For the 2020 TUG meeting at RIT, given the conference's connection with the remarkable Cary Graphic Arts Collection, presentations related to fonts, type design, typography, historical or contemporary, are particularly welcome, whether or not they are related to TeX.
We'd also 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 firstname.lastname@example.org by April 10, 2020, 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.
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.
Preprints received by July 1 (preferred format: PDF with corresponding sources), will be included in the conference program.
The final proceedings will be prepared as a TUGboat issue, after the conference; submission deadline: August 3, 2020. A template for TUGboat papers is available, along with other information for authors.
Please send us slides for your presentation at any time (preferred format: PDF, no need for sources), and we will post them on the conference web site for attendees to peruse.
Plan for a total presentation time around 30-35 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 attend the conference to present your paper, please submit it as a regular TUGboat article.
Here are some general guidelines for content of presentations:
Technically, please prepare your presentation as a PDF file if at all possible, to minimize setup time. If live demonstrations or special software is needed, please tell us in advance. Internet access will be available.
We can 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!
