ConScript Unicode Registry

The ConScript Unicode Registry is a volunteer project to coordinate the assignment of code points in the Unicode Private Use Area for the encoding of artificial scripts including those for constructed languages.[1] It was founded by John Cowan and is maintained by him and Michael Everson but has not been updated in several years. It has no formal connection with the Unicode Consortium.

The Under-ConScript Unicode Registry (UCSUR) is a clone of the CSUR that is acting as a holding area for new scripts until they can be added to the dormant CSUR.[2]
