Conference-goers will be treated to two days packed with unique and thought-provoking seminars, panel discussions and presentations, as well as countless networking opportunities.

Over 30 educational sessions will cover six approximate themes -- with presentation topics ranging from color science to digital signatures. (Check out the full conference agenda.)

As an EDC Gold Sponsor, PDFTron will host two presentations.

The first, an educational session on Monday, will be led by PDFTron Head of Core Systems and Rendering, Aleksy Jones.

PDF vs Office: Is Reliable Office Rendering Possible? will address key Office document issues such as...

  • The design of proprietary Office formats and the challenges of rendering reflowable Office files as PDFs.
  • How to ensure seamless translation from Office formats.
  • How to build a fast, platform-independent Office solution without third-party software and software licenses, or open-source software dependencies.

Attendees will get a live demo of how PDFTron’s WebViewer secures Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) collaboration within a common data environment that puts all stakeholders on the same (electronic) page, helping to streamline operations, manage risks and reduce costs. The session includes a live showing of our AEC solution , embedded in leading-brand AEC applications, such as those of Autodesk, Nemetschek, Bentley, Trimble, Drawboard, Aconex, and Newforma.
