I have pasted in the following:


        I am pleased to announce that UK-TUG has arranged to run the 'LaTeX for
Beginners' training course in April. Please help spread the word by
forwarding the following announcement on to anyone who you feel would be


Joseph Wright
UK-TUG Secretary


The UK TeX Users' Group (UK-TUG) periodically runs training courses in
using LaTeX. We are very pleased to announce a presentation of our
beginners course, loosely entitled ‘Using LaTeX to write a thesis’. The
course will cover topics such as:

   * Setting up LaTeX on a computer
   * Creating basic documents
   * Logic structure in LaTeX documents
   * Including graphical material
   * Bibliographies
   * LaTeX Q&A

The course will be taking place on Friday April 15th in central
Cambridge, and will run from approximately 10 a.m. to around 4:30 pm.
The course will be aimed at new LaTeX users, with an emphasis on
hands-on experience. We will be using a computer lab equipped with
Windows PCs, but there will the opportunity to set up your system to use
LaTeX. More details about the full programme for the day will be
circulated to participants nearer to the course date.

Places are strictly limited by the size of the venue. To book a
provisional place, please e-mail address@hidden with
your details. The non-refundable course fee (£10) and the a copy of the
attached membership form should then be sent to Joseph Wright, UK-TUG
Secretary. (The course fee includes membership of UK-TUG for 2011.)
Payment should be sent within two weeks of making a provisional booking,
otherwise the space may be released. We will also hold a ‘reserve’ list
of names if the course reaches capacity: experience suggests that the
course will book up very rapidly.

The course material is intended as a general introduction to using
LaTeX. However, it is useful to have some idea about the interests of
those attending, as this enables us to prepare for at least some of the
potential questions. A brief outline of your background is therefore
encouraged along with your booking. It is also useful to know what
operating system you usually use, as this is useful when preparing
instructions on how to set up LaTeX for your own systems.


May be worth thinking about, if there is enough interest perhaps we can
get a course in the south west.
