Berlin. callas software, a leading provider of automated PDF quality assurance and archiving solutions, is a Gold Sponsor of the 19th ACM Symposium on Document Engineering. In this role, the company—which is also an active member of the PDF Association—will demonstrate its specialist know-how at the event, which will take place from September 23-26, 2019 at the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) in Berlin.

The ACM Symposium on Document Engineering is an international forum covering all aspects of document engineering and associated applications. For this reason, the PDF Association is organizing a half-day workshop on September 23, which Dietrich von Seggern, Managing Director at callas software, is helping plan. The workshop is titled “More than just digital paper—Hidden features of the PDF format” and will cover PDF tagging, embedded files, workflow functions and more. The goal is to help familiarize the audience with the most important features that have been added to the PDF format in recent years. Example applications will be used as part of practical demonstrations of how companies can achieve total digitization when exchanging PDF files—beyond just displaying each page in digital format.
