This three-hour workshop provides participants with a general introduction to LaTeX. Afterwards, participants have enough knowledge to start writing articles and theses in LaTeX. 


Robert de Groote is a lecturer and researcher in applied computer science who uses LaTeX on a regular basis to write academic papers and teaching materials. He can show you how to go from having zero knowledge in LaTeX to writing a professional looking first report in LaTeX, and how to get the most from LaTeX for writing papers.


Interactive session; learning how to use computer programs is as much about teaching your fingers what to do, as it is about teaching your brain. After a segment of introductory exercises, participants can steer the further direction of the session through questions.


One three-hour evening session.
