The software industry continues its rapid growth and change. In this
year alone, Unicode 3.2 was released and several new proposals for the
Internet and the World Wide Web were promoted to standards. Web Services
is the latest buzz. Are the vendors of software that support these
technologies keeping up? How can you be sure that you are deploying
software components that work well together today and in the future?
This Conference is where you go to find out. Experts will describe the
latest changes to the Unicode standard and the other standards used for
e-business today. You will also learn about the best practices for

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>
