new challenges and opportunities in multilingual computing.
You are invited to contribute to the discussion.
All topics related to Unicode, software and Web internationalization,
and specific regional challenges are relevant, but emphasis will be
given to topics that fit this theme with a focus on actual practice.
The conference will also explore how to make internationalization and
localization more efficient even when extending support to languages
with complex processing and rendering behavior. There will be a track
devoted to localization standards, tools, methodologies and techniques.

COLLABORATION WITH TILP
The Institute of Localisation Professionals (TILP) will chair a track
during the conference, devoted to localization standards, tools,
methodologies and techniques. Improving efficiencies in localization is
key to enabling cost-effective, quick-to-market support of new language
versions of software.
Registration for the conference will grant access
to the TILP localization track. Speakers therefore will have
opportunities to reach a wider audience of localization and
internationalization management and professionals. We invite papers
that are appropriate for this expanded audience.
Conference attendees are generally involved in either the
development and deployment of Unicode software, or the
globalization of software and the Internet. They include
managers, software engineers, testers, systems analysts, program
managers, font designers, graphic designers, content developers,
web designers, web administrators, site coordinators, technical
writers, and product marketing personnel.
The Conference SHOWCASE area is for corporations and individuals
who wish to display and promote their products, technology and/or
services. Every effort will be made to provide maximum exposure,

THE UNICODE CONSORTIUM
The Unicode Consortium is a non-profit organization 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. 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.
