I have prepared a paper using LLNCS class and splncs03 bibliography style. It seems the default behaviour of the style is to order references alphabetically. However, I need them to be listed based on their appearance order. Does anybody have a solution?

    If the journal style is alphabetical that is what you should do. Publishers set the rules for journals, not authors. – Joseph Wright Jun 24 '15 at 11:46

As Joseph Wright wrote, if alphabetic order is what Springer asks for, you should use it.

Having said that, you may get away with using an older version of their bibliography style, which you can find here: ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/splncs.bst

That one orders by appearance.
