# Empty Last Page in IEEE Conference Format

I am writing a conference paper with a preamble like this.

\documentclass[conference, 10pt, letterpaper, twoside, twocolumn, final]{IEEEtran}


The conference has a page limit of five pages. After a lot of edits and scissor outs, I can finally fit it within the limit, but very tightly. I am at a condition where adding a single word will take it to the sixth page. The problem is when compiling (with Kile and TeX Live on Linux platform) the output produces an empty sixth page. How to get rid of it?

• Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 May 28 '14 at 6:28
• So page 6 is empty and you just want to exclude it? – Werner May 28 '14 at 6:42
• Yes. I just want to exclude page 6. I could do it in the PDF itself, but for the conference I will have to give the tex file from which they will compile. I thought an MWE is not necessary since the problem is not with undesired output, but with a blank page. So the only working example can be my full tex file. – Della May 28 '14 at 7:03

\usepackage[-5]{pagesel}% http://ctan.org/pkg/pagesel

• @Barman: You've added \nofiles? Which CTAN documentation? – Werner May 29 '14 at 5:33
