I'm currently preparing a paper for a conference and I'm struggling a bit to stay within the page limit imposed by the Latex layout of this conference. I'm trying to make some extra space for my content without having to use any Latex related tricks (like reducing margin sizes, font sizes, etc...) as this would probably just annoy the reviewers.
Instead, I'm trying to reduce the size of the references by removing unnecessary contents. However, the question is: What is actually unnecessary?
I consider the following to be essential:
- Name(s) of the author(s)
- Title of publication
- Date of publication
- Journal or conference of the publication
- Page number if the publication was published in a book or proceedings volumes
But what about additional information like DOIs, keywords, abstracts, etc...? Could I safely remove those items to save space?
Thank you very much for your input.
