Convergence: TeX, get out of the closet!
From 13th until 17th September Warsaw will hold ATyPI's (Association
Typographique Internationale) conference ATypI16
the title ôòüConvergenceôòý.
GUST and especially its e-foundry team, thanks to Andrzej
Tomaszewski, will participate actively (viz. https://vimeo.com/142911023,
the ATypI16 promotional video, paying extra attention from 1'10'').
This year's BachoTeX alludes to the ATypI16 theme (some BachoTeX
presentations will be later given there) though from a somewhat different
perspective. We want to discuss matters and projects which somehow
would realize the coming-out of TeX from its sort-of a niche. Since
about 5 years a great many tools and publication solutions were
made available with open source licenses. The up-to now standard of
Corel, Word and InDesign for creating publications is being dropped in
favour of solutions based on HTML, CSS, JS and SVG. A lively open
source life blossoms.
That situation seems to be overlooked by the TeX community. We are
acting a little bit as if on the ôòüother sideôòý only Windows, Word and
propriety licences and formats with which no inter-operation is
possible were prevailing. In reality the ôòüother sideôòý has evolved such
that there are many more possibilities for inter-operation than
whenever in the past.
Of course we look forward to the normal mix of TeX, MetaPost, ConTeXt,
LaTeX, and friends related presentations. Please not not forget fonts!
Please note the ôòüCall for TeX Pearlsôòý further down.
The normal channel of offering papers is emailing proposals to the
Program Committee, but before rushing off to the mailer, please
consult the info for authors
Workshops and tutorials
The following are in initial planning:
* making batik pennons (or streamers)
* calligraphy (practice adorning pennons with glyphs)
Wery welcome are your own proposals for TeX-related tutorials or
introductions. If you have suggestions for tutorials or workshops by
others than yourself or about specific topics, please let us know.
Participants will be given the opportunity to present their TeX and
typographic results in the form of posters for which we provide
We continue the tradition of the ôòüPearls of TeX Programmingôòý.
MetaFont/MetaPost do also fall into that category. Details and
previously collected pearls can be found at
