IUC 12 - Call for Papers

From: Lisa Moore (lisam@us.ibm.com)
Date: Fri Sep 26 1997 - 17:25:47 EDT

Hello Unicoders,

We just finished one very successful conference, and now it is time to start
thinking about the next one: IUC 12 in Tokyo, April 8 and 9, 1998. Computing's
Unicode foundation is really growing, in large measure driven by Java and the
WWW. We will continue to look at these topics, as well as others on the
broader aspects of global software and those of relevance to Asia.

We hope you can join us in Tokyo.

Best regards,

Lisa Moore
Co-chair, IUC 12 Review Board

             Twelfth International Unicode/ISO 10646 Conference
                        Global Computing Showcase

          Software and the Internet: Creating a Unicode(R) Foundation

                            April 8-9, 1998

                            Tokyo, Japan


 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 new e-business, network access to data, or
 very portable applications, Unicode makes a solid foundation for
 the network, global enterprises, and software users everywhere.

 The Twelfth International Unicode Conference will address topics
 ranging from Unicode use in the Internet and World Wide Web, to the
 latest developments with Java. Particular emphasis will be on using
 Unicode in East Asia and the Pacific Rim. 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.

 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.

 For further information on the Unicode Standard, visit the Unicode Web
 site at <http://www.unicode.org> or e-mail <unicode-inc@unicode.org>.
