#CEURWS publishes CEURART paper style

CEUR-WS proudly announces its own LaTeX article style CEURART. The style was created by our team member Dmitry Kulyabov. The style is available in both one- and two-column variants. Special attention was given to indicate the Creative Commons CC-BY license dedication and the correct generation of metadata in the PDF generated from LaTeX. The generated PDF is compliant to PDF/A 1.5.

The style is available via OVERLEAF at


You also find sample PDFs using the CEURART style at



You can clone this OVERLEAF template via “Open as Template” to create your own paper in the CEURART style. Workshop organizers are welcome to create a pre-configured set of files, where for example the reference to the workshop in the footnote is set.

You can also download the sources to a local directory and use your own LaTeX environment to write your paper. Note that you need a recent LaTeX version to process the CEURART style.

Addendum: We also supply DOCX and ODT templates of the CEURART style at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/. The DOCX files were created with Word 2013. If your Word 2019 cannot read them, please use the ODT variant instead or use LibreOffice (which is apparently more compatible to DOCX than Word 2019).

There are two variants. The 1-column variant is preferred for easier readability on screens. However,  workshop organizers may also use the 2-column variant, which may be easier to read when printed. Do not mix the two variants in one volume.

From January 1st, 2022,  onward, we demand that workshops/conferences publishing with CEUR-WS use the CEURART style. We hope you appreciate the new style and adopt it for future submissions!

Kind greetings, Manfred

    When using ceurart version 0.3.1 (the one currently in the Overleaf demo project), `\mathit` does not kern letters (for example in `\mathit{ff}`), while with other styles such as `article` the command typically does kern letters. Is there a recommended solution or a workaround?

    * Fixed:
    * Overleaf repo updated.

      Thank you! Version v0.3.3-pdflatex-math resolves the issue.

    I appreciate the style of the template! Looks good! Regarding the reference-list, does it follow a well-known standard or did you develop it from scratch? I tried to adapt several Citavi out of the box styles (IEEE, Springer Math Phys), however, I have not found a citation style that really nails it.

  4. Thanks, Achim! I believe, we follow mostly ACM wrt. citation style and other features. Dmitry knows more.

      Hello Manfred,
      Thanks for your help! It is ACM, in Citavi, the exact style name is “Applied Mathematics and Computation”. Best regards!

  5. Hi Achim, we use NATBIB:

    I tried your CEURART.zip with MikTex 2.9 and got this error:

    ! Package pdfx Error: No color profile sRGB_IEC61966-2-1_black_scaled.icc found to use for RGB screen colors..

    I also tried it with the latest MikTex 20.11 and got a similar error:

    !pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file libertinust1-mathex): Font libertinust1-mathex at 657 not found

    In both cases, some files are missing. I guess it is not going to work with MikTex at all. What is it supposed to work with? What are expectations about Latex tools that can used used for this package to work?
    I’ve used MikTex with at least the following templates: ACM, IEEE, Springer, Elsevier, AAAI. Never had problems with any of them. Please advise.

  7. Please, inform us whether the template must bear piсtograms instead of words “Email”, “ORCID” at the footnote. The word template downloaded from ceur-ws official site doesn’t contain such pictograms.
