LaTex and IEEE garden


Package: CTAN: Package IEEEtran

The .zip

  • The .pdf in the .zip is REALLY WELL WRITTEN and answers most questions I unsuccessfully tried to google!
  • bare_conf.tex etc. are too very helpful!

LaTex in general

Including other .tex files

TL;DR use \input that is basically equivalent to inserting the .tex text as-is. \include does weird stuff with (new)pages.

When should I use \input vs. \include? - TeX - LaTeX Stack Exchange

Referencing sections


This was generated by pandoc:
\subsubsection{Problem description}\label{problem-description}}

% ...

Link - Findings: \ref{problem-description}\\ 
No link - Findings: \ref*{problem-description}\\

Not quite sure about these:
%Findings: \hyperref[problem-description]{link text}\\
%indings: \hyperref[problem-description]{link text: \ref*{findings}}\\

IEEE style

According to the style manual1,

In-text references to text sections are written: “in Section II” or “in Section II-A” or “in Section II-A1.”

(which is how it’s generated with the latex code above)

Capitalize the word “Section.” Do not use the word “Subsection”; use “Section” and write out the complete citation.


Converting with pandoc

When converting with pandoc ([[garden/it/221221-1300 pandoc standalone option]]), it added this line which removed all sections’ etc. numbers:



There’s an IEEE Editorial Style Manual1
