Getting Started with LaTeX Workshop

Time & Date: 2 PM – 3:30 PM, Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019
Location: B112, Okanagan College, Kelowna BC

Talk Abstract: We will be providing a workshop environment to present the document preparation tool, LaTeX, including what exactly a LaTeX document is, and why one would want to use LaTeX. Developed by the LaTeX Project and distributed for free under the LaTeX Project Public License, LaTeX uses markup tagging to define the structure of a document and was created for the production of technical and scientific documentation.

This will be a “bring your own computer” interactive workshop, where the participants will follow the presenter in order to create an IEEE-standard formatted document, including Images, Tables, References, Lists, and Sections.
