LaTeX is a high-quality typesetting system, with features designed for the production of technical and scientific documentation. LaTeX has been largely used for the communication and publication of scientific documents.
This tutorial will cover the basic control commands and syntax of setting article layout, mathematical equations, lists, tables, figures and bibliographies. It will also introduce the flexible features of automatic numbering and cross-referencing. A one-hour, hands-on session will follow the lecture to help the attendees practice the LaTeX commands and give them the opportunity to write a practice scientific article using LaTeX.
