Are you falling behind?  Version 4.0 of the Unicode Standard is here!
Software and Web applications can now support more languages with greater
efficiency and lower cost.  Do you need to find out how? Do you need to
be more competitive around the globe?  Is your software upward-compatible
with version 4.0?  Does your staff need internationalization training?

Learn about software and Web internationalization and the new Unicode
Standard, including its latest features and requirements.  This is the
only event endorsed by the Unicode Consortium.  The conference will be
held September 3-5, 2003 in Atlanta, Georgia and is completely updated.

KEYNOTES: Keynote speakers for IUC24 are well-known authors in the
Internationalization and Localization industries:

Donald De Palma, President, Common Sense Advisory, Inc., and author of
"Business Without Borders: A Strategic Guide to Global Marketing", and
Richard Gillam, author of "Unicode Demystified: A Practical Programmer's
Guide to the Encoding Standard" and a former columnist for "C++ Report".

TUTORIALS:  This redeveloped and enhanced Unicode 4.0 Tutorial is taught
by Dr. Asmus Freytag, one of the major contributors to the standard, and
extensively experienced in implementing real-world Unicode applications.
Structured into 3 independent modules, you can attend just the overview,
or only the most advanced material.  Tutorials in Web Internationalization,

non-Latin scripts, and more, are offered in parallel and taught by
recognized industry experts.

CONFERENCE TRACKS:  Gain the competitive edge! Conference sessions provide
the most up-to-date technical information on standards, best practices, and

recent advances in the globalization of software and the Internet.  Panel
discussions and the friendly atmosphere allow you to exchange ideas and ask

questions of key players in the internationalization industry.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?:  If you have a limited training budget, this is the one

Internationalization conference you need.  Send staff that are involved in
either Unicode-enabling software, or internationalization of software and
the
Internet, including: managers, software engineers, systems analysts, font
designers, graphic designers, content developers, Web designers, Web
administrators, technical writers, and product marketing personnel.

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 <info@unicode.org>
