Dear TeX users,

As we approach mid-August, it's time for another newsletter from TUG

Here in New Jersey, it seems as if most of the state has headed to the
shore for vacation, but in Tokyo, the local organizing committee for the
annual meeting is hard at work creating an outstanding schedule of
talks, excursions, and gatherings that should prove highly
educational. The meeting is October 23--26 at the University of Tokyo,
Komaba, Tokyo. For full details, check out the website at

The venues for 2014, 2015, and 2016 are beginning to firm up.
Check this space for more in the coming months.
