The Graphical Web conference (formerly SVG Open) is coming up in September 2015 in Pennsylvania:
I've been asked by some folks who were at my 2009 SVG Open presentation to come & see what's new in the SVG ecosystem, and perhaps present an updated state of SVG-at-Wikimedia. In addition to our recent usage of SVG icons for HiDPI displays, there are several projects I've done experiments with on animation/interactivity and other advanced usage of the user-supplied SVGs rendered straight in the browser, and there's a lot of new activity in the ecosystem on animation which could make these more feasible than when I last experimented on them.
I'll prep a talk and submit it; assigning this to myself to track it. :)
