I am writing this list to see if someone from the OpenStreetMap or 
OpenLayers community would be interesting in participating in the SVG 
Open conference this October at the Google campus in Mountain View, CA.

In the past, there have been many presentations on the topic of SVG in 
mapping and GIS, thanks in large part to Andreas Neumann, the founder of 
this conference series.  Andreas is a cartographer by trade, and helps 
lead a significant SVG GIS effort:

The Call for Participation (submitting abstracts) has been extended to 
the end of the month (May 31):
You can register and submit abstracts here:
I believe SVG Open would be a great forum for presentation and 
discussion of projects you are working on.  This is a great opportunity 
to give feedback into other SVG projects, and even into the SVG 
specification itself.

If there is a person in the OpenStreetMap/OpenLayers community who is 
particularly involved in the SVG aspects of the project, and who is 
interested in presenting, but who would have difficulty funding their 
travel, we may be able to help find a sponsor or funding donation for 
that presenter.

Please feel free to pass this along to interested parties who might not 
be on this list.  Given the short notice, we may be able to accept an 
abstract later than the normal deadline, since we are particularly 
interested in having OSM/OL represented at the conference.

Thanks for you time and attention,
