>them for global users, as well as potential pitfalls to be aware of, and 
>problem areas that need further research. There will also be 
>demonstrations of best practices for designing applications that can 
>accommodate any language. Attendees benefit from the wide range of basic 
>to advanced topics and the opportunities for dialog and idea-exchange with 
>experts in the field. The conference features tutorials, lectures, and 
>panel discussions that provide coverage of standards, best practices, and 
>recent advances in the internationalization and usability of user 
>interfaces for software applications and the Internet.
