I am trying to create the following table (drafted in Excel) in my manuscript. enter image description here

I am working with two conferences' templates (IEEE & SPLNCS), so I organize my work like so:

├── IEEEtran.cls
├── llncs.cls
├── mainIEEE.tex
├── mainLNCS.tex
├── Introdoction.tex
└── # ... other sections' tex

So that I can navigate between mainEEE.tex and mainLNCS.tex to compile to conference's format.

However, I have difficulty aligning this table to fit with the column of these tamplates (other tables in my doc work fine).

MWE: IEEEtran.cls and llncs.cls

%%%  Introduction.tex
\section{Introduction}

\lipsum[1]

\begin{table}[ht]
    \caption{Some results}
    \label{tab:my_label}
    \centering
    \begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{l|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|} 
    \toprule
     Mode  & \multicolumn{5}{l|}{Precision} & \multicolumn{5}{l|}{Recall} & \multicolumn{5}{l}{F1\-score} \\
     \cline{2-15}
     & RF & RF-SMOTEd & AdaBoost & SMOTEBoost & DECOC & RF & RF-SMOTEd & AdaBoost & SMOTEBoost & DECOC & RF & RF-SMOTEd & AdaBoost & SMOTEBoost & DECOC \\
     \midrule
     cat &1&2&3&4&5 &1&2&3&4&5 &1&2&3&4&5\\
    \bottomrule
    \end{tabularx}

    First, tabularx is only useful if you have X columns. Otherwise it is the same as a plain tabular. Second, there is no way you are going to fit that table on a page, much less one column, and still be legible.. I suggest you turn it into three sequential tabulars. Or rotate the headings.

  • change to sequetial tabular? Can you add details to this please (or an answer)?

    3 tabulars, possibly in 3 tables [ht] with one caption. I would rather try the rotated headers approach. BTW, booktabs does not like vertical lines in tables. Commented Mar 2, 2023 at 18:04

This shows how to use rotated headers. Note the use of tabular* and \extracolsep to precisely fit the column.

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1]

\begin{table}[ht]
    \caption{Some results}
    \label{tab:my_label}
    %\centering
    \tabcolsep=0pt
    \begin{tabular*}{\linewidth}{@{\extracolsep{0pt plus 1fil}}lccccccccccccccc}
    \toprule
     Mode  & \multicolumn{5}{l}{Precision} & \multicolumn{5}{l}{Recall} & \multicolumn{5}{l}{F1\-score} \\
     \midrule
     & \rotatebox{90}{RF} & \rotatebox{90}{RF-SMOTEd} & \rotatebox{90}{AdaBoost} & 
      \rotatebox{90}{SMOTEBoost} & \rotatebox{90}{DECOC} & \rotatebox{90}{RF} &
      \rotatebox{90}{RF-SMOTEd} & \rotatebox{90}{AdaBoost} & \rotatebox{90}{SMOTEBoost} & 
      \rotatebox{90}{DECOC} & \rotatebox{90}{RF} & \rotatebox{90}{RF-SMOTEd} & 
      \rotatebox{90}{AdaBoost} & \rotatebox{90}{SMOTEBoost} & \rotatebox{90}{DECOC} \\
     \midrule
     cat &1&2&3&4&5 &1&2&3&4&5 &1&2&3&4&5\\
    \bottomrule
    \end{tabular*}
\end{table}

\lipsum[2-6]

  • It is not entirely clear, what is content of your table. Just one digit numbers= Or sime one letter symbol?

  • If above is the case, than you can rotate column headers as shown in @John Kormylo answer

  • As supplement to his answer here is suggestion which use tabularray package supported by rotating and makecell packages.

  • With - With ieeetran` document class:

\documentclass[runningheads]{llncs}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{rotating}
\usepackage{makecell}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{tabularray}

\renewcommand\theadfont{}
\begin{tblr}{hlines, vlines,
             colspec = { l *{15}{X[c]} },
             cell{2}{2-Z} = {cmd=\rothead}
             }

cat & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5     
        & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5     
            & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5                     \\
\end{tblr}
    \end{table}
\end{document}

  • With ieeetran document class:
\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts
%\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
% ...
\begin{tblr}{hlines, vlines,
             colspec = { l *{15}{X[c]} },
             colsep=3pt,    % <---
             cell{2}{2-Z} = {cmd=\rothead}
             }
% rest is the same as before
