> BachoTeX 2015: Various faces of typography
> ==========================================
> Since several years we are trying not to forget what TeX/MetaFont and
> their variants and combinations are for. Remember why Prof. Knuth set
> out to create TeX? We will continue in this spirit also during the
> forthcoming BachoTeX conference. Here is Andrzej Tomaszewski's
> rationale:
> Texts formed into direct or abstract writings and pictures are
> inseparable elements of the visual presentation of thought. During the
> millennia of our civilization this method of peoples communication
> reached the ability to record precisely scientific, social and artistic
> statements. Typography is an art of organizing text and in a broader
> context - publications as a whole. Text structures receive different
> shapes: from a sequence of simple sentences through futuristic poetry,
> statisticians tables, mathematicians formulas linguists dictionaries
> and even programmers listings. Sequences of alphanumeric signs require
> proper treatment – for once as a material for data processing and
> second, as a communique created for human readers consumption.
> This is what we will be talking about during BachoTeX.
> Papers/presentations
> ====================
> Of course we look forward to the normal mix of TeX, MetaPost, ConTeXt,
> LaTeX, and friends related presentations. Please not not forget fonts!
> Please note the “Call for TeX Pearls” further down.
> The normal channel of offering papers is emailing proposals to the
> Program Committee, but before rushing off to the mailer, please
> consult the info for authors
> (http://www.gust.org.pl/bachotex/2015-en/submissions).
> Workshops and tutorials
> =======================
> Especially welcome are proposals for TeX-related tutorials or
> introductions. If you have suggestions for tutorials or workshops by
> others than yourself or about specific topics, please let us know.
> The following are in initial planning:
> * calligraphy
> * book binding
> Poster sessions
> ===============
> Participants will be given the opportunity to present their TeX and
> typographic results in the form of posters for which we provide
> exhibition space.
> TeX Pearls
> ==========
> We continue the tradition of the “Pearls of TeX Programming”.
> MetaFont/MetaPost do also fall into that category. Details and
> previously collected pearls can be found at
> http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/pearls/.
> Deadlines and addresses
> =======================
> The deadline for “regular” abstracts and other proposals is
> March 28th 2015. The deadline for final papers to appear in the
> conference materials is April 11th.
> Contributions should be send by email to the Program Committee:
> prog-2015 at gust dot org dot pl. The PC is chaired by Bogusław
> Jackowski (b underscore jackowski at gust dot org dot pl).
