Here is an MWE that produces "Missing \cr inserted" error when savetrees is used with IEEEtran. When savetrees is removed, the error goes away. Does anybody know why this happens and how to fix this?

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage[subtle]{savetrees}

\begin{document}

\title{My Title}
\author{Authors}
\maketitle

\section{Introduction}
My Introduction

\end{document}

    just don't use savetrees is the canonical answer, the aims seem mutually incompatible, IEEEtran is trying to enforce the house style of IEEE journals and savetrees is trying to change the style Commented Mar 3, 2020 at 15:20

The recommendation here must be not to use savetrees as the only reason to use a Journal supplied class such as IEEEtrans is to enforce the journal house style and the intention of the savetrees package is explicitly to change the layout and styling to use a more compact form so by design it is working against the intention of the class file.

That said if you use the title option it uses a different redefinition of the title layout which seems to avoid an error here.

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

\usepackage[subtle,title]{savetrees}

\begin{document}

\title{My Title}
\author{Authors}

\maketitle

\section{Introduction}
My Introduction

\end{document}
