               Unicode and the Web: The Global Connection

The Unicode Standard has become the foundation for all modern text
processing.  It is used on large machines, tiny portable devices, and
for distributed processing across the Internet.  The standard brings
cost-reducing efficiency to international applications and enables the
exchange of text in an ever increasing list of natural languages.

New technologies and innovative Internet applications, as well as the
evolving Unicode Standard, bring new challenges along with their new
capabilities.  This technical conference will explore the opportunities
created by the latest advances and how to leverage them, as well as
potential pitfalls to be aware of, and problem areas that need further

Conference attendees will include managers, software engineers, systems
analysts, font designers, graphic designers, content developers,
technical writers, and product marketing personnel, involved in the
development, deployment or use of Unicode software or content, and the
globalization of software and the Internet.

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.

For further information on the Unicode Standard, visit the Unicode Web
site at http://www.unicode.org or e-mail <info@unicode.org>
