Edit a paper with LNCS format in Latex

Some paper may require LNCS format. You can download the package from http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. Here I use llncs2e.zip and the sample file typeinst.zip.

You can import your latex file into the sample file "typeinst.tex". Notice that if your figures include subfigure, you need to add three packages:

\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\usepackage{subfig}

If it has some equations, add:

\usepackage[cmex10]{amsmath,mathtools}
\usepackage{mdwmath}

If it includes algorithm, add:

\usepackage{algorithm}
\usepackage{algorithmic}

Then, copy two files "llncs.cls" and "splncs.bst" (can also choose "splncs_srt.bst" or "splncs03.bst") from llncs2e folder to typeinst.

If the paper has some references generated by XXXX.bib file, then at the end of the paper, add:

\bibliographystyle{splncs}
\bibliography{XXXX}

After finish the editing, we just follow the previous tutorial (http://itantenna.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/compile-latex-file-with-eps-figures.html) to compile the latex file.

  1. Thank you very much for your help. I finally knew how to use subcaption without getting strange errors.
