2) REGIONAL TEX CONFERENCE AND CLASS?
We'd like to solicit interest about a regional TeX conference and/or
LaTeX class in the USA.
One possibility is to schedule in conjunction with a mathematics
meeting, such as the following:
Phoenix, Arizona, Joint Mathematics Meeting (January 4-7, 2004)
Providence, Rhode Island, MathFest (August 12-14, 2004)
Another possibility is just to hold a regional TeX conference, not
associated with a mathematics meeting. Here's one potential location:
Princeton University, New Jersey (flexible)
(to be organized by Gerree Pecht, new TUG board member)
If you are interested in attending a TeX conference or class at any of
the above, please reply. If you are interested in actually hosting a
regional TeX event, please reply even more :).
Also, please do suggest other dates and/or areas of the country if they
would be more suitable. (The whole goal here is to collect information
about what would be the most useful ....) We will compile your
responses and report the results.
3) *NEW* TUG STORE -- OPEN! We've created a small electronic store for
TUG at: http://www.tug.org/store/
