There is no cost for either workshop, and you're welcome to attend
either one without coming to the conference itself.

### Introductory LaTeX workshop: all day Thursday, July 19

On July 19 we will hold an 8-hour TeX training workshop in
Portuguese: from basics to TikZ and beyond; installation clinic and
consultants available throughout the day.

To reserve a place in this workshop, please email paulo@berkeley.edu.

### R+knitr+LaTeX workshop: (tentatively) Saturday post-talks

Lab notebooks with LaTeX, R and knitr, led by Boris Veytsman.

The work of a research scientist involves keeping daily notebooks. Such
a working notebook is a document with text, equations, calculations,
figures, tables, code snippets which reflects the current state of the
lab research. This workshop teaches how to maintain such notebooks in
a TeX/R environment.

Prerequisites: please install the following on your computer—
a TeX distribution (preferably
TeX Live or
MiKTeX),
R with packages
knitr,
tikzDevice
and Hmisc.
For a front end, we can use either Rstudio or
Emacs +
AucTeX +
ESS.

After you have installed R, you can install knitr, tikzDevice and
Hmisc using the R packaging system. Also, Vincent Goulet has constructed
convenient Emacs distributions for Windows and
Mac systems
which include ESS+AUCTeX.

There is no fee for this workshop, but please let us know you're
planning to attend it in the comments field on the conference registration
form, or email us.
