About the workshop
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. This workshop may cover some of the following key points: Introduction to TeX and LaTeX Text processing using LaTeX Introducing the input file test.tex. IDE’s for text processing using LaTeX Creating test.tex, compiling test.tex and viewing test.pdf Special characters in documents Blank spaces and blank lines Special characters (#, $ and the like) Changing font style (italics, bold and the like) Document Organisation Title matter (author, title and the like) Sectioning commands (chapter, section and the like) Table of contents documentclass options (paper size, number of columns and the like) Page style (heads and foots) Page format (margin size, text width and the like) Page numbering (1, 2, … or i, ii, … and the like) Centering and indenting Quotes Lists : Itemization Lists : Enumeration Lists : Description Footnotes Tables : Simple Tables : Multicolumn Tables : Multirows Mathematical Formulas Equations and formulas inline Displayed equation without equation numbers.
