Call for papers

Composed thoughts

This year’s theme, “Composed thoughts,” can be interpreted in several ways. First, it can be seen as a reference to the process of creating a document with TEX, during which thoughts can be separated from the final graphical form into which they will be composed. Second, the theme can be seen as a reference to TEX’s potential for “composing” thoughts: ways of conveying complex ideas, structuring arguments, and illustrating them with specialized notations and diagrams. Finally, this year’s theme can be seen as an invitation to reflect on where the order, structure, and “being well composed” ends, and in what situations the tool we use ceases to be elegant, and chaos creeps into files.

We invite you to participate in the conference and encourage you to show your “composed thoughts,” as well as those more chaotic because, at BachoTEX, ideas are born between heads.


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 March 24th 2024. The deadline for final papers to appear in the conference materials is April 14th. Contributions should be sent by email to the Program Committee. The Program Committee is chaired by Bogusław Jackowski.
