TUG 2005, the 26th annual meeting of the TeX Users Group and
International Typesetting Conference, will be held in Wuhan, China, from
August 23-25, 2005.  The Chinese TeX User Group (CTUG,
http://www.rons.net.cn/ctug.html), founded in 1999, has committed to
handle the conference affairs.

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
tug2005 at tug.org by *April 1, 2005*.  Any TeX- or typesetting-related
topic is welcome.

Presenters are invited to submit written versions of their talks.
Preprints or slides received in advance will be included in the
conference program.  The proceedings will be printed in TUGboat (the TUG
journal, http://tug.org/TUGboat) after the conference.  Presentations
without corresponding formal papers are also welcome.

This is the first TUG conference to be held in China.  Wuhan is close to
the birthplace of Taoism and the Three Gorges Reservoir.  China is also
the birthplace of typography in ancient times, and is simply a very
interesting place to go.

The TeX community in China has been growing over the years.  China is
one of the few countries in the world which has heavily applied free
software (including TeX, GNU/Linux, and more) in industry.  The rich
human resources and the creative TeX hackers have become a part of the
engine driving the global TeX community.  TUG'05 is a good opportunity to
meet them!
