Conference Proceedings in BibTex

  1. May 17, 2013 #1
    I'm unsure about the appropriate location for this thread, so please move this topic, if necessary.

    I'm trying to add conference proceedings to my BibTex database, but I can't manage to get it working.

    If I use @CONFERENCE or @INPROCEEDINGS, the title of the paper will not be italicized and capitalization is lost in the final document and the order of authors is changed into, what appears to me, a random order.

    If I use @PROCEEDINGS, the name of the authors are hidden.

    In all three cases I put the name and edition of the conference in Publisher.

    What I want is the following:
    - Name of authors
    - Title in italics
    - Name and edition of conference
    - Year

    That is under the control of the bibliography style (.bst file).

    I don't know if you are being ironic, so I'll expand on my answer.

    In a sense, it doesn't matter what entry type you choose if the bibliography style won't give you what you want.

    You can check out http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/custom-bib/ if you want to make your own.

    No, I was being sincere. I've already seen the styles come by and now I know what to do to solve my problem. Thanks.
