I'm planning to submit a paper to an IEEE conference. On their website they mention that the paper should be "formatted according to the standard IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style guide". Which latex header should be used in this case?




  • Do they provide a style guide for you to download? – Solar Mike Mar 16 '18 at 11:13
  • No. They only have a link to the IEEE's latex templates page – Andrei Mar 16 '18 at 12:09
  • Only the PC chair can definitively answer this question, but in my experience, most conferences don't care about the precise format of the submission, provided it fits within the stated page limits. – JeffE Mar 16 '18 at 15:40

You should use \documentclass[conference,compsoc]{IEEEtran} as stated in the How To (here). You may find it helpful to follow the bare_ conf_compsoc.tex that is inside the zip file with the templates (here).

Extra information

  • Take special attention if you should send it in draft mode or not. And also if it should be blind.
  • Once accepted you have to include the DOI and copyright information.
  • You will also have to submit the final PDF to a signing website (instructions will be sent)
  • Finally, the submission process will provide a pre IEEExplore publication copy of your text you MUST download it because this is the version that you are authorized to publish on your own website or ResearchGate.
