As usual, we'd like to especially invite presentations on practical use of LaTeX, ConTeXt, MetaPost, and the rest of the TeX family, including in the world of commercial ventures. However, this should not be taken as exclusionary: presentations on new TeX developments, typography, or any TeX-related topic are also happily considered.
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—but no footnotes, please) to email@example.com and also mention your affiliation as you would like it listed in the program. The earlier the submission, the better. Please also use that same email address for any questions, suggestions, expressions of interest, etc.
Preprints or slides received by September 1 (preferred format: PDF with accompanying sources), will be included in the conference program. The final proceedings will be prepared as a TUGboat issue, after the conference; deadline: October 31.
Presentations without accompanying formal papers are also welcome at the conference. On the other hand, if you can't attend the conference to present your paper, please submit it as a regular TUGboat article.
Here are some general 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. Internet access will be available.
Total presentation length should be 35-45 minutes, including time for questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
