CANCELLED – Thomas Milo: The Future of Arabic Book Production
November 6, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Given the massive number of people who use Arabic script, the industry’s indifference regarding it becomes catastrophic, despite competent contributions. Thomas Milo’s talk demonstrates a new concept that can grow into a universal solution that preserves the characteristics of any specific script in the context of global computing and Unicode.
Thomas Milo is a linguist and member of a team that holds the Peter Karow award for exceptional innovations in the development of typography-related technology. Major series of publications are produced with DecoType, e.g., the Library of Arabic Literature by New York University Press, and Arabic text of Royal Brill Publishers.
