Dear TeX users and friends,

if the times were normal, a few days ago we would have had returned from
BachoTeX 2022 and would not have lost the BachoTeX conferences in the years
2020 and 2021. Fortunately, as far as the SARS-CoV-2 virus is concerned the
the prognosis seems optimistic for the coming months.

Despite yet another danger looming in the east, we decided to organize
BachoTeX 2022 in the fall and to make up for the lost time by keeping the
same theme as the cancelled 2020 conference.

Please find below the call for papers for BachoTeX 2022, to be held from
21st September until 25th September.

Registrations will be announced separately as soon as possible.

                 The 28th GUST TeX conference

                         A model kit.
Modeling and implementing text typesetting in TeX and other systems.

TeX as a program created by a scientist — Professor of The Art of Computer
Programming, D. E. Knuth — stands out among other typesetting programs.
Here we have not only an implementation but also a theoretical model to
explain its behavior. For example the line breaking algorithm is based on
the “algebra of glue and boxes”. Algorithms designed for TeX became the
basis for several scientific publications. TeX became a suitable
environment for research in typography.

We ask participants to reflect on the dependencies between theoretical
models and implementation. Do they help or are they an obstacle?

* Papers/presentations

Of course we also look forward to the normal mix of TeX,
Metafont / Metapost (please, do not forget the fonts!), ConTeXt, LaTeX, and
friends related presentations. We also do upkeep the BachoTeX trend in
which we try to bring together programmers and designers of typographic
systems, typographers and other users of such systems. The normal channel
of offering papers is the emailing of proposals to the Program Committee,
but before rushing off to the mailer, please consult the info for authors.

* Workshops and tutorials

We look forward to proposals for TeX-related tutorials or introductions.
If you have suggestions for tutorials or workshops by others than
yourself or about specific topics, please let us know.

* Poster sessions

As always at BachoTeX participants will be given the opportunity to
present their TeX and typographic results in the form of posters for
which we provide exhibition space.

* Deadlines and addresses

The deadline for “regular” abstracts and other proposals is August 21st,
2022. The deadline for final papers to appear in the conference materials
is September 4th. Contributions should be sent by email to the Program
