The PDF Technical Conference 2015 will be held in San José on the 19th and 20th of October, 2015. With over 40 presentations and podium discussions, conference attendees will benefit from intensive technical education on a wide range of high-profile subjects, including mobile and cloud applications. In addition, they will have the opportunity to discuss a range of complex questions with PDF experts and ISO committee members. The conference therefore offers an excellent platform for developers and technical product managers to gain a thorough, in-depth understanding of the PDF format, its capabilities and ISO-standardized subsets such as PDF/A, PDF/UA, PDF/E, PDF/X and PDF/VT. The event is hosted by the PDF Association, the non-profit international industry trade association promoting open standards-based PDF applications for digital documents.
Duff Johnson, Executive Director of the PDF Association, said: PDF is undoubtedly the worlds most popular final format for documents and document exchange. Our Technical Conference is an outstanding opportunity for developers to gain a more detailed understanding of PDF technology and ISO standards for PDF.
The conference will consist of three parallel tracks, allowing participants to assemble a personalized agenda to suit their existing knowledge and areas of personal interest.
The first day covers the core data structures and features of the PDF format. The PDF Foundations track will include an introduction to several PDF subset standards and subjects such as metadata and color management. The PDF Technology track will present new findings from PDFs use in practice. Among other things, this will include the use of fonts and encoding in PDFs, the use of RESTful APIs to process PDF forms, and programming PDF files using web technologies and command lines. The PDFs Future track, meanwhile, will cover subjects such as validation, tagging page content and PDF on mobile platforms. Developers will learn why they should care about definitive PDF/A validation, how to tag page content, and what considerations to take into account when using PDF forms on mobile platforms.
The second day also includes three tracks: PDF Best Practice, PDF Solutions and PDFs Future. The first track will offer examples of how businesses can further optimize their usage of PDF. The agenda includes subjects such as repairing and compressing PDF files, quality control in PDF generation and validation, and the integration of web services and command lines. The PDF Solutions track looks at specific application scenarios, with experts discussing the ZUGFeRD data model for e-invoicing, converting PDF to HTML, the implementation of PDF/A-3 solutions, repairing and optimizing PDF files, automating the creation of PDF/UA documents, and much more besides. Finally, the PDFs Future track will show participants how PDF interacts with the Open Web Platform, how to integrate PDF documents into HTML5 websites across devices, and new opportunities for optimizing document-based processes and using PDFs on mobile platforms.
As well as these presentations, both days will include podium discussions on the subjects, PDF as a Platform the Challenge and the Prize, Whos afraid of the XML Forms Architecture (XFA)?, and PDF 2.0 and the Future of PDF. In addition, participants will have a wide range of opportunities to meet with the experts and ask their own questions.
Attendance at the conference costs $95 for PDF Association members and $195 for non-members. For further information, and information on how to register, visit https://www.pdfa.org/event/pdf-technical-conference-2015/
