Dear Friends,

please pass on the BachoTeX 2023 announcement to your members.

With best wishes,
-- Jerzy Ludwichowski

Dear TeX users and friends,

good news - come what may, there will be BachoTeX 2023 as indeed I 
promised when
announcing BachoTeX 2022 cancellation.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus did not disappear but seems to have become less of 
a danger
as far as one can tell. The war in Ukraine is raging still, but none the 
less we
decided to organize BachoTeX 2023 at the usual dates and venue.

We hope that for the fall and to make up for the lost time by keeping the
same theme as the cancelled 2020 conference.

Please find below the call for papers for BachoTeX 2023, with the same 
theme as
planned for BachoTeX 2020 and 2022.

The dates are from 29th of April until 3rd of May, 2023.

Registrations will be announced separately as soon as possible.

The 28th GUST TeX conference

A model kit.
Modeling and implementing text typesetting in TeX and other systems.

TeX as a program created by a scientist - Professor of The Art of Computer
Programming, D. E. Knuth - stands out among other typesetting programs.
Here we have not only an implementation but also a theoretical model to
explain its behavior. For example the line breaking algorithm is based on
the "algebra of glue and boxes". Algorithms designed for TeX became the
basis for several scientific publications. TeX became a suitable
environment for research in typography.

We ask participants to reflect on the dependencies between theoretical
models and implementation. Do they help or are they an obstacle?

* Papers/presentations

Of course we also look forward to the normal mix of TeX, Metafont/Metapost
(please, do not forget the fonts!), ConTeXt, LaTeX, and friends related
presentations. We also do upkeep the BachoTeX trend in which we try to bring
together programmers and designers of typographic systems, typographers and
other users of such systems. The normal channel of offering papers is the
emailing of proposals to the Program Committee, but before rushing off 
to the
mailer, please consult the info for authors.
* Workshops and tutorials

We look forward to 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.

* Poster sessions

As always at BachoTeX participants will be given the opportunity to
present their TeX and typographic results in the form of posters for
which we provide exhibition space.

* Deadlines and addresses

The deadline for "regular" abstracts and other proposals is March 26th,
2023. The deadline for final papers to appear in the conference materials
is April 16th. Contributions should be sent by email to the Program

      prog-2023 at gust.org.pl.

The Program Committee is chaired by Bogusław Jackowski
(b_jackowski at gust dot org dot pl).
