Conference schedule

This schedule might still be changed, though not significantly.

Please note:

  • GUST's Annual General Meeting (Saturday, May 1st, at 20:00);
  • the meals, refreshment breaks and bonfire times might slightly change…

April 30th

We will start the conference with Adam Kolany's talk about how to cope with what one has when one doesn't have anything but one must and from there smoothly into various typographic problems from TeX's perspectiveᾰKees van der Laan will tackle TeX education and finally we'll get a glimpse of the future of books, i.e., the electronic paper.

A panel discussion on “E-paper” led by Piotr Bolek will conclude the presentations for the day.

And, there is more to come: after dinner a not-so-long and relaxing movie evening.

We hope that this will be a beautiful day. To start with, we'll stick to programing seen as a tool for creating beauties: Kees van der Laan on painting with a computer. From here on the main conference theme—programing tools for typography.

The before-evening, after-noon session will bring info on future of LuaTeX and MetaPost (being also tools helping to achieve typographic beauty.) We conclude the working day with clashing (hopefully harmlessly) TeX mindsets with reality.

After dinner, the GUST AGM will be held, with the elections of the new Board.

May 2nd

Sunday will be devoted for working and interests groups meetings, poster sessions and presentations tackling mainly TeXnicalities. Please note the block of three presentations devoted to the PARCAT system, which seems to draw its strenghts from TeX.

May, 4th

That's, unfortunately, the last day of the Bachotek meeting in 2010. We keep the participants on their toes until the very end. Mathias Nater will tell about TeX encroaching into the world of web browsers. Paweł Jackowski will present this year's catch. Kasia Burakowska, a humanist amongst technocrats, will charm us in color.

For desert, after all those tasty days, we'll have the unfailing Andrzej Tomaszewski telling us how the pilcrow sign morphed into a beer mug...

Farewell, and let's meet in 2011, during the next BachoTeX conference!
