The next UTC (Unicode Technical Committee) meeting, the 147th one, takes place during the week of May 9th, and will be hosted at the Adobe headquarters in San José, California. All members of the Unicode Consortium, especially voting members, are encouraged to attend.
As the Adobe host of UTC #147, I will need to arrange some of the logistics, and generally be available to assist attendees with their needs, such as printing documents. In addition, there are several documents that I have in the pipeline that will either need to be discussed or at least brought to the UTC’s attention during UTC #147:
- PRI #318 is a proposed update for UAX #11 (East Asian Width) that is based on L2/16-027 (note that I am the editor of this Unicode Standard Annex)
- L2/16-055 is the UTC’s review of IRG Working Set 2015 Version 1.1 (aka IRG N2133), which is what will eventually become Extension G
- L2/16-063 is my document about the “PanCJK” IVD collection
- L2/16-065 is a revised and reduced version of L2/15-328 that proposes to encode two Western-style tally marks
It is also the UTC meeting that takes place before Unicode Version 9.0, whose beta is underway as PRI #323, is released.
