    Technologies built on the Unicode Character Standard make it
    feasible today to build a multilingual infrastructure that
    satisfies these requirements. This conference will examine the
    requirements and explore recent advances as well as traditional

    The Internationalization & Unicode Conference is the premier
    technical conference worldwide for both software and Web
    internationalization. The conference features tutorials,
    lectures, and panel discussions that provide coverage of
    standards, best practices, and recent advances in the
    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

    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
    and the opportunities for dialog and idea exchange with experts
    and peers.

    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.
