The Unicode Standard:
The Unicode Standard is a 16-bit character encoding that is code-for-code
identical to International Standard ISO/IEC 10646. Encompassing the world's
principal scripts, it 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 Conference will have a separate area for corporations or individuals who
wish to display and promote their products and/or services.
This area will be open throughout the duration of the Conference. Every
effort will be made to provide maximum exposure and advertising.
Exhibit space is limited. For further information or to reserve a place,
please contact Barbara at the above location.
We look forward to your proposal(s) and anticipate a very successful
Conference in September.
