Workshop on LATEX

School of Applied Sciences at Chitkara University is organizing a three-day workshop on LATEX, which is an extremely powerful markup language for creating structured documents. It is particularly well suited for documents containing mathematics, but can be used for any document.

People, whose publications involve a large number of mathematical equations, use LATEX.

It is the standard writing tool for most research carried out in the mathematical, physical and engineering sciences.
Latex provides a facility for pdf output so that it is easy to share your research with other people who do not have
LATEX installed.

Remarkably, LATEX is freeware.

Main Objective

The main objective of the workshop is to make the participants aware about LATEX. By the end of the workshop, the participants will be confident enough to do their documents using LATEX.
