Do's and Don'ts
\documentclass[runningheads, envcountsame, a4paper] and only these options; some packages modify paper to letter if a4 is not specified.
- For Acknowledge please use \section*.
- Use Algorithm2e for listings of algorithms.
- Use as few .tex files as possible, a single file is best, name it main.tex, it helps the assembling task.
- In \authors use \and as separator between authors names.
- Use \toctitle and \tocauthors, they
are important fields defining your paper in the proceedings Table Of Contents.
- For \tocauthors use ~ between first name and name to avoid a break line inside author's names.
- Use \fnmsep (i.e. footnote mark separator) to separate \thanks by \inst.
- British authors should use UK to avoid too many variations such as U.K. or England.
