TUG 2002 Annual Meeting and Conference
September 1-7, Trivandrum, India

We are pleased to announce that the most exciting TeX event of
2002, the international conference of TeX Users Group is
scheduled to be conducted in India during September 1--7, 2002
at Park Center, Technopark, Trivandrum, Kerala. This is going
to be the first of its kind in the subcontinent and we are
hoping for excellent participation.

You are warmly invited to participate and/or offer a
presentation at this most exciting event. We want to make this  a
big success, and we want lots of high-quality presentations. The
theme for TUG 2002 is `Stand up and be proud of TeX!'. Show us
why it is still the typesetting tool of choice, the range of
material it can handle, and especially how it can coexist with
the new world of XML. We want to hear about

    * using TeX to typeset XML
    * multilingual typesetting using Omega
    * high-quality hyperdocuments using pdfTeX
    * fonts for non-Latin languages
    * new directions for Metafont and Metapost

suffice it to say here that Kerala is a very beautiful part of
India, where you will be sure of very warm hospitality and
excellent facilities. This is a marvellous opportunity to visit
