SMIL (Synchronised Multimedia Integration Language) is to web media what HTML is to web pages. It’s an XML language that lets you spatially and temporally compose media types like MPEG-4, MP3, PNG and SVG.
SMIL Europe 2003, the first European conference dedicated to SMIL, is being held in Paris on February 12-14.
