  • the meals, refreshment breaks and bonfire times migh slightly change…

This a little lighter day is devoted to workshops and tutorials as well as working meetings of the various interest groups.

For beginners and perhaps for non-beginners who will not partake in the workgroups meetings: workshops by Adam Kolany, Grzegorz Murzynowski and Norbert Preining. Everyone is invited!

We will conclude the working part of the day with Norbert Preining giving a preview on TeX Live 2009 and collecting wishes for TL2009 and TL2010.

May 2nd

Typography day at BachoTeX: since some time we are trying to devote significant amounts of time to typography, and we seem to succeed. At this conference, typography will be presented at various levels—from an almost philosophical point of view down to day-to-day practice.

The Typography Counsel, though not listed in the schedule, will be held throughout the day. If successful, we will try to continue in a similar fashion during future BachoTeX conferences. Enjoy and profit!

At the end of the day Marek Ryćko with the conference's “title” panel discussion will try to reap the results of the panelists' and the members' of audience intensive thinking since Wednesday (see the Wednesday schedule).
