SVG on mobile - The next big thing

I just submitted a talk to JavaZone before the deadline April 16.

Scalable Vector Graphics is a mature standard that have been around for a long time, but have lived in the shadow of Flash and suffered lack of browser support. Today SVG has gaining rapidly support in browsers and authoring tools. Its fully integrated with, and part of the larger html5 umbrella. SVG has a huge potential for creators of interactive graphic content. One of the great advantages is the inherent scalability, that makes the graphics crisp on any screen size without conversion.
The talk draws on findings from Ruben Havres master thesis “The use of SVG as a dynamic graphic on mobile devices” at Bergen University College that I initiated.
