Typ09, the 2009 ATypI conference, will be held in Mexico City from October 26 to October 30, 2009.

The conference theme is 'The Heart of the Letter'.

This week-long event will consist of three days of workshops and small events held at Anáhuac University’s hilltop campus, and two days of main programming held in the Centro Histórico, the historic center of the city. All venues in the Centro, including the main conference hotel, are within easy walking distance.

The October dates are a bit later in the year than most of our recent conferences have been, but they offer several advantages, including avoiding the rainy season in Mexico. Please mark your calendars accordingly.

Last year's conference was held inA in St Petersburg (Russia)
