The Unicode Standard has become the foundation for all modern text
processing.  It is used on large machines, tiny portable devices, and
for distributed processing across the Internet.  The standard brings
cost-reducing efficiency to international applications and enables the
exchange of text in an ever increasing list of natural languages.

New technologies and innovative Internet applications, as well as the
evolving Unicode Standard, bring new challenges along with their new
capabilities.  This technical conference will explore the opportunities
created by the latest advances and how to leverage them, as well as
potential pitfalls to be aware of, and problem areas that need further
research.

We invite you to submit papers which either define the software of
tomorrow, demonstrate best practice with today's software, or articulate
problems that must be solved before further advances can occur.  Papers
should discuss subjects in the context of Unicode, internationalization
or localization. You can view the programs of previous conferences at:
http://www.unicode.org/unicode/conference/about-conf.html

Conference attendees are generally involved in either the development,
deployment or use of Unicode software or content, or the globalization
of software and the Internet.  They include managers, software
engineers, systems analysts, font designers, graphic designers, content
developers, technical writers, and product marketing personnel.

THEME & TOPICS

Computing with Unicode is the overall theme of the Conference.
Presentations should be geared towards a technical audience.  Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to, the following (within the
context of Unicode, internationalization or localization):

- UTFs: Not enough or too many?
- Security concerns e.g. Avoiding the spoofing of UTF-8 data
- Impact of new encoding standards
- Implementing Unicode: Practical and political hurdles
- Portable devices
- Implementing new features of recent versions of Unicode
- Algorithms (e.g. normalization, collation, bidirectional)
- Programming languages and libraries (Java, Perl, et al)
- The World Wide Web (WWW)
- Search engines
- Library and archival concerns
- Operating systems
- Databases
- Large scale networks
- Government applications
- Evaluations (case studies, usability studies)

- Migrating legacy applications
- Cross platform issues
- Printing and imaging
- Optimizing performance of systems and applications
- Testing applications
- XML and Web protocols
- Business models for software development (e.g. Open source)

SESSIONS

All sessions except the Workshops/Tutorials will be of 40 minute
duration.  In some cases, two consecutive 40 minute program slots may be

The Workshops/Tutorials will each last approximately three hours.  They
should be designed to stimulate discussion and participation, using
slides and demonstrations.

THE UNICODE CONSORTIUM

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 <[log in to unmask]>
