# Wednesday Week 6

LaTeX (pronounced lay-tek) is a document creation system for high-quality typesetting. It is most often used for technical or scientific documents such as a thesis, but it can be used for almost any form of publishing, such as letters and resumes.

We're holding three identical face to face workshops for any interested students (including non-elsoc members).
If you can't make this session, hopefully you can make our other sessions (links below). They're identical, you only need to go to one.

If you can only make the first hour of one session, come along anyway, you'll get the basics, and will only miss out on some more advanced stuff.

If you can't make either session, you can still learn from the standalone guide and video at http://www.elsoc.net/guide-to-latex.html

If you are coming, you can either use the lab computers provided, or bring your own laptop. If bringing your own laptop, please attempt installation prior to the workshop (by following the instructions in the guide at the above link), as we don't have enough time during the workshop.

LaTeX follows the design philosophy of separating presentation from content, so that authors can focus on the content of what they are writing without attending simultaneously to its visual appearance. LaTeX is free software which works on Windows, Mac and Linux machines. The learning curve is steep compared to programs such as Microsoft Word. However once you surmount that initial curve, you will be able to efficiently create beautiful documents, with easy cross references and bibliographies, and clear equations.
