I am trying to create a table in the IEEE conference paper that I am writing. The table is after two 2 para but when I typeset, it goes in the top the colum! I cant understand why this is happening. I am writing this like below:

text.....
text...
text...

\begin{table}[!t]
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.3}
\caption{A Simple Example Table}
\label{table_example}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{c||c}
\hline
\bfseries First & \bfseries Next\\
\hline\hline
1.0 & 2.0\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

text...

But the table goes above the text! Also, there should be two lines like:

       Table 1
A SIMPLE EXAMPLE TABLE

but for my case it prints in a single line. Can anyone help please?

You should consider not changing any of the layout when submitting a paper. If tables should float to the top based on the conference paper class, then so-be-it.

However, you can force the floating behaviour of the table environment to stop based on the following two approaches:

  1. Use the float package and the accompanying [H] float specifier.

    \usepackage{float}
    
    ...
    
    \begin{table}[H]
      \caption{A Simple Example Table}
      ...
    \end{table}
    

    If this is your choice, consider reading:

  2. Manually set a block that contains the table:

    \usepackage{capt-of}
    
    ...
    
    \noindent
    \begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
      \addvspace{\floatsep}% https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/36362/5764
    
      \captionof{table}{A Simple Example Table}
      ...
    
      \addvspace{\floatsep}%
    \end{minipage}
    
  • thanks for the answer. Can u please give a solution about the title issue. why its typesetting in one line instead of two lines as it shows in the demo IEEE paper?! thanks again. – jhon_wick Sep 1 '15 at 2:15
  • @dont_give_up: You may be using a specific option with the \documentclass[..]{ieeetran}. – Werner Sep 1 '15 at 2:15
