We'd like to invite presentations on the use of LaTeX, plain TeX, ConTeXt, MetaPost, and the rest of the TeX family. Presentations on new TeX developments, publishing, or any topic related to the TeX world are happily received.
Other conference pages:
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—but no footnotes, please) to email@example.com by June 15, 2022, and also specify your affiliation as you would like it listed in the program. Early submissions are greatly appreciated. Please also write us at that same email address for any questions, suggestions, expressions of interest, etc. And don't forget to register for the conference.
Submissions after the deadline will be considered, indeed gratefully received, as long as space is available. But to ease our planning, please at least contact us by the deadline.
We try to reply to all proposals within a day or two of receipt. If it has gone longer, please do resend, perhaps from a different email address. (And check your spam filters, as always.)
Preprints received by July 10 (preferred format: PDF with corresponding sources), will be posted on the conference web site.
The final proceedings will be prepared as a TUGboat issue, after the conference; submission deadline: July 31, 2022. A template for TUGboat papers is available, along with other information for authors.
Plan for a total presentation time around 30-40 minutes, including time for questions. If you know you will need either more or less time, please let us know, as this is crucial information for scheduling.
Presentations without accompanying formal papers are also welcome at the conference. On the other hand, if you can't join the conference to present your paper, please submit it as a regular TUGboat article.
This is an online conference. A guide for speakers on creating an online presentation is available. Some basic considerations: sharing and displaying slides for the presentation, having a good video frame and good audio, and headphones and/or a good microphone to avoid feedback.
Please do not use proprietary music or other material. Then the video requires extra editing (to remove the non-copyable material), if it can be posted at all.
Here are some general guidelines for content of presentations:
We can further recommend perusing Jean-Luc Doumont's pamphlet on papers and presentations, Traditions, templates, and group leaders: Barriers to effective communication.
We look forward to hearing from you!
