Workshop on “LATEX WRITING”

The aim was to provide hands on practice to the learners on the aspects of doing documentation work on open source, scientific tool. This workshop targets those candidates who are not at all familiar with Latex. Dr. Satnam Singh, Assistant Professor of Physics, in Sant Baba Bhag Singh University was the Resource person of this workshop.
The workshop is divided into two sessions to facilitate each participant with all aspects of LATEX. Many faculties and research scholars of the different departments, Institute of SBBSU have participated in the workshop.
Dr. Nisha Sharma, Convener of workshop and Head of Department of Physical Sciences welcomed the candidates and briefed them about the importance of LaTeX.
