License type: lppl Announcement text:
The confproc package is a LaTeX document-class for building conference proceedings. Version 0.4e enhances the package and fixes several issues: - package: - redefine \thebibliography to avoid inserting a phantom item to set the introductory paragraph (thanks to Will Robertson); - redefine \frontmatter, \mainmatter, \backmatter, \tableofcontents, etc, to take into acount layout and formatting issues; - page layout defined with the geometry package (thanks to Will Robertson) - bug correction: have \hypersetup evaluated only at the document beginning (then taking into account the user changes in the PDF metadata); - remove formatting from footer and name-like commands: author, title, etc. (thanks to Will Robertson); - use mathptmx package instead of times package, and nth package instead of \textsuperscript command (thanks to Will Robertson); - allows to insert 1-page long papers (did not work in v0.3 and previous); - instead of replacing each paper’s last page by the list of its bibliography items, print them on top of the header of the last page; - documentation: changes history re-organized using macro environment - example updated: - to account for those changes (shorter code) - .bib files included (were missing in v0.3)!

confproc – A set of tools for generating conference proceedings

The confproc collection comprises a class, a style, and some scripts for generating conference proceedings. It derives from scripts written for the DAFx-06 conference proceedings, largely based on the pdfpages package for including the proceedings papers and the hyperref package for creating a proper table of contents, bookmarks and general bibliography back-references. Confproc also uses many other packages for fine tuning of the table of contents, bibliography and index of authors. The added value of the class resides in its time-saving aspects when designing conference proceedings.
