This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

  • What documentclass are you using? \subsection* would not usually insert punctuation after the title at all... – Ulrich Schwarz Jan 27 '12 at 18:45
  • actually it is \subsubsection, sorry for the mistake. for \subsection it's fine. And I am using \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran} – Aditya Kumar Jan 27 '12 at 18:53

The following minimal example produces what you're after, modifying the "punctuation" of IEEEtran from : to ):

enter image description here

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}% http://ctan.org/pkg/ieeetran
\renewcommand{\@IEEEsectpunct}{)\ \,}% Modified from {:\ \,}
\section{A section}
\subsection{A subsection}

You could, of course, also just use a list environment to obtain the same numbering...
