TUG 2005, the 26th annual meeting of the TeX Users Group and International Typesetting Conference, will be held in Wuhan, China, from August 23-25, 2005. The Chinese TeX User Group (CTUG, http://www.rons.net.cn/ctug.html), founded in 1999, has committed to handle the conference affairs.
If you'd like to make a presentation at the conference, please submit a title and abstract via email (plain ASCII is fine, or any TeX format) to firstname.lastname@example.org by *April 1, 2005*. Any TeX- or typesetting-related topic is welcome.
Presenters are invited to submit written versions of their talks. Preprints or slides received in advance will be included in the conference program. The proceedings will be printed in TUGboat (the TUG journal, http://tug.org/TUGboat) after the conference. Presentations without corresponding formal papers are also welcome.
This is the first TUG conference to be held in China. Wuhan is close to the birthplace of Taoism and the Three Gorges Reservoir. China is also the birthplace of typography in ancient times, and is simply a very interesting place to go.
The TeX community in China has been growing over the years. China is one of the few countries in the world which has heavily applied free software (including TeX, GNU/Linux, and more) in industry. The rich human resources and the creative TeX hackers have become a part of the engine driving the global TeX community. TUG'05 is a good opportunity to meet them!
More information is available on the conference web site, http://tug.org/tug2005. Hope to see you there!
