\tableofcontents


My headings are as follows: Intro,Lit Review,Methodology,Conclusion.

Does anyone have any idea how to remedy this?

This is the skeleton of the template with content removed:

The declaration in the report:

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Mike Renfro Dec 7 '14 at 16:38
• To be more explicit, there's nothing in the code you posted that indicates what's going wrong. A simple test would be to replace whatever template you're likely using with \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \tableofcontents \section{Project Introduction} ... \end{document}. That will almost certainly work, indicating a problem in your template or preamble. – Mike Renfro Dec 7 '14 at 16:40
• Note that you must compile twice to see the entries in the ToC. If you only compile once - or if you remove generated files between compilations - the ToC will be empty. – cfr Dec 7 '14 at 16:55
• I compiled twice but the contents of the table is still just the title of my report. I'll re edit my question to include the above revisions. – Brian J Dec 7 '14 at 17:51
• @cfr using llncs class you could run latex 1000 times and still have truncated table of content. It's a feature:-0 – David Carlisle Dec 7 '14 at 23:05

the llncs class has lots of interesting feature, unless publishing in LLNCS, it's probably not really the class I would choose.

Here it sets

  \setcounter{tocdepth}{0}


so you might want to add

  \setcounter{tocdepth}{3}


• I tried the above solution by adding the lie \setcounter{tocdepth}{3} under the line that declares the table of contents. But the table stays the same, only show the report title as a heading. – Brian J Dec 7 '14 at 23:43
• @BrianJ why add it there after the truncated table of contents has already been printed? Put it before \begin{document} as in the answer posted above. – David Carlisle Dec 7 '14 at 23:52
