Event Details

LaTeX is a document preparation system that uses plain rather than formatted text, which encourages users to focus on content rather than formatting. This system is increasingly used for preparation of articles and theses, and has wide application across the sciences and humanities. This workshop will focus on the strengths of the LaTeX system in a) figure and caption creation and adjustment, b) bibliographic entry and formatting, c) support for scientific notation, mathematical symbols, and non-Latin characters as well as non-English accents and symbols, and d) easy management of large documents.

This workshop will be limited to 20 participants. Please email dal@ioa.ucla.edu to RSVP by Sunday, February 12th.
