History of Unicode® Conferences and Workshops

The Internationalization and Unicode Conferences started as a series of workshops in San José and elsewhere, held at member company locations. As they became larger and were held more regularly, the workshops turned into conferences professionally organized under license from the Unicode Consortium. Since 2006, they have been organized by Object Management Group (OMG). For information about the latest conference, programs, and other details, see the Internationalization and Unicode Conferences website. See also the past conferences archive, which contains information about the programs and presenters for all prior conferences organized by OMG.
