On April 5th we organized a second edition of our very successful LaTeX introductory workshop.
RSG member Zuogong was the trainer for this session.
He introduced the basic concepts of the language, the fundamental operations to create a document and its building blocks, and then how to deal with figures, tables and citations.
The theoretical part was followed by a step-by-step practical session in which all attendees were able to create their first LaTeX document.
This month we had presentations by Gaia and Ursula.
Gaia presented the paper:
