Call for Papers - TUG 2009

We'd like to especially invite presentations on practical use of LaTeX, ConTeXt, MetaPost, and the rest of the TeX family. However, this should not be taken as exclusionary: presentations on new TeX developments, typography, or any TeX-related topic are also most welcome.

We also very much invite proposals to lead workshops on the day before the conference.

Contact and dates

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 tug2009@tug.org by April 13, 2009. Please also use that address for any questions, suggestions, expressions of interest, etc.

Although April 13 has passed, we will consider late submissions for some time further, time permitting. Please write us.

Preprints or slides received by June 28 (preferred format is PDF with accompany sources), will be included in the conference program. The final proceedings will be prepared as a TUGboat issue, after the conference; deadline: August 15. Presentations with no corresponding formal papers are also welcome at the conference.

General topics

Here are some guidelines for content of presentations:

Technically, please prepare your presentation as a PDF file if possible, to minimize setup time. If live demonstrations or special software is needed, please tell us in advance.

Total presentation length should be around 40 minutes, including time for questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!
