Learn to write sientific articles in LaTeX. LaTeX is the universal scientific language for writing and typesetting, whether it is a projekt report, a scientific article, or even a great looking CV.

In the course, we will go through the basics of LaTeX, and on how to installing an open source compiler and editor on your PC or Mac. We will also introduce you to different templates for Latex. The course will include four small exercises, where you will use the covered material. By the end of the course you will be able to use LaTeX on a basic level.

Before the course  a quick guide " how to install LaTeX " will be provided.

N.B. The course is limited to 20 participants. In case no non Danish speakers attend the course, it will be held in Danish.

The LaTeX course is held by Gunvor Elisabeth Kirkelund, Assistant Professor at Aarhus University School of Engineering. Gunvor is an experienced and long-time LaTeX user. 
Kent Würtz (Cand.Polyt.Med.) will assist during the exercises. Kent is similarly an experienced LaTeX user and has used it to write his master thesis and throughout his engineering degree.
