This full day workshop for graduate students is an introduction to LaTeX, giving you the basics that you need to know to get going on writing academic and professional papers, including your thesis. Using Overleaf, presenters will share how to include images, design beautiful mathematical equations, and show you how to easily manage your documents.
We are currently facing a number of social, political, environmental, and health challenges. How do advances addressing these areas (in research or technology) affect the way we live and work? How and when should ethical implications be considered while navigating these challenges?
Are you speaking the same language? Language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) are important for communicating with others, but effective communication requires more than just speaking the same language, it requires a fifth skill – cultural understanding.
