WEB INTERNATIONALIZATION & MULTILINGUISM SYMPOSIUM
20-22 NOVEMBER 1996
The Web Internationalization & Multilinguism Symposium (WInter
Symposium) will take place in Sevilla (Spain) between the 20 and the
22 November 1996.
The objective of the Symposium is the advancement of the
Internationalization & Multilinguism of the Web. The more concrete
goal is to seek agreement on the relevant standards. The rationale is
to gather all the interested parties, in particular:
* Users, particularly large users with advanced multilingual needs.
* Vendors of Web products (e.g., browsers, servers, ...).
* Vendors of linguistic products (e.g., translator workbenches).
* Standards promoters (e.g, W3C).
* Social and political stakeholders (e.g., European Commission)
Rapporteurs will present for each theme of the program the different
options, implications, level of consensus, etc. Rapporteurs do not
represent their position, they gather all the positions, including
theirs. Participants new to the Internationalization & Multilinguism
on Web would have the opportunity to get up to speed in a short time.
For the W3C members, the Symposium has the status of a W3C workshop.
