The EPTCS style files are maintained at
and are also available from
- the EPTCS LaTeX style file eptcs.cls: current version 1.7,
EPTCS bibliography style file eptcs.bst and three variants,
- the file example.tex with instructions for both, also serving
as an example template,
- and a bibliography file generic.bib that is called
Files produced with an older version of eptcs.cls will yield
the same output when typeset with the current version 1.7. (But files
produced conform the current instructions may not typeset at all with
older versions of eptcs.cls.)
Our LaTeX style file is a small variant of the article style.
The changes are:
Authors may not alter the font, fontsize, textarea and margins. They may
alter the other above design decisions only if this fits the paper
better. Major words in the title (all but articles, prepositions,
etc.) should be capitalised (unless this requirement is waived or
altered by volume editors).
Design decisions not governed by this style file, such as
whether nontrivial words in section headers are capitalised, are left
to the creativity of the authors.
- Hyperref package added
- Text area 16x22cm plus header .5in; A4 margins
2.11cm, 2.5cm, 2.5cm and 4.34cm;
US letter margins .48in, 1.10in, 1.10in and 1.36in.
- The font is times, with calligraphics displayed as French script
- Fontsize is 11pt
- Running heads: title left; authors right
- A somewhat different layout of title, authors and abstract
- Less empty space in lists
- A tighter bibliography (small font and less space between items)
- A footer on the titlepage indicating the status of the paper.
After processing at eptcs.org, the footer states in which volume of
EPTCS the paper is published, with year, page numbers and DOI.
- If the authors choose to invoke the option copyright, there
will a note saying that copyright is with the authors;
the authors may also dedicate the paper to the publicdomain.
- By means of the style-file option creativecommons the
authors may equip their paper with a
that allows everyone to copy, distribute, display, and perform
their copyrighted work and derivative works based upon it, but
only if they give credit the way you request.
By invoking the additional style-file option noderivs you let
others copy, distribute, display, and perform only verbatim
copies of your work, but not derivative works based upon it.
Alternatively, the sharealike option allows others to distribute
derivative works only under a license identical to the license
that governs your work.
Finally, you can invoke the option noncommercial that let
others copy, distribute, display, and perform your work and
derivative works based upon it for noncommercial purposes only.
Sensible combinations of those options work as well.
