Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format first specified by Adobe Systems in 1993. It was a proprietary format until it was released as an open standard on July 1, 2008, and published by the International Organization for Standardization.

This workshop presentation will provide various ways that PDF files can can be efficiently manipulated in Linux and other free software that may not be easy in proprietary operating systems or applications.

Lev Lafayette is the Senior HPC Support and Training Officer at the University of Melbourne, where he has been for three years. For eight years prior to that he worked at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing in a similar role. He has been a member of the Linux Users of Victoria as a committee or public officer since 2006.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.  Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.
