UA Colleagues:

I'm about to try for the prize of "most late conference report back 
ever". Last October, I taught a tutorial on Universal Acceptance, at the 
41st Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC41) in Santa Clara, 
California. For some reason I didn't get around to posting a link to my 
slides here. Then, the Call for Participation for IUC42 gave me a nudge, 
and here I am.

The tutorial was, "Email addresses and domain names are NON-latin! Now 
what?" The target audience was people who were involved in internet 
domain-related business, who were familiar with domain names and email 
addresses as ASCII-only, but who weren't familiar with Universal 
Acceptance, or Internationalized Domain Names, or Email Address 
Internationalization. It had the goal of giving them enough knowledge to 
be able to understand the presentations in the regular part of the 
conference which followed. As a tutorial, I had 2-3 hours of content, 
instead of the usual 30-50 minute time budget of a presentation.

Description of the content: 
(as blog post)

Direct link to the slides: <http://go.jdlh.com/iuc41t4t1> (PDF, 8.3MB).

Comments welcome, either direct to me or on this list or on the blog post.

Overall, I think the tutorial went well. The evaluation scores were 
positive. I think the content is very relevant to the 
Internationalization and Unicode Conference audience. It could also be 
adapted for other audiences.

I am proposing this same tutorial for this year's conference, IUC42.

Best regards,
