LaTeX, a shortening for Lamport TeX, is a widely used document preparation system. The acceptability of a thesis paper quite depends upon the efficiency of the preparation of the writer's documents. LaTeX comes handy in this regard. According to the LaTeX project website, the features that this software provides are:
1. Type setting journal articles, technical reports, books, and slide presentations.
2. Control over large documents containing sectioning, cross-references, tables and figures.
3. Type setting of complex mathematical formulas.
4. Advanced type setting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX.
5. Automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes.
6. Multi-lingual typesetting.
7. Inclusion of artwork, and process or spot colour.
8. Using PostScript or Metafont fonts
9. Writing a quality scientific research paper is important for both pre and post graduate students. As IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group always aims at providing students the best assistance needed, we are arranging this workshop. If you are thinking of having a good start to LaTeX, join our workshop by getting registered. Remember seats are limited.
PCB, the printed circuit board, is the board base on which different components are electrically connected. It gives physical support to the components and is made of fiberglass or composite epoxy. PCBs are the main motherboards of any electronic device from simple ones to complex. Electronic devices can't be thought of without PCBs.
As the field of electronics is increasing, the scope for PCB designing is on the rise. Not only that, students interested in electronics and taking it as major should have a command over PCB designing to excel academically. An effective PCB design reduces the possibilities of error and the chances of short circuit. A good knowledge in PCB designing will help the students to make their innovative ideas and projects come into reality. It will give the authority to explore the field of electronics.

Seminar on Publishing Papers in Journals
IEEE RUET Student Branch organized Seminar on "What to Do to Publish Papers in High Impact Journals" on January 29, 2017 at ECE Seminar Room, ECE Building, RUET.
It is important to be aware of the acceptability of both the journal and the research paper among the scientific society while we are intending to publish our research outcomes in high quality journals. Hence knowing more about some key points is vital to write a paper. This seminar was for those individuals who are planning to publish papers. In the seminar, they got the opportunity of having a clear concept about the following points: Basic norms for publishing research outcomes,Identifying the quality of the journal, Identification of the best time for paper submission, An idea of using different word processors for writing papers,Representation of the research outcomes in the best way,How to address the reviewers' comments.Speaker's Profile:Dr. Apel MahmudB.Sc.

Workshop on EndNote
EndNote is a citation software package. It is produced by Thomson Reuters and commercially used to manage bibliographies and references when writing technical articles.
In technical paper writing such as Thesis papers, Research articles, Journals, even during writing a book, adding references is a must. But while adding a huge number of references, a writer faces many difficulties. In order to make it easier, software is used. EndNote is the most popular one for this kind of task. It is important to know about EndNote in details to lessen difficulties while writing a technical paper. Hence, IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a workshop titled "EndNote: An Efficient Assistant for Paper Publication" on January 13, 2017.
Engineering student often has to write a thesis paper and sometimes other technical papers. Adding references while maintaining the formatting and numbering is quite time consuming and really challenging. Using EndNote makes it easier to add the references while maintaining the format guideline. It helps writer to cite large number of references without repetition. Also, the practice of adding references through citation software is beneficial to future authors of research articles.
