an initiative of the Association for Digital Document Standards (ADDS) e.V., founded in September 2006.
The association is geared towards developers of PDF solutions; companies that work with PDF in document management systems (DMS) and electronic content management (ECM), interested individuals, and users who want to implement PDF technology in their organizations. The PDF Association now includes members from over 20 countries world-wide.
Beginning in 2006 with the PDF/A Competence Center, the PDF Association exists to provide software vendors with information and resources on the various International Standards for PDF to help them make the most of their investment in PDF technology.
As adopted by the Board in January, 2011, the Mission of the PDF Association is this:
To promote Open Standards-based electronic document implementations using PDF technology through education, expertise and shared experience for stakeholders worldwide.
PDF Day France will be the first French-speaking event of the PDF Association, organised by our member ORPALIS. It will take place in Toulouse which is the home ground of Airbus and we are very happy that Airbus will present a case study around its usage of PDF in their document management environment!
Prospective presenters at the Electronic Document Conference 2019 are invited to submit high-quality original proposals for 25-minute presentations on subjects of interest to developers and technical product managers concerned with electronic document implementations.
How do we gain insight into how users’ views of documents are shifting? Google Trends is an increasingly interesting source of high-level marketplace data. By aggregating Google’s search data over time, reporting a term’s popularity as compared with all other searches.
The PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit’s objective is to establish a broad-based understanding of how PDF files should be tagged for accessibilty. It’s an opportunity to focus on establishing a common set of examples of accessible PDF content, and identify best-practice when tagging difficult cases.
PDF’s ISO committees for PDF, PDF/A and PDF/UA, as well as other PDF technology committees will meet in Toronto in May, 2019. PDF Association members may attend these ISO meetings as a feature of the organization’s category “A” relationship with ISO.
In alliance with our own Electronic Document Conference the following week, the PDF Association is sponsoring CreativePro Week 2019 in Seattle! As the leading “how-to” conference for creative professionals, CreativePro Week is a great opportunity to get value from two great events in a single trip!
In 2019, the Electronic Document Conference is a two-day educational experience offering developers and product managers over 50 sessions covering a wide range of information on electronic document technologies.
