Monday, Jan 14, 19:00-21:00, BIB members Oriol Borrega and Pedro Tiago Martins will
give the first of four tutorial sessions on LaTeX, a typesetting
system for writing high-quality technical and scientific documents such
as papers, reports, theses and books. Because of the quality of the
documents it produces and also the ease and versatility with which it
manages references, LaTeX has been the de facto standard in several scientific fields for years and is now enjoying a growth of popularity among academics in general.
first session will be about the fundamentals of LaTeX and its
advantages when compared to word processors. No previous knowlege of
LaTeX is assumed. By the end of the session, participants will have learned what LaTeX is and how it works. They will also be given a little
exercise that will allow them to produce a simple, nice-looking
document, with more to be explored in the subsequent sessions.
The meeting place will be the computers' room (4.4) at Edifici Josep Carner, UB. See you all at 19:00 and feel free
to spread the word to anyone interested!
