please see the information on their respective web sites:
In addition to the call for papers, online registration, flyers
(please post if you can), participants and speakers so far, and more

- A little bit (but not too much) later is the deadline for TUG 2006 in
Morocco: June 1 for proposals and *June 30 for full papers*. (The
organizers wish to have the proceedings available at the conference.)
The sooner the better!

EuroTeX 2005 proceedings, to be produced in Germany and jointly

academic journal for dissemination of research results in the areas
