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 opportunities created by the latest
advances, how to leverage them, and the potential pitfalls. Their impact on
business and 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.

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.
