Unicode Technology Workshop — Call for Submissions and Registration Open!

Save the Date! November 7-8, 2023. Bay Area (Hosted at Google)

About the Workshop

Join us in person for two days of community building around the Unicode technology that makes software work for billions of people. Expect two days of workshops, seminars, free-form discussions, and lightning talks centered around i18n libraries, locale data frameworks, globalization tooling, localization pipelines, input methods, and text rendering. Network with the developers and users to help shape the future of Unicode technology.

This is a new type of event for Unicode, with a focus on building more connections within the internationalization community. Expect to come away with deeper knowledge on how to solve tough problems in the i18n and l10n space and how to engineer products that work better for global users. GILT professionals, especially those who build or use Unicode technologies, are encouraged to attend and to host sessions. To encourage maximum collaboration amongst the attendees, this is an in-person-only event.
