LaTeX is a document preparation tool for producing professional looking technical

conference/journal papers and reports, books, and thesis.

Just started your degree? You’ll get a thorough introduction, so you’ll be making great looking papers and reports from the start of your degree.

Midway through? Don’t tear your hair out writing your thesis in Microsoft Word. With this workshop you’ll learn how to avoid the heartache and breeze  through your write-up.


Already know some LaTeX? We’ll help you move to the next level – all the stuff you wished you could do but couldn’t work out how to.

Why is this workshop useful to you?

  • You need to write technical papers – and your thesis.
  • Your papers need to have maths, equations, formulae…
  • You need to reference other peoples’ papers, have a numbered bibliography, maintain a database of the papers you’ve read, make indexes, tables of contents, etc.

LaTeX can make all of these things very easy for you. So you can focus on the most important thing – the content.
