My hospital emailed me a medical records release form as a PDF. They told me to print it, fill it, sign it, scan it and return it to the medical records department, in that order. In 2018? To get the form via email (i.e., electronically), yet be asked to print it? Did the last 20 years just… not mean anything! So I thought I’d be clever. I’d fill it first, THEN print it. Or better yet, never print it, but sign it anyhow, and return it along with a note making the case for improving their workflow. The story continues…Slides and video recordings of PDF Days Europe 2018

Keynote Address by Bob Wulff, Senior Vice President of Adobe Systems
12th April 2013. Seattle, WA. The PDF Association expects a wide variety of developers to congregate in Seattle for the first-ever PDF Association Technical Conference in North America, scheduled for August 14-16 2013 and hosted by Adobe Systems at their campus on Lake Union.
For developers and technical product managers, a PDF Association Technical Conference offers an intensive two days of deep technical education in PDF technology. Adobe Systems Vice President of Engineering Bob Wulff, leader of the engineering teams that created Adobe Acrobat 1.0 through 9.0, will deliver the keynote address recalling the early days of Adobe Acrobat.
Participants at the PDF Associations Technical Conference will benefit from 21 highly interactive sessions in two tracks covering a wide range of issues. From PDF on mobile devices to 3D PDF, PDF creation, repurposing, XMP, PDF/A, PDF/UA (the new accessibility standard), and more.
Conference participants come to attend education sessions conducted by top industry experts, to be inspired about what they could do with PDF now and in the future, and to build their networks.
2013 marks 20 years since PDF was first released. In that time its become the worlds chosen electronic document format, said Duff Johnson, Vice Chairman of the PDF Association. Even so, many developers know very little about the power and flexibility of the format they use everyday, he said. For developers, the PDF Association Technical Conference is a great way to learn in a peer-to-peer environment; asking questions and bringing home lots of actionable ideas.
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.
