globalization of software and the Internet. The conference continues to
provide a forum for identifying and discussing new issues in this field.

New technologies, innovative Internet applications, and the
evolving Unicode Standard bring new challenges along with their
new capabilities. This technical conference will explore the
opportunities created by the latest advances, how to leverage
them, and the potential pitfalls. Their impact on business and
the problem areas that need further research will also be
identified. Best practices for designing applications that can
accommodate any language will be demonstrated.

Attendees benefit from the wide range of basic to advanced topics

The Unicode Consortium is a non-profit organization dedicated to the
development, maintenance and promotion of The Unicode Standard, a worldwide
character encoding. The Unicode Standard encodes the characters of the
world's principal scripts and languages, and is code-for-code identical to
the international standard ISO/IEC 10646. The Consortium also defines
character properties and algorithms for use in implementations. The
membership base of the Unicode Consortium includes major computer
corporations, software producers, database vendors, research institutions,
international agencies and various user groups.
