                           April 24-27, 2001

                               Hong Kong

  The Internet and the World Wide Web continue to change the shape of
  computing. The goal of network computing and understandable text
  access across wide, diverse groups of people has brought great
  momentum to computing environments that build Unicode into their
  foundation. Whether it's Internet commerce, network access to data,
  or highly portable applications, Unicode makes a solid foundation
  for the network, global enterprises, and software users everywhere.

  The Eighteenth International Unicode Conference (IUC18) will address
  topics ranging from Unicode use in the World Wide Web and in
  operating systems and databases, to the latest developments with
  Unicode 3.0, Java, Open Source, XML and Web protocols. Conference
  attendees will include managers, software engineers, systems
  analysts, and product marketing personnel responsible for the
  development of software supporting Unicode, as well as those
  involved in all aspects of the globalization of software and the

  In planning IUC18, we have worked closely with the organisers of the
  Tenth International World Wide Web Conference (WWW10), to schedule
  the two events in consecutive weeks, enabling participants to attend
  both conferences, with a weekend in between to enjoy Hong Kong. To
  find out more about WWW10, follow the link on the IUC18 Web site.

  The Unicode Standard is a 16-bit character encoding encompassing the
  world's principal scripts which provides the foundation for the
  internationalization and localization of software. With its simple
  and efficient approach to special and modified characters, the Unicode
  Standard defines a new degree of data portability between platforms
  and across borders. Software (especially modern, distributed systems)
  can be adapted for particular countries far more easily than when
  existing character sets are used. The Unicode Standard is code-for-
  code identical to the International Standard ISO/IEC 10646.

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