How do you get product releases out to the world on time and on budget? Worldware explores the tools, concepts and materials to effectively plan, evangelize and deliver internationalization efforts within your company.

Topics will concentrate on internationalization, the natural and necessary prerequisite to cost-effective localization. The conference provides extensive information about the “why” and “what” that underlie the strategy and business case reasoning in the goal of delivering products to the international marketplace.

This conference is directed to:

technically inclined strategic decision-makers
-development directors in large enterprises
-software architects
-product and marketing managers
-globalization managers
-and others who are responsible for setting the strategic direction of product development.

The theme is not meant to restrict the content of the conference. We encourage presenters to submit proposals that are complementary to the general conference scope. Some suggested topics are:

-internationalization as a business case
-the ROI of internationalization
-internationalization product management
-planning internationalization projects
-building internationalization teams
-case studies

The Worldware Conference invites individuals, practitioners, and corporate and institutional users to submit papers, perspectives and topics for discussion at the Worldware Conference in 2010 in Santa Clara, California. By using the same overall theme as our Worldware Conference in March 2009, we aim to create ongoing discussions on the topic and to introduce those discussions to attendees.
