As we continue to navigate our way through COVID-19 protocols, we are starting to finally see some light at the end of the tunnel! With ever-increasing awareness, better understanding, more established community policies, as well as accelerating vaccination efforts, companies are starting to once again plan for 2021 face-to-face events. IUC 45 will be no different. We will continue to monitor the severity of the COVID crisis moving forward and shift to alternate planning if necessary. As for now, the goal is to see everyone face to face in Santa Clara, CA! Please join us October 13-15, 2021 to celebrate 30 years of the Unicode Conference.
