Electronic Document Conference: Call for Papers

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.

Have we passed ‘peak PDF’?

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.

Participating in the PDF Techniques Accessibility Summit

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.

Members supporting PDF features!

The typical adoption curve for PDF technologies until approximately 2007 tended to track with that of the original PDF developer. Since then the marketplace has shifted; it’s no longer clear that Adobe drivesPDF feature support worldwide. Accordingly, we are happy to report that adoption of PDF 2.0 continues apace, with new vendors announcing their support every month.

PDF Days Europe 2017 hits the target!

With more than 200 participants, this year’s PDF Days Europe was the largest to-date. Early feedback from attendees makes clear that it was also a great success.

PDF Days participants praised the leading PDF event for the cutting-edge presentations and excellent networking possibilities, and rated it as a highly effective and efficient means of researching their own needs and interests regarding this ISO-standardized electronic document technology.

ISO 32000-2 (PDF 2.0) and the internal PDF Association project known as “Next-Generation PDF” were particularly popular subjects, but not the only ones. Many sessions concentrated on utilizing current technology. Attendees learned about PDF/A services as a cloud solution, new PDF-based collaboration options, a centralized platform for uniform conversion to PDF and PDF/A, and novel uses for PDF/A-3. The creation of universally-accessible documents, including those conforming to PDF/UA, also drew many attendees.

In the near future the PDF Association will post presentations and videos from the event, so stay tuned!

The staff of the PDF Association would like to thank all participants for attending. We look forward to welcoming you to the PDF Days Europe in 2018!
