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 Nineteenth International Unicode Conference (IUC19) will address
topics ranging from Unicode use in the World Wide Web and in operating
systems and databases, to the latest developments with Unicode 3.1,
Java, Open Source, 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.

Presentations should be geared towards a technical audience. Suggested
topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Internationalization features of portable devices

The Unicode Consortium was founded as a non-profit organization in 1991.
It is 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. In addition to cooperating with ISO on the future development of
ISO/IEC 10646, the Consortium is responsible for providing character
properties and algorithms for use in implementations. Today the
membership base of the Unicode Consortium includes major computer
corporations, software producers, database vendors, research
institutions, international agencies and various user groups.
