The conference will be held online via Zoom. Thanks to the University
of Adelaide, Australia, for making this possible.
We envision a schedule similar to a physical conference, with talks
of approximately 30-40 minutes and several breaks throughout the day. We
also hope to offer several workshops. The times will be determined after
we have a better sense of the timezone that will work best, how many
presentation proposals are received, etc.
As always, the success of the conference depends on speakers coming
forward. Please email the conference
committee with proposals and abstracts. Call for
We request that all participants and speakers register for the
conference, although it is free of charge. (Donations are most
welcome to help defray expenses and to support TeX and TUG.)
We dearly hope it will be possible to have the 2021 conference
(physically) at RIT, as had been planned for this year.
For this first online TUG conference, we especially need lots of help
for it to go well. Some of the jobs we know we'll need volunteers for:
- Introducers for some speakers and to manage the chat. Ideally
someone with some knowledge of the subject of the talk. It will be the
job of this person to parse the messages on the chat and present a small
set of questions to the speaker.
- Managers for the break rooms and/or social events.
- A/V coaches for the speakers. We will have a short manual with
recommendations and best practices, minimal requirements, hardware, etc.
But beyond this, the best to maximize the chance of a good talk, purely
on the technical side, is to have a one-to-one with the speakers in
advance about their A/V setup: displaying slides, good audio, good
visual frame, headphones and/or a good microphone to avoid feedback, etc.
