With the Internet comes change: businesses world-wide expect accurate access to text, independent of location or language. Users demand software that runs everywhere. To meet these needs requires global computing. The Tenth International Unicode Conference will address all issues and topics relating to global computing with Unicode.
Conference attendees will include managers, software engineers, systems analysts, and product marketing personnel responsible for the development of software supporting Unicode/ISO 10646 as well as those involved in all aspects of the globalization of software and the Internet.
All proposals for papers will be reviewed for inclusion in the Conference Program and book of Conference Proceedings.
Global computing with Unicode is the overall theme of the Conference. Presentations should be geared towards a technical audience. Suggested topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The Unicode Standard
The Unicode Standard is a 16-bit character encoding encompassing the world's principal scripts which provides the foundation for the internationalization and localization of software. With its simple and efficient approach to special and modified characters, the Unicode Standard defines a new degree of data portability between platforms and across borders. Software (especially modern, distributed systems) can be adapted for particular countries far more easily than when existing character sets are used. The Unicode Standard is code-for-code identical to the International Standard ISO/IEC 10646.
