Web technologies are used more prominently in multimedia applications. HTML5 is the flagship of these technologies but other techologies such as the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) standard take a growing part. The SVG standard is about be released in its version 2, providing advanced graphical tools and more integration with HTML5, enabling richer multimedia applications. This talk will present the new features of the standard, as well as the research work being carried to further improve it. A particular focus will be put on the research work done in the areas of gradient technologies, such as Gradient Meshes and Diffusion Curves, and in the area of animations and streaming.
