Workshop: Writing Mathematics in LaTeX

Presented by Bernhard Stöger

It's by no means easy for a blind person to write mathematical formulae such that they can be read by sighted people, and that they even look nice for them. The codes in which blind people normally write Mathematics are hard to read by sighted ones, and, if a sighted person managed to learn such a code, then it won't appeal to him/her from an esthetic viewpoint.


Workshop: LaTeX for Beginners - Writing and structuring LaTeX documents

Presented by Thorsten Schwarz

You know about LaTeX, but you don't know how to use it?
This workshop is aimed at getting familiar with the bare bones of LaTeX. From the basic ideas to your first document.

Covered topics:


Workshops: Tactile Math Function Graph Perception 1 and 2

Presented by Petr Cervenka, Lukas Masilko and Jiri Pecl

Workshop 1
Target group: students track (Teachers/experts/transcribers are welcome to attend the workshop, since it gives them a lot of useful feedback)


Workshop: Accessibility of Mathematical and Learning Potential Tests in Real Practice

Presented by Ondrej Necas and Svatoslav Ondra.


Workshop: Octave

Presented by Julien Claassen

This workshop is about the multi-OS high level, numerical mathematics software Octave. It is focussed on giving the listener a short introduction into the paradigm of the program and introduce the audience to basic usage in the field of mathematical analysis. This is done by means of simple examples, leading up to a complete curve sketching.
