We'd like to especially invite presentations on practical use of LaTeX, ConTeXt, MetaPost, and the rest of the TeX family. Since 2010 is a notable anniversary, historically-minded talks are especially welcome. However, this should not be taken as exclusionary: presentations on new TeX developments, typography, or any TeX-related topic are also happily considered.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2010, and also mention your affiliation as you would like it listed in the program. The earlier the submission the better. Please also use that same email address for any questions, suggestions, expressions of interest, etc. It is likely that we will only be able to accept one presentation per author, given the extra interest in this year's conference, so give it your best shot.
Preprints or slides received by May 21 (preferred format: PDF with accompanying sources), will be included in the conference program. The final proceedings will be prepared as a TUGboat issue, after the conference; deadline: July 19. Presentations with no corresponding formal papers are also welcome at the conference.
Here are some guidelines for content of presentations:
Technically, please prepare your presentation as a PDF file if possible, to minimize setup time. If live demonstrations or special software is needed, please tell us in advance.
Total presentation length should be 30-40 minutes at most, including time for questions.
We look forward to hearing from you!
