See the Changelog for more information on the latest changes.

The latest LaTeX Template (v2.2 - 22 Februar 2018) can also be downloaded from CTAN packages and the JACoW repository, hosted by Github. It is also available from within Overleaf.

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 2013, MiKTeX2.9, proTeXt, or MacTeX) as a number of LaTeX packages are included in any current TeX system. The jacow.cls class file loads the following packages:

booktabs, caption, cite, cmap, csquotes, enumitem, etoolbox, fix-cm, fixltx2e, fontenc, footmisc, geometry, graphicx, ifluatex, ifxetex, lmodern, microtype, newtxmath, siunitx, sttools, textcase, textcomp, tgtermes, unicode-math, url, xcolor.

If BibLaTeX will be used, the biblatex package will be loaded too.

The new JACoW class (v2.2) is adapted to the use of BibLaTeX.

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

\documentclass[a4paper/letterpaper,
% boxit, % check whether paper is inside correct margins
biblatex, % biblatex is used
keeplastbox, % flushend option: not to un-indent last line in References
% nospread, % flushend option: do not fill with whitespace to balance columns
% hyphens, % allow \url to hyphenate at "-" (hyphens)
% xetex, % use XeLaTeX to process the file
% luatex, % use LuaLaTeX to process the file
]{jacow}

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)
