"The Meeting-Place of the Global PDF Industry"

    The PDF Association,

    The PDF Association is a global industry initiative for
    developers of PDF solutions; companies that work
    with PDF in document management systems (DMS) and
    electronic content management (ECM), interested individuals,
    and users who want to implement PDF technology in their organizations.

    Founded in 2006 the PDF Association promotes understanding,
    adoption and implementation of International Standards
    for PDF-based technology.

    The Portable Document Format (PDF) is ISO Standard since 2008:

    • Portable Document Format (PDF) on Wikipedia

    • PDF is since 2008 further developed by
      PDF Association in collaboration with ISO.
    • The PDF technology is thus not owned by Adobe Systems.
      Adobe is still an important participator in the development of PDF,
      but now as peer contributor and member of the PDF Association.

    PDF Association Mission Statement

    "Delivering a vendor-neutral platform for developing
    open specifications and standards for PDF technology".

    The activities of the PDF Association include
    education and promotion of ISO 32000
    (the international standard for PDF / Portable Document Format),
    as well as PDF/A, PDF/E, PDF/UA, PDF/VT and PDF/X.

    PDF Association works closely with ISO and AIIM
    on the development of future PDF standards.

    PDF Association facilitates networking and communication,
    and the sharing of expertise and experience with interested
    parties worldwide, and includes over 100 enterprises and
    numerous individual subject-matter experts from
    more than 20 countries.

    • Developers
      use the PDF Association to improve and extend their
      PDF software, to share knowledge and experience
      with PDF technology.

    The Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG)

    An open forum dedicated to advancing the practice of
    digital preservation and archiving.

    It brings together practitioners, industry experts and researchers
    to share experience in a vendor-neutral forum on how to put
    preservation and archiving into practice, including:

    • Guidelines, best practice, assessment/audit criteria and standards

    • Architectures, designs, workflows and deployments.

    • Software tools, systems and services.

    • Trends, directions and emerging products/solutions

    • Case studies, reviews and practical findings.

    • Comparisons and choices such as community or proprietary,
      onsite or hosted, customized or standardized solutions.

    As a forum, PASIG provides its participants three main benefits:

    • Connecting practitioners with each other to share
      information, designs, and best practices.

    • Connecting practitioners and vendors, to both inform
      market & product development, and help practitioners make
      the most of the best systems, components and expertise
      that technology and service companies can offer.

    • Advancing the state of understanding, knowledge and practice of
      digital preservation and archiving among stakeholders worldwide,
      regardless of size, industry, content or relative maturity.

    The community is above all focused on the practical
    aspects of digital preservation; while it discusses standards,
    it is not a standards-setting organization.
    Theory, research and policy discussions are also relevant,
    to the degree that they have a direct and tangible impact on
    current digital preservation practice.

    PASIG is a place to share practical experiences, successes,
    pain points, and, increasingly, a forum for fostering coordination and
    collaboration to enable the most effective use of our resources.

    To cross-pollinate global ideas and practice, PASIG events
    typically alternate between eastern and western hemispheres
    and are held roughly every 12 months at volunteer host institutions.
