PDF Days Europe 2014: Agenda


«PDF Days in Europe 2014» will start with the Educational Day – three tracks of presentations on a wide range of PDF topics, including introductory sessions for end-users and technical updates for developers and integrators.

The Solutions Day will focus on tried and proven ways to successfully put PDF to work: reports from customer projects, best practices for users and developers, tutorials on archiving, how to protect your published documents against unlicensed use, how to make your PDF files accessible, and more. Solutions Day attendees may elect to drop in on the co-located iText Summit.

While about two thirds of the presentations are offered in English, throughout the conference there will be at least one presentation in German at any time.

On the evening of the first conference day, a Mediterranean buffet will offer a nice opportunity for socialising and networking.

Those interested in soccer will have the opportunity to view the broadcast transmission of the FIFA World Cup Game «Germany—Portugal» in one of the conference rooms.

More information about the event can be found on the PDF Days Europe 2014 page!
