The DocEng 2019, Berlin - September 23-26, 2019 - Banner

DocEng 2019
September 23 -- 26, 2019, Berlin


    PDF Association 1/2-Day Tutorial, September 23:
    "More than just digital paper - Hidden features of the PDF format"

    PDF is the most common file format on the Web after HTML,
    and everyone in the Document Engineering community without exception
    has to deal with the format in one way or another.

    Just about everyone is familiar with PDF being “digital paper",
    after all, that is really how it started out.
    But PDF has become “smarter” in the last few years,
    yet it is still struggling to shake off its reputation as a purely end-of-line,
    dumb file format that is unsuitable for further machine processing.

    Comparatively few people, and this includes even many
    DocEng participants who do not work directly with PDF,
    are not familiar with PDF’s additional features,
    which have grown over the past few years.

    PDF Association will be presenting a half-day tutorial titled
    "More than just digital paper - Hidden features of the PDF format".
    The aim of this tutorial is to introduce the audience to the most
    important of these features and give practical examples on how they
    can benefit from generating and exchanging PDF files that go
    beyond digital representations of the printed page.
