comment Indentation text at beamer
Including large blocks of text is a bad way to create a presentation, and one could argue that this is part of beamer's way of incentivizing you not to do that.

comment Conference contributions as references
In my field not all conferences have proceedings, and those that do typically publish the proceedings well after the conference (perhaps a year later).

comment Explain the Kile LaTeX editor feature that deletes my root file text
FWIW I'll confirm that Kile does this for all LaTeX environments - or more precisely, all corresponding pairs of \begin{x} and \end{y}, even if they don't constitute a valid LaTeX environment.

comment Physics EMF symbol in LaTeX
@hftf well, now you have, or at least you know someone who has. ;-) I guess there must be some variation between sources, but pretty much every time I remember seeing it, the symbol seems like an exact match to the calligraphic E.

comment Physics EMF symbol in LaTeX
@hftf I'm not sure this really should be a duplicate, because the symbol used for EMF is \mathcal{E} (I've written it many times, I know), but the other question's poster specifically says that is not the symbol they're looking for.

comment All letters upright in math mode (equivalent to \rm)
@a_guest semantically speaking, the right thing to do is to put only the subscripts in upright font, because the subscripts are text. But the main letters (A, B, C) are variables and would remain in math (italic) font.

comment Vectors and indices
You could also consider r_i^2, since the square of a vector is the square of its magnitude (assuming you define magnitude using the L2 norm, as is typical). This is the most common way to write squared vectors in many fields of physics. If you want to preserve the vector notation, consider setting vectors in bold instead of using arrows.

@Harry it's possible you might have nothing to lose by using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX for this particular document. See this question‌​.

comment Show only main part of Tikz diagram and outliers via extension
For what it's worth, cutting out part of the axis is considered to be bad presentation in many cases. It distorts the relative magnitudes of the different points on your graph, so e.g. it could make the difference between 75 and 80 look much more significant than it really is. But whether this is the case with your graph depends on the interpretation of your data.
