We provide a $latex$ class, which you may (no, should!) use when writing your thesis.
Download $\LaTeX$ Layout
A point about formatting. You need not use $\LaTeX$. However, if a student/candidate in Informatics delivers a thesis in a layout that is significantly worse than what TeX / LaTeX has been achieving since 40 years now, then s/he needs to explain that to me. (Remember: Science is all about improving on existing results!) This is particularly true for bibliographies that BibTeX would produce for you as a bibliography has to be, without any further effort – well, provided that you classify correctly the pieces of literature that you cite and that you follow the error and warning messages that BibTeX would deliver you for free.
