                           Call for Papers

    This is the call for papers for EuroBachoTeX 2007, the XVII European
TeX Conference April 28--May 2, 2007, Bachotek (Brodnica Lake
District), Poland.

    The conference is organized jointly by CSTUG, the Czechoslovak
TeX Users Group and GUST, the Polish TeX Users Group.

    The general conference idea is to be true to its title

                "TeX -- Paths to the future"
    The community is putting a lot of effort in terms of thought and
deliverables into areas critical to the future of TeX:

* new TeX engines
* enhancing graphics engines
* new or improved macro packages
* user interfaces
* new font technologies

The results find their way

* first into CTAN
* and then TeX distributions

This is perhaps a trivial observation, but nonetheless an important one:
in the center of any of those the users should stand as nothing
of the above has any value if it does not get adopted by them.

    The Program Committee does not restrict what your presentations should
be about but would be more than happy if your contribution will be
user centric and oriented towards the future of TeX.

    Proposals for TeX related tutorials or introductions are especially
welcome. If you have suggestions for tutorials or workshops by others than
yourself or about specific topics, please let us know.

    Proposals (abstracts) should be e-mailed to attention of the Program
Committee which listens at the address of  
papers-EBT2007 at gust dot org dot pl. Boguslaw Jackowski is the
appointed chairman.

    The deadline for abstracts is 5th of March. The deadline for the
final papers will soon be published at the conference web site:

                           Call for TeX Pearls

We are continuing the tradition of "The Pearls of TeX Programming".
Here is briefly what is wanted:

   * short TeX, MF or MP macro/macros
   * results should be virtually useful yet not obvious
   * easy to explain: 10 minutes at most

If you yourself have something that fits the bill, please consider.
If you know somebody's work that does the same, please let us know,
we will contact the person. Other details and previously collected
pearls can be found at http://www.gust.org.pl/projects/pearls/.
The email address is: pearls at gust dot org dot pl.
