  EuroTeX'06 (in Hungary) and PracTeX'06 (in New Jersey) conferences.
  The deadline for both is April 1.
  If you are interested in presenting at either (or both!) conferences,
  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
  are all available.

- 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!

- The first issue of The PracTeX Journal for 2006 has been published at
  http://tug.org/pracjourn.  It is a special issue devoted to fonts:
  LaTeX basics, Latin Modern, a survey of free math fonts, font
  identification quizzes, and much more.

  The first publication for 2006 will be a special publication of the
  EuroTeX 2005 proceedings, to be produced in Germany and jointly
  distributed to the members of most of the European groups.  We expect
  it to be ready fairly soon.

- The International Journal for Digital Typography, a new online
  academic journal for dissemination of research results in the areas
  of electronic document design and presentation, has been created.
