Computing Seminars/Talks: A brief intro to the thesis template

Presented by John Lawson, Durham

1 February 2017 16:00 in E005

Since 2001 postgrad students have passed down an old tattered thesis template from year to year. Last year Steven Charlton gave it some well needed care and attention, packaged it up a bit nicer and made it a little more accessible. I'll be giving a brief introduction to what the template involves, how to use it and how to change it. This is primarily aimed at final year PhDs who are starting to write up, but anyone might find it useful and could perhaps learn something about the inner workings of a latex class.

This series of talks/seminars has the intention of sharing some practical computing skills in the department.

The talks are primarily aimed at PhD students in the early part of their PhDs, though they might also be of interest to students further through their PhDs and perhaps even others in the department. The idea is for older PhD students, and maybe other researchers, to share some tips and techniques that they’ve learnt from their own research in whichever software tools they use. It is hoped that this way we can share some useful tips and techniques and avoid new researchers having to spend a long time googling for ways to solve some common problems.

Supplementary files for these talks can be found here.
