Each conference covers a wide range of Unicode and internationalization
topics in a variety of contexts, while also exploring one or more topics in
greater depth. This conference program will have an emphasis on the
current problems and potential solutions for designing and deploying web
services in scenarios where users and services span the globe.


Soon several Eastern European countries will be added to the European Union. 
This will create new internationalization and localization requirements for
software and web applications. Examples include currency handling, fonts,
and character encodings, to name a few. IUC26 will identify these new
requirements and discuss effective ways to upgrade software to meet the
new challenges.
