         Unicode 4.1 - Multilingual Challenges and Solutions for 2006

The Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC) is the premier 
technical conference for software and multilingual computing, and it is
your source for the latest information on advances in the globalization
of software and the Internet. The 28th IUC features a number of
presentation formats including tutorials, workshops, lectures, and 
panel discussions to support different learning styles
 
The release this year of version 4.1 brings us closer to 100,000 
characters in the Unicode Character Standard.  Leaders in Software 
and Web Internationalization will share their expertise and 
best practices in working with the expanding character set and 
identify 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.
 
The conference web site has more details and numerous example topics:

ATTENTION WEBSITE and SOFTWARE DEVELOPERS!
 
Share your ideas for best practices for designing applications that can
accommodate any language.  If you are using Unicode in software or on 
the Web, bring your experience, knowledge and any remaining questions 
to light!  We invite you to submit papers describing challenges you 
faced, lessons learned, and ideas for future implementation.  Our 
audience is very interested in how Unicode and internationalization 
are being applied in the real world.  Come and share your ideas with 
the peers and industry experts in attendance.

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.

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.
 
For further information on the Unicode Standard, visit the
Unicode Web site at http://www.unicode.org or e-mail info@unicode.org
