At this star-studded conference, users and developers will find answers to their questions and ideas for optimal usage of the PDF format. Each different PDF standard will be considered and its potential applications discussed. The agenda for the first day, Educational Day, will include developer- and product-independent presentations on PDF-related themes, such as PDF/A, PDF/UA, PDF/X, PDF/VT, PDF/E and PDF itself. Day two, Solution Day, is dedicated to practical applications for PDF solutions. Cutting-edge questions will be answered, such as “Where is PDF going?” “How can organizations best leverage PDF’s subset standards for archival, accessibility, engineering and print?” “How reliable is PDF?” and “What will PDF 2.0 look like?”
