  Confproc is a LaTeX2e package providing a new document-class together
  with various tools (Perl and Unix/bash scripts) for building conference
  proceedings, or concatenating any set of PDFs with a table of contents,
  index, bookmarks and general bibliography. The LaTeX2e class is mainly
  based on the 'pdfpages' package for PDF papers inclusion, and the
  'hyperref' package for creating proper links, bookmarks and general
  bibliography back references. It also uses many other packages for fine
  tuning the table of contents, bibliography and  index of authors.
  Current version 0.8 is the previous 0.7 major update with key-value option
  management, that has now been tested with TeXLive 2011.
  The added value of this class is in the time saved to quickly design
  conference proceedings or any collection of PDFs.

Read me:
  readme.txt          This file (do: pdflatex confproc.dtx)

  pdflatex confproc.dtx   Creates docstrip installation file
                          confproc.ins and this file
  pdflatex confproc.ins   Creates 'confproc.cls' class file, example
                          files, scripts and documentation drive 'confproc.drv'

  Docstrip options available:
    package - to produce a (LaTeX2e) class file (.cls)
    driver  - to produce a driver file to print the documentation
    example - to produce an example file, which demonstrates the
              possibilities of the package

  Move confproc.cls into a directory searched by LaTeX.
  pdflatex confproc.dtx  Creates the (LaTeX2e) documentation.

  Edit confproc.drv   and customize the documentation to your wishes.
  LaTeX confproc.drv  Generates customized documentation.
        Depending on your customization you will have to run
            makeindex confproc.idx -s gind.ist -o confproc.ind
            makeindex confproc.glo -s gglo.ist -o confproc.gls
  pdfLaTeX example*.tex   Demonstrate the possibilities of this package.

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.
