Upcoming Conference

About the Conferences

The Internationalization and Unicode Conferences are organized by Object Management Group (OMG), and are held annually in the San Francisco Bay Area. They are of great value to engineers implementing the Unicode Standard, and anyone working on the internationalization of software or engaged in furthering research into the representation of historic languages and symbols by computers. A variety of tutorials and conference sessions cover current topics related to recent advances in Unicode, the web, software, and internationalization. Participants can learn about new developments in the representation of human languages and in the implementation of Unicode-related standards.

Internationalization and Unicode Conferences are the ideal place to interact and exchange ideas with others in the field of internationalization and language support, including experts, implementers, educators, clients and vendors. The interactive format makes the Internationalization and Unicode Conferences a great place to meet leading experts, find out about the needs of the worldwide users of software, or find out what Unicode-enabled products are available.

For more information about the conferences and OMG, and to check opportunities for sponsorship or exhibiting, see the Internationalization and Unicode Conferences website.
