ALDUS TO HOST INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE

 ALDUS TO HOST INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPERS CONFERENCE
 SEATTLE, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today


announced that it will host the 1992 Aldus International Developers Conference from April 13 through 16. The conference will be held at the Four Seasons Olympic Hotel in Seattle. Attendees can choose from more than 25 presentations and round-table discussions designed to help developers expand their products' connectivity with Aldus software and explore co-marketing opportunities with Aldus.
 "As with last year, the Aldus International Developers Conference is a great forum to bring third parties together from around the globe," said David Cloutier, director of Aldus third-party marketing. "Developers will receive information on new technologies such as Aldus Additions, and learn about revisions to existing technologies, such as TIFF (tag image file format) and OPI (open prepress interface). They will also get a chance to speak directly with Aldus engineers and executives, both to get in-depth information on the products, technologies and specifications that Aldus develops, and to learn about co-marketing opportunities."
 The keynote speaker will be Paul Brainerd, president of Aldus. Luncheon speakers include representatives from Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL).
