About this Event:
Have you ever tried to write a large document, only to find your conventional word processor can’t keep up? Are you looking for a better way to handle your references? Do you have special typesetting requirements, such as heavy use of mathematical notation, and you need it to look professional?LaTeX is a mark-up language focused on beautiful typesetting, and handles large, complex documents with ease. It is a standard tool in scientific and technical research fields, and is well-suited to the needs of people in the humanities.
