PDF is the most common file format on the Web after HTML, and everyone in the Document Engineering community without exception has to deal with the format in one way or another. Just about everyone is familiar with PDF being “digital paper,” after all, that is really how it started out. But PDF has become “smarter” in the last few years, yet it is still struggling to shake off its reputation as a purely end-of-line, dumb file format that is unsuitable for further machine processing. Comparatively few people -- and this includes even many DocEng participants who do not work directly with PDF -- are not familiar with PDF’s additional features, which have grown over the past few years.
The aim of this tutorial is to introduce the audience to the most important of these features and give practical examples on how they can benefit from generating and exchanging PDF files that go beyond digital representations of the printed page.
On September, 23rd, we will be presenting a a half-day tutorial and propose the following topics for the tutorial.
However, we also plan to ask the audience about what interests them the most and spend more time on those topics.
