Postdoc Tutorial: LaTeX Documents and Presentations

The Postdoctoral Association of Colorado, Boulder has organized this series of monthly tutorials/workshops on topics that may be useful to postdocs, students, and faculties across different disciplines.

Everyone is invited to attend! If you'd like to offer to give one workshop, and/or have topic ideas, please fill out this form. We'll be adding new topics as people offer them!

Please note: These seminars are given by postdocs, but are intended for all types of audience (students are welcome!).

Calendar of next tutorials: 

  • Friday, Oct. 4, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm: LaTeX Documents and Presentations, Valeria Barra, Department of Computer Science, CU Boulder
  • Friday Nov. 8, 10:00 am - 11:30 am: topic TBD
  • Friday Dec. 6, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm: topic TBD


In this LaTex tutorail we will learn some of the basics of LaTeX: typesetting different documents (such as, technical reports, books, and slide presentations), sectioning, cross-references, tables and different media (figures and videos), automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes, typing mathematical expressions; and, according to people's interest and time resources we can explore some more advanced topics, such as drawing graphic elements with the TikZ package.

Attendees can download ahead a LaTeX compiler on their system (MikTeX for Windows and Linux and MacTeX for Mac) and a LaTeX editor of their choice, or use the free online editor that we are going to use for the demo.

Material useful for the LaTeX tutorial will be further available on this dedicated GitHub Repo for attendees to download.
