ATypI 08 St Petersburg

TypeTech/TypeTools Forum information and timetable

Preliminary content, subject to change.

The ATypI TypeTech/TypeTools Forum is a two-day event dedicated to font technology. It is part of the annual ATypI conference and takes places before the main conference programme. The TypeTech/TypeTools Forum consists of two parallel tracks. The first track, the TypeTech Forum, is presented by ATypI. The second track, the TypeTools Forum, is presented by FontLab (first day) and by Dutch Type Library (second day).

The registration to the TypeTech/TypeTools Forum is separate from the main conference registration. It is possible to register just for the TypeTech/TypeTools Forum, just for the main conference or for both parts. Registration to the TypeTech/TypeTools Forum gives you access to both the TypeTech and the TypeTools tracks.

Just like the main conference, the TypeTech/TypeTools Forum will be held at the Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace, St Petersburg, Russia.
