Lunch Workshop

An Introduction to (La)TeX

Thursday 23 May 2019 (12:15 - 13:15h)

 Atlas building (room Atlas 2), Wageningen Campus, the Netherlands


(La)TeX is a document preparation system and markup language which can be used as an alternative to text processors like MS-WORD. It automates many of the time-consuming tasks such as formatting, figure placement and bibliography management, and produces consistent, typographically neat output in PDF format that looks the same on any computer. It is most useful for writing professional publications, reports and papers, and is cross-platform, free and open-source software.

This is an introductory workshop especially aimed at those who have little or no experience working with LaTeX. There will be a theoretical and a hands-on practical part. The theoretical part covers the basics of what TeX and LaTeX are, how they compare with Office text processors, and how to get started with writing documents. The practical is a hands-on demonstration of some of the more useful features of LaTeX, such as making Gantt charts and bibliography management.

Participants are invited to bring their own laptops to the practical part. The practical part will be done on Papeeria, an online LaTeX editor, so no existing software installation is required.

12:15 - 12:30 Theory presentation
12:30 - 12:45 Question and answer session, break
12:45 - 13:15 Practical, hands-on demonstration of LaTeX capabilities on Papeeria
