The 25th Internationalization and Unicode Conference will focus on solutions
that address the language and multilingual requirements of governments and
industries around the world. The Washington DC venue was chosen to allow peer
networking and discussion on the needs of government, including topics such as
U.S. Homeland Security, and the European Union's challenges supporting all of
its official languages.

* Several completely new tutorials such as: Internationalization Project
  Planning, Internationalized Software Testing

* Track on Localization organized and sponsored by The Institute of
  Localisation Professionals (TILP)

* Enhanced Unicode tutorial (incorporating Unicode 4.0), and updates to
  the popular tutorials on Web internationalization, writing systems,
  distributed systems, and authentic Arabic

  Web internationalization, scripts, transliteration, rendering,
  and conversion
* Programming sessions: Java, .NET, IBM ICU, Oracle, and Testing

  services, tools and technologies
