Twenty-First International Unicode Conference
May 14-17, 2002
The Burlington Hotel, Dublin, Ireland
Invitation to Exhibit

The Conference

The Unicode Standard has become the foundation for all modern text processing. It is used on large machines, tiny portable devices, and for distributed processing across the Internet. The standard brings cost-reducing efficiency to international applications and enables the exchange of text in an ever increasing list of natural languages.

New technologies and innovative Internet applications, as well as the evolving Unicode Standard, bring new challenges along with their new capabilities. This technical conference will explore the opportunities created by the latest advances and how to leverage them, as well as potential pitfalls to be aware of, and problem areas that need further research.

Conference attendees will include managers, software engineers, systems analysts, font designers, graphic designers, content developers, technical writers, and product marketing personnel, involved in the development, deployment or use of Unicode software or content, and the globalization of software and the Internet.


The Exhibition/Demonstration area will take place on Thursday and Friday, May 16 and 17 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 enhance your display.

Space is limited, so make your reservation today.
