The Henry Luce Foundation has made a grant to the Unicode Consortium in
support of three meetings between Unicode specialists, experts, and user
communities in Mongolia and China. The meetings, which will take place
from 2015 to 2017, will discuss encoding issues relating to specific
scripts in the region, such as Mongolian Square and Soyombo. The goal of
the meetings is to move the scripts forward in the encoding process, so
scholars and the relevant user communities will eventually be able to
create, send, and search materials in these scripts electronically. The
project is headed by Dr. Deborah Anderson, Technical Director of the
Consortium, and Project Leader of the UC Berkeley Script Encoding
