Zip archive of workshop files.

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,
Hmisc;
- and a front-end:
- either Rstudio, and then, from
Rstudio's Tools->Install, these packages: tidyverse, ggthemes, rpart,
rpart.plot;
- or Emacs +
AucTeX +
ESS.
Vincent Goulet has constructed convenient Emacs distributions for
Windows and
Mac systems
which include ESS+AUCTeX.

After you have installed R, you can install knitr, tikzDevice and
Hmisc using the R packaging system.

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.
