Sixteenth International Unicode Conference
Unicode and the Web: the Global Connection
March 27 - 30, 2000
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
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 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>
