I am using IEEEtran latex class 2-column format for conference. It gives me spacing between paragraphs which I want to take off.

I got the template from this link.


Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Off-topic: Please use ieeeconf for conferences. Recently, every conference provides a copy of the custom ieeeconf.cls otherwise you can download it from IEEE or CTAN – percusse Aug 24 '13 at 20:49
  • Please be a bit more specific about "spacing between paragraphs which I want to take off". Ideally, you would post a Minimum Working Example (MWE) that generates the problem behavior you're looking to fix. Incidentally, a quick check compiling a dummy-text document with either the IEEEconf or the IEEEtran document class doesn't reveal any unusual spacing issues. Hence the request for an MWE so that we can get a start on what's afflicting your document. – Mico Aug 24 '13 at 21:18

I met exactly the same problem using IEEEtran for two-columns conference paper. Downloading the latest version of IEEEtran.cls from CTAN and replacing the original one solved my problem.

The version of IEEEtran in the ZIP file is

%% IEEEtran.cls 2011/11/03 version V1.8 based on
%% IEEEtran.cls 2007/03/05 version V1.7a

and the counterpart in the CTAN is

%% IEEEtran.cls 2012/12/27 version V1.8

There are many (non)trivial changes between these two versions. Hope it also works for you.
