Created by Torsten Moeller (firstname.lastname@example.org), April 6 2004 modified by Steven Bergner and Torsten Moeller, June 30 2006 modified by James Peltier and Torsten Moeller, March 28, 2007 modified by Bernhard Finkbeiner, July 5, 2010 modified by Tobias Isenberg, January 2016 modified by Filip Sadlo, March 2016 modified by Tobias Isenberg, July 2016 This distribution provides a document class for formatting papers according to the specifications for submission to conferences sponsored by the IEEE Visualization & Graphics Technical Committee (VGTC). Conferences that use the 'journal' document option: - IEEE Visualization Conference (VIS, incl. InfoVis, SciVis, VAST) - IEEE Virtual Reality (VR) - IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) It contains 13 files/directories: README - this file diamondrule.eps - abstract and body separator diamondrule.pdf - its PDF version vgtc.cls - the VGTC class file, which should be placed, somewhere in the TeX search path (or in the local directory) template.tex - an example paper template.bib - a small bibliography file used by the example template.pdf - an example proper pdf output in default journal mode abbrv-doi*.bst - four different versions to generate the bibliography including DOI output, with and without hyperref support, with and without narrow rendering of DOIs makefile - makefile including bibtex compilation and proper PDF generation pictures/ - subdirectory with sample images, both in EPS and in direct pixel/vector format Usage ===== The template can be used as such (using the established LaTeX environments) by calling pdfLaTeX or LaTex. For Windows-based LaTeX installations you can use, for example, the environment provided by http://www.texniccenter.org/ along with MikTeX (http://miktex.org/). For Uinux-based installations, please use your favorite LaTeX distribution and editing environment or use the makefile following the instructions below. Use of the Makefile =================== Prior to "building" a paper please be sure to run make clean This will ensure that the paper is built cleanly each and every time. We suggest to run this command before each new compilation. To compile the example, run make or manually, if the makefile does not work for you latex template bibtex template latex template latex template If you run 'make' for the first time, a successful compilation will create a file called 'template.pdf'. Please make sure, that its layout is identical to the file 'template-journal.pdf' provided with this package. The included makefile also allows you to run each step of the process manually. Below are a list of available options that may be passed to make "make clean" removes all files that can be generated automatically. "make gs7" This will perform all functions to build a proper paper using GhostScript 7. "make gs8" This will perform all functions to build a proper paper using GhostScript 8. "make dvi" This will process the .tex file and produce a DVI output file. This step may process the .tex file several times to process all references and citations. "make ps" This will process the .tex file and the DVI output and convert it to a PostScript file. "make pdf" This will process the .tex file using pdfTeX/pdflatex to produce a PDF file directly (not using a DVI and PostScript file). Please make sure that all fonts are embedded. You can use pdffonts my_document.pdf to check if they are. It is standard in all modern latex distributions. If you use eps figures (e.g. R or gnuplot figures) which you convert to PDF using epstopdf, do the following: Use GL_OPTIONS, a global environment variable for ghostscript: export GS_OPTIONS="-dEmbedAllFonts=true -dPDFSETTINGS=/printer" # and run epstopdf myfile.eps See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=411651 for the origin of this solution. If you have problems with the makefile please notify us with the output of the errors produced when running make and we will work to figure out the resolution. To produce proper pdf output, please use: dvips -t letter -Pdownload35 -Ppdf -G0 template.dvi -o template.ps The "-Ppdf" and "-G0" flags should be specified in that order; reversing them does not work, and will result in unacceptable results. The following information is an exerpt from the ACM SIGGRAPH Conference / Symposium / Workshop Content Formatting Instructions which can be found here. http://www.siggraph.org/publications/instructions/author-instructions.pdf If you are using version 7.x of GhostScript, please use the following method of invoking ‘ps2pdf,’ in order to embed all typefaces and ensure that images are not downsampled or subsampled in the PDF creation process: ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 -dMaxSubsetPct=100 \ -dSubsetFonts=true -dEmbedAllFonts=true \ -dAutoFilterColorImages=false -dAutoFilterGrayImages=false \ -dColorImageFilter=/FlateEncode -dGrayImageFilter=/FlateEncode \ -dMonoImageFilter=/FlateEncode template.ps template.pdf If you are using version 8.x of GhostScript, please use this method in place of the example above: ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dCompatibilityLevel=1.3 \ -dAutoFilterColorImages=false -dAutoFilterGrayImages=false \ -dColorImageFilter=/FlateEncode -dGrayImageFilter=/FlateEncode \ -dMonoImageFilter=/FlateEncode template.ps template.pdf This has been incorporated into the makefile and should no longer be needed unless you are building the PDF file manually.
