How do I put the author picture in the picture frame box of a journal paper? I tried using this code but the picture wasn't placed in the box, it is outside the box. Here is the code:

Name ... was born in ... more text.
  • Hint, by indenting your code with four spaces, it gets put in a code block. :)

You're using the wrong biography environment. You need to use the IEEEbiography environment. Here is the correct code:

was born in ... on ... more text.

    In ieee.cls (as IEEE is in the title) of 2000/01/11 there's no IEEEbiography environment, but a biography environment with optional argument for the picture file name. I confirm your solution works with IEEEtran though, as the tag may lead to.

The question has also been posted on LaTeX-Community.org: IEEE.cls Template & Author Photo.

As I wrote there: the biography environment works without \includegraphics, and with square brackets, since the picture argument is optional:

  was born in  ... on ...
  • I tried doing this and it does not work. Do you have any other suggestions to get this working.

  • @user62089 Perhaps post a new question with details. "does not work" isn't enough, since for me it does. Your situation might be something different.

This worked for me (May 2016):

{John Smith}
received a B.S. and M.S. in blah blah blah...

I'm using the file ieeeconf.cls which begins

%% IEEEtran.cls 2002/11/18 version V1.6b
%% ...

I think you can download it here.

    Isn't that the same answer as the one by nickb, just with more spaces?

  • I needed to replace IEEEbiography with biography as Stefan noted. Also, I thought it would be helpful to include a link to the cls file in question. May 13 '16 at 17:16
