Dear TeXers,

Spring is upon us, with much interesting news.

Several important conferences opened the registration

1.  I am pleased to announce that TUG2018 in Rio (July 20--22)
    has published a registration page and call for papers:
    https://tug.org/tug2018/.  This year TUG is a satellite conference
    for the International Congress of Mathematicians.

    Welcome news for citizens of the US, Australia, Canada & Japan:
    Brazil opened eVisa program, which makes obtaining visa much easier.

    Please note that TUG2018 will include the Annual Meeting of TUG.

2.  We have a Practical TeX conference in Troy, NY, USA (June 25--27). 
    Info and registration at https://tug.org/practicaltex2018/.

3.  Another TeX tradition, BachoTeX in Poland (April 28--May 2),

In other news, I am glad to welcome a new institutional member
of TUG, Harris Space and Intelligence Systems.  It is especially
noteworthy for me personally, since I was a Harris employee in
2015--2017, and have very pleasant memories of working there.  

On the international front, Lithuania recently celebrated 100 years of
its Act of Independence.  Lithuanian designers celebrated it with a nice
handwriting font based on the manuscript of the act:

Finally, the first issue of TUGboat for 2018 is coming along well.  More
submissions of all types are welcome! The deadline we're aiming for is
March 16.  Please see https://tug.org/TUGboat/ for more information.

Have a great spring - and see you at our conferences!

Boris Veytsman (TUG president)
