What is this?

A LaTeX (and MS Word) template for writing a short proposal to request accounts on Superior, Michigan Tech's shared research computing infrastructure.

Contents

  • MichiganTech.cls
  • superior_proposal.tex
  • superior_proposal.bib
  • superior_proposal.pdf
  • superior_proposal.docx
  • Images/MichiganTech.eps
  • Images/image_01.eps
  • Images/image_02.eps
  • Images/image_03.eps
  • Images/graph_01.dat
  • Images/graph_01.eps
  • Images/graph_01.gnu
  • Images/graph_01.jpg
  • Makefile

What should one do?

If you are LaTeX user:

  1. There is no need to edit MichiganTech.cls or the Makefile

  2. Place all graphics in Images folder

  3. Fill in appropriate details in superior_proposal.tex and superior_proposal.bib

  4. Run

    A. LaTeX twice on superior_proposal (PDFLaTeX if images are JPG or PDF)

    B. BibTex once on superior_proposal

    C. LaTeX twice on superior_proposal (PDFLaTeX if images are JPG or PDF)

    D. Convert the DVI to Postscript and convert the Postscript to PDF

  5. In lieu of steps in #4, you may just run make on a linux machine

  6. Rename superior_proposal.pdf as superior_proposal-john.pdf, replacing john with your own Michigan Tech ISO username, and email it to Dr. Warren Perger (wfp@mtu.edu)

If you are a MS Word user:

  1. Fill in appropriate details in superior_proposal.docx

  2. Rename superior_proposal.docx as superior_proposal-john.docx, replacing john with your own Michigan Tech ISO username, and email it to Dr. Warren Perger (wfp@mtu.edu)

What if you are working on multiple projects?

Only one proposal will suffice. Just be sure to indicate different projects and a brief description (few sentences) about each one of them.
