Lunch Meeting on Introduction to LaTeX –   October 13th , 12:30-13:30


Very few technologies can still be useful and valid since the 1970s LaTeX is one of them.

This typesetting software developed by Donald Knuth is still the weapon of choice in many academic fields for article and thesis writing. Normally computer science students start using it for their final year projects but there is no reason not to use it in other fields. In this lunch time introduction we will take you through the basic features of this powerful software and provide you with enough to get you started.



Date: 13th October, 2011 (Wednesday)

Time: 12:30 - 13:30

Venue: TBA
