# Defining the space between section number and section title

I am trying to define the spacing between the section name and section title in latex to get something like this . How can I do it?

Also how can I define the margin and all at the first page to get the margin of the title of the paper from the top followed by the authors like this.

• Perhaps \usepackage{cvpr}? I found a copy of cvpr.sty at pamitc.org/cvpr13/author_guidelines.php and it produces the style illustrated in your figure. – Dan Oct 15 '13 at 21:50

The distance is defined (in the standard classes and so those that load them) by \@seccntformat, whose usual definition is
\newcommand{\@seccntformat}[1]{\csname the#1\endcsname\quad}
