I've been struggling trying to format my references for a paper which needs to follow the LNCS guidelines. They use to provide a .bst file which formats the references exactly as they require, but the only issue is that the references are sorted in alphabetical order, and now it seems they require them sorted in order of appearance. Is there any way of tuning the .bst in order to get the references sorted in order of appearance? Anyone had the same problem?
Here the template (including the .bst) I am using: ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip
