. This year, our sponsors include Google Inc. and Adobe Systems Inc. though it is not too late for your company to join in supporting this all-volunteer, non-profit, peer-reviewed conference!
SVG became especially important as it is included seamlessly in modern Web browsers.
As our theme this year is Visual Storytelling the organizers are especially encouraging submissions around this theme and all aspects of interactive data visualization. They are also interested in technical presentations about the implementations and usage of open web graphic technologies, such as SVG, Canvas, WebGL, CSS and HTML5 audio/video. Case studies are welcome as long as the primary focus is not about the marketing of a specific product or service.
