18:00–20:30 Banquet


As a TeX user, you might have noticed that this city is filled with so many different characters. You might be wondering, how does the Japanese language function with so many kinds of symbols? How are they arranged and classified? How many glyphs does a Japanese computer system need? What are the rules of Japanese typesetting?

We have prepared a series of tutorials on a range of topics including the basics of the Japanese writing system. It consists of four invited presentations and one supplement:

This tutorial should also serve as an introduction for the excursion on 25th October.

We hope these sessions help you get an idea of the Japanese writing system, the norms and practices underlying it, and how it is different from other writing systems of the world, especially the alphabet.
