Why go to China for TUG 2005?

For fun!

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.

For keeping up with the community!

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 2005 is a good opportunity to meet them.

For your future!

The growing market is ready to use your expertise. Many libraries, publishing houses, and scientific organizations in China are eager to use your TeX expertise.
