I’ve just discovered that the LaTeX course organised by the UK TeX Users Group and the University of East Anglia is now fully booked.
There’s clearly a need for introductory courses like these!
It sounds like the UK TeX Users Group will repeat this course later in the year if there’s sufficient demand. Joseph Wright writes:
We are starting a list of interested people in case anyone drops out, and will be looking at holding another course later in the year if there is the interest. So do consider sending a registration e-mail: the more people we know are interested the more likely it is that another course can be organised.
Who to Contact
As before, please email Joseph Wright <firstname.lastname@example.org> with details of your experience with LaTeX and your academic subject area.
In London on July 30th the UK TeX Users Group and the University of East Anglia will be running a course on how to use LaTeX to write a thesis.
You don’t need to be an expert to take part – the course is aimed at people new to LaTeX. The topics covered include:
- Creating a document
- Document structure
- Managing a bibliography with BibTeX
The course only costs £10, so I imagine places will be taken very quickly.
To register, e-mail Joseph Wright <email@example.com> and include:
- Details of your LaTeX experience (if any)
- If you’re bringing a laptop with you to the course
- What your general subject area is (to help plan the course content)
- Any special requirements (diet, access, etc.)
Full details of the course (including the programme) are posted here: http://uk.tug.org/2010/06/17/latex-training-course-using-latex-to-write-a-thesis/.
