After last year’s record number of attendees, PDF Days is again being held in Berlin. We couldn’t be more excited and will be attending both the two-day event as well as the post conference events.
If you’re not familiar with PDF days, here’s what you need to know:
What is PDF Days 2017?
PDF Days 2017 is a two-day event held in Berlin which focuses on showing how PDF technology can help solve business-related problems. The event includes German- and English-language presentations, user reports and workshops. One subject in the limelight will be the new ISO 32000-2 standard (PDF 2.0) and the improvements it brings in terms of encryption, digital signatures and much more. Visitors will also receive up-to-date information about the PDF Association’s new initiative for optimizing use of the PDF format on mobile devices – something that will decisively impact the future of PDF.
The presentations will also introduce other new PDF-related subjects, including PDF/Raster, a consciously simplified subset of PDF which enables the use of the PDF format within high-volume scanning solutions. Other standards discussed at the event will include PDF/A for long-term document archiving, ZUG+FeRD for PDF/A-based invoices, and PDF/UA for universally accessible documents.
The event also features a post-conference workshop day for users, featuring specialist events from Association members. Participants can again expect a comprehensive range of information on this day.
