LaTeX Document Compilation

4th May 2018

Time: 9:30 aM - 4:00 PM

COMSATS Institute of Information technology, Abbottabad

Registration closed. The workshop is fully booked.

LaTeX is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting. It includes features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the communication and publication of scientific documents. LaTeX has a few advantages over MS Word when it comes to specific document types. It has unparalleled stability when it comes to large documents (theses, books, or technical reports) with many cross-references, tables, graphs and sections. It is most often used for technical or scientific papers writing for journals by researchers, engineers and mathematicians at large. The typesetting system offers programmable writing features and extensive facilities for automating most aspects of typesetting. The various features of Latex are:

- It is platform-independent and software independent.

- Typesetting journal articles, technical reports, books, and slide presentations.

- Control over large documents containing sectioning, cross-references, tables and figures.

- Typesetting of complex mathematical formulas.

- Advanced typesetting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX.

- Automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes.

- Multi-lingual typesetting.

- Inclusion of artwork, and process or spot colour.

This workshop will provide hands on practical experience on LaTeX.
