Invitation to Exhibit


 The Internet and the World Wide Web continue to change the shape of
 computing.  The goal of network computing and understandable text
 access across wide, diverse groups of people has brought great
 momentum to computing environments that build Unicode into their
 foundation.  Whether it's Internet commerce, network access to data,
 or highly portable applications, Unicode makes a solid foundation
 for the network, global enterprises, and software users everywhere.

 The Sixteenth International Unicode Conference will address topics
 ranging from Unicode use in the World Wide Web and in corporate
 and government Intranets and databases, to the latest developments
 with Unicode 3.0, Java, XML and Web protocols.  Conference attendees
 will include managers, software engineers, systems analysts, and
 product marketing personnel responsible for the development of
 software supporting Unicode as well as those involved in all aspects
 of the globalization of software and the Internet.


The Exhibition/Demonstration area will take place on Wednesday and 
Thursday, March 29 and 30, only.

Table top displays will be set up for your usage.  You may supply your own 
backdrops, portable booths or any materials that you deem necessary to
