             15th Annual Meeting of the European TeX Users              
                          EuroTeX 2005

                    (Pont-à-Mousson, France)			  

EuroTeX 2005 will be a special one: we celebrate the
2^{2^{2^{2^{2^{-\infty}}}}} = 16th anniversary of both Dante and
GUTenberg.  EuroTeX 2005 will take place Between Metz and Nancy in the
Premonstratension Abbey of Pont-à-Mousson, in a facility where we can
all be in one place.  There will be talks and free workshops and more
than enough opportunities to discuss and share experiences. The
conference is also a great opportunity to meet the people who make it

The site of the conference is under construction at:

The theme of the conference will be:

    _Let's TeX Together!_

Possible topics include:
    * TeX, TeX extensions, tools
    * Macros and formats
    * Fonts: math fonts, OpenType, etc.
    * Metapost, Metafont, Metafun, etc.
    * Typography and digital documents
    * Professional experiences with TeX

Tutorials will be offered during the first part of the conference, from
March 7th at noon to Tuesday 8th evening.  Invited speakers and regular
speakers will give talks during the second part from Wednesday 9th to
Friday 11th. People are invited to submit original papers on any of the
topics listed above or any other topic related to the main theme of the
conference. The topics list above is by no way exhaustive.

Paper submissions, proposals for tutorials and remarks relating to the
program of the meeting should be sent to the Program Committee mailing
list (mailto:eurotex2005-program at gutenberg.eu.org) by September 1st,
2004. Important: because of the international audience, we expect
submissions in English.

And last but not least ...  because 16 is a special number for computer
scientists, we have good hope that the well known author of TeX, Donald
E.  Knuth be our special guest. We also hope to have Hermann Zapf, who
has a special place in the TeX community as special guest.

We expect users and contributors from all over the world to attend the
conference.  We are currently working on the program, so feel free to
submit topics, suggestions.

The organization committee hope that you will join us in Pont-à-Mousson.

We do not have yet all the information regarding pricing, only an upper
limit of what we will get. We are doing our possible to keep the price
as low as possible while providing the best accommodation and food.

Currently, in order to simplify registration handling, we plan to offer
only 2 options which will include accommodation, meals, coffee breaks,
gala diner, conference fee and materials.  There will be an early-bird
discount offer according to the calendar, so stay tuned.  Full
registration information will be published on the conference web site

Tutorials by themselves will be offered for free. The higher price will
cover accommodation, meals and facility rental.

There will be a supplementary tour organized on Saturday 12th. We are still
discussing different options about it.
