Online Workshop: Introduction to LaTeX (EN)

Kursbereich 3: »Wissenschaftliche Methoden«

Target Group

PhD students and postdoctoral researchers of all research areas


This workshop will introduce doctoral candidates and postdoctoral researchers from various disciplines to LaTeX, a word-processing system specially designed to produce scientific documents. Compared to commonly used word processors such as Word, LaTeX offers the advantage that many tasks can be automated and no longer have to be done manually, e.g., creating a bibliography.

Participants will learn the basic concepts of LaTeX and can create simple text documents, correct errors and become familiar with LaTeX. Topics covered include the structure of a LaTeX document, integrating various design elements such as graphics and tables, setting mathematical formulae, and various options for customising the layout and appearance of the document.

No previous knowledge is required. The workshop will use the online environment Overleaf; participants should ideally create an account on in advance.
