Accepted works in English

  • Requirements for a Music Engraving Program: a Composer's Point of View (Jean-Michel Hufflen, University of Bourgogne Franche-Comté)

It is well-known that some typesetting systems are interactive, that is, wysiwyg, whereas some--wysiwym--work like compilers and process input files written using an input language. Interactive systems provide interesting features, whereas other qualities are implemented by wysiwym systems. We can observe the same points about music engraving programs. In this article, we summarise the properties of interest during the music composition process and review some music engraving programs from this point of view.

  • A Template Engine with TeX and Friends (Paulo Roberto Massa Cereda, Università di San Paolo, Brasile)

This article presents some insights towards using template engines with TeX and friends with the help of a command line tool written for the sole purpose of merging data sources and templates.
