Event description

Description

Your trainer for this workshop is Meirian Lovelace-Tozer, Research Community Coordinator for Research Platform Services, The University of Melbourne.

This workshop is being held on Thursday 7th December from 9.30am - 4pm.

About this event:

Have you ever tried to write a large document, only to find your conventional word processor can’t keep up? Are you looking for a better way to handle your references? Do you have special typesetting requirements, such as heavy use of mathematical notation, and you need it to look professional?

LaTeX is a mark-up language focused on beautiful typesetting, and handles large, complex documents with ease. It is a standard tool in scientific and technical research fields, and is well-suited to the needs of people in the humanities.

This free workshop will provide a gentle introduction to basic LaTeX usage, with a focus on thesis and article typesetting. You will leave with a LaTeX template that you can adapt for your own work.

Please bring with you:

  • a laptop with internet access and a web browser;

  • a laptop charger;

  • a ShareLaTeX account, which you can create for free by clicking ‘Register’ at www.sharelatex.com and supplying an email and password (Note: currently, the University of Melbourne has a ShareLaTeX licence, so registering with a valid unimelb email address will give you a free account upgrade).

You are not required to have any additional software nor prior knowledge of LaTeX or programming.

Please contact meirian.lovelacetozer (at) gmail.com if you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer as a helper!

This event is bought to you by Research Platform Services.
