TUG '99
University of British Columbia Vancouver, BC Canada
August 15-19, 1999

The TeX Users Group is proud to a nnounce the twentieth annual meeting to be held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, August 15-19, 1999.

The theme for the meeting has been announced - it is "TeX Online: Untangling the Web and Tex."

The Program Committee is interested in focusing on ``state-of-the-art'' TEX/LATEX, providing practical information on using macro packages, installing and using existing software tools, announcing new macro packages, new software tools or new approaches using TEX/LATEX. We are committed to making this conference one in which each presentation or workshop adds value for the publishing professional--author, publisher, consultant, developer. To better serve the TUG community, the Program Committee would like to provide parallel sessions. For example, a paper may be presented about ``LaTeX2$_{\textstyle\epsilon}$: Improving Table/Figure Macros'', which would go into technical detail about these macros. At the same time, a workshop could be provided with step by step instructions for placing your tables and figures in the best location.

We encourage everyone to consider attending and presenting, especially publishers, commercial vendors of TEX, and consultants. We intend to provide a time for each to discuss or display their services and/or products.

We plan to provide full courses the week before the conference. Topics, dates, instructors to be announced later.
