### Study before you start

There will be three workshops on Sunday 20 July (the day before the conference starts) -- see the schedule on the left.

Introduction to LA TEXThis will explain the concept of TEX and then start with creating a simple document with what you need to include, such as packages, and how they work. It will explain the sections, subsections, theorems, lemmas, itemizing, enumerating, tables and figures. We will learn how to do mathematics as well as bibliographies, with BiBTEX and bibitem. We will also add some graphics.

PSTricks for beginning and intermediate usersWe start from the basic PSTricks commands and discuss various PSTricks techniques and applications. The topics include

- My first PSTricks figure
