About the Workshop

Amrita College of Engineering and technology is pleased to announce conduct of a one-day workshop in LaTeX (which is pronounced «Lah-tech» or «Lay-tech») on 14/03/2020. LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system; 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. Elsevier, Kluwer, and other major publishers provide style files for writing scientific papers in LaTeX. It is also used as the key method of displaying formula on Wikipedia. LaTeX is available as free software.

This workshop is designed to provide hands-on experience in the following areas:

  1. Typesetting journal articles, technical reports, books, and slide presentations.
  2. Control over large documents containing sectioning, cross-references, tables and figures.
  3. Typesetting of complex mathematical formulas.
  4. Advanced typesetting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX.
  5. Automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes.
  6. Multi-lingual typesetting.
  7. Inclusion of artwork, and process or spot colour.
