See the Changelog and the CTAN README file for more information on the latest changes.

The LaTeX Template (v2.4 - 01 April 2019) can also be downloaded from CTAN packages and the JACoW repository, hosted by Github. It is also available from within Overleaf.

Currently the newest version of jacow.cls is available for testing:

  • v2.15   (Aug 2022) BibLaTeX macros optimized for better formatting than standard ieeetran; places period/fullstop in front of DOI; DOI now on line by its own when remaining space not suffient (thanks to Zhichu)

Authors using the template for the first time might also wish to view the section on Using LaTeX.

Please make sure to use a modern TeX system (at least TeX Live 2022, MiKTeX21.x, or MacTeX) as a number of LaTeX packages are included in any current TeX system.

JACoW class files (since v2.2) are adapted to the use of BibLaTeX.

The options for the class file in the \documentclass command should have the biblatex option specified.

% boxit, % check whether paper is inside correct margins
biblatex, % biblatex is used
% hyphens, % allow \url to hyphenate at "-" (hyphens)
% xetex, % use XeLaTeX to process the file
% luatex, % use LuaLaTeX to process the file

Quotation marks with BibLaTeX

The default bahaviour in BibLaTeX is for the comma or period to be put inside the quotation mark, as in American English. In British English, however, the rule is to place the comma or period outside the quotation mark.

To change this behaviour in BibLaTeX from the default US English to British English, the following command should be declared in your TeX file: \DefineBibliographyExtras{american}{\stdpunctuation} (provided by Thorsten Lamb)
