Twelfth International Unicode/ISO 10646 Conference
Global Computing Showcase
Asia, Software + the Internet: Going Global with Unicode (R)
April 8-9, 1998
The Twelfth International Unicode Conference
is an official pre-conference event of the
7th International World Wide Web Conference
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
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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
