On behalf of The TeX Users Group and Duke University I would like to invite you to attend PracTeX 2005. The conference will be held in Chapel Hill, NC, a congenial college town known to its inhabitants as the Southern Part of Heaven. Building on the success of PracTeX 2004 in San Francisco, this four-day conference focuses on practical techniques for document production using LaTeX, TeX, ConTeXt, MetaPost, and friends. It includes one day of classes and tutorials, followed by three days of presentations and workshops.

Hope to see you there!
