This full day workshop for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows 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.

Attendees will need to bring their own laptop (or tablet with keyboard) in order to fully participate in the workshop. It is recommended that you also bring your charger.

Please sign up for an Overleaf account, through the University of Waterloo Overleaf portal, prior to the workshop. 

Registration is required through Eventbrite

*A $10.00 materials fee will be charged in the event of a late cancellation (fewer than 3 days or more before the workshop/event date), no show, or incomplete attendance.
