Workshops offered at the TUG'20 conference:
Noted designers Kris Holmes (of Bigelow&Holmes) and Lorrie Frear, RIT faculty member, have kindly agreed to lead a workshop on calligraphy. They will guide us in a quick tour through the letters, and (special to our conference) math and technical signs and numerals. (Some photos from one of Kris's workshops.)
The workshop will take place on Thursday, July 23, from 9am to (approximately) 1pm, at an RIT classroom (tbd). Refreshments at a break midway through will be provided, but lunch is not included.
There is a limit of 20 participants. Please reserve a spot by signing up on the conference registration form. There is a separate fee to help cover expenses.
All materials will be provided and no prior calligraphy experience is necessary.
On Friday, July 24, we will provide an introductory/intermediate LaTeX workshop, led by Sue DeMeritt and Cheryl Ponchin. The approximate syllabus in PDF (and LaTeX source) are available.
This one-day workshop will run concurrently with the first day of the main conference.
There is a limit of 15 participants. If you want to attend the workshop, please reserve your spot as soon as possible; just check the box on the conference registration form. For conference participants, the workshop fee is included. You can also register for the workshop separately from the main conference (using that same registration form), for a small fee.
The workshop will include time for individual one-on-one attention, so feel free to bring any specific questions or problems you might have.
Participants should bring their own laptops (and have TeX installed if at all possible). Otherwise, we hope people will be able to share.
An interactive workshop for users of TeXShop who want to get to know about some of the lesser-known but useful features of that front end to a TeX distribution on the Mac. Led by Herb Schulz. No pre-registration necessary.
