## LaTeX Workshop at Practical TeX 2006

For Practical TeX 2006, we are offering a dedicated hands-on workshop
before the conference. To allow sufficient time to cover a significant
portion of LaTeX, the workshop will be the four days preceding the
conference, from July 25 through July 28 (Tuesday-Friday),
from 9am-5pm each day (with breaks, of course). It will take place in
the Hill Center for Mathematical Sciences, Room 248.

Class space is limited. Please sign up on the registration
page (first come, first served). The teachers will be Cheryl
Ponchin and Sue DeMeritt (both from both TUG and the Center for
Communications Research).

If you are interested in particular LaTeX topics being covered,
please email us. If you're
interested, most likely others are too, and the teachers can then plan
accordingly.

Attendees may also bring specific problems and, time permitting, the
instructors will attempt to work with you on them, likely on the fourth day.

Computers will be provided (if necessary).
