[UA-discuss] UA at IUC? [or: Call for Participation Announced! - 41st Internationalization & Unicode Conference, Santa Clara, CA - October 16-18, 2017]

Hello, colleagues:

I'm a big fan of, and regular participant in, the annual 
Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC), brought to us by the 
people who brought us Unicode. I imagine that people who are interested 
in Universal Acceptance are likely to be interested in this conference, 
and may well have important contributions they could make to it.

So, #1, I'd like to make everyone in UASG aware that the IUC has a call 
for participation. The deadline for proposals is Friday, 24. March, 
2017. Please consider proposing a talk if you have something that the 
IUC audience would benefit from.

And, #2, I don't recall there being a proper presentation of the UASG 
activity at the IUC conference. (Dave Crocker gave a 5-minute "lightning 
talk" about Universal Acceptance and the UASG, but that was barely 
enough time to say that it existed.)

I would like to see a proposal about the Universal Acceptance Initiative 
submitted to the conference this year. If someone is already working on 
this, I would like to talk to you off-list and see if it makes sense to 
work together. If there is no existing effort, I would like to start 
one. I welcome collaboration. I will see to it that a proposal gets 

Best regards,
        --Jim DeLaHunt
