International symposium shows that all paths lead to PDF/A

This year’s event demonstrated once more the growing importance of PDF/A

International projects show that this format for long-term archiving is finding acceptance worldwide. As PDF/A becomes more established, the PDF/A Competence Center membership continues to increase. The association was pleased to welcome T-Systems at the symposium as its 100th member.

“For an increasing number of companies and public authorities, the introduction of PDF/A is no longer a question, ” stated Harald Grumser, CEO of the PDF/A Competence Center. “It is more a matter for the persons responsible to find the right ways and strategies. Here the user reports from various sectors were an excellent sourceof information for those attending the symposium.” We can highly recommend this conference and the accompanying exhibition to anyone interested in the PDF/A! This year’s conference will be international to emphasize the importance of PDF/A worldwide.

A symposium is a meeting for scientists at which they can present their work and findings and discuss them with each other. Scientific conferences, together with scientific journals, represent one of the most important means of communication in science.
