LaTeX is a code language for typesetting documents, for example your thesis, scientific paper, or hand-in. It produces professional looking documents and typesets mathematical expressions well, making it the standard (and often requirement) for academic documents.

This workshop requires no prior knowledge of LaTeX and will help you through the rough start which new users of LaTeX experience. We show you how to correctly format text and how to include mathematical expressions, tables and images.

For this workshop we will use Overleaf. You can create a free account on Please bring a laptop since the workshop will include exercises.

This workshop is organised by the TeXniCie committee of study association A-Eskwadraat. We facilitate use of LaTeX for exact science studies, by organizing extracurricular courses. Information about our activities can be found on our website

Question & Answer

Question: References don't appear in the bibliography. Biber shows this reference as (book, label). How do I fix it?
Answer: Set Biber as the default bibliography manager (see thesis manual). With some older LaTeX distributions Biber is missing. Biber is often installed in C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64. Is it missing? Update MiKTeX, or, in the worst case, reinstall MiKTeX.
