All reports are to be prepared in the two-column IEEE transactions format.
For LaTeX users, to install the IEEE style and bibliography style files (IF THEY ARE NOT ALREADY PRESENT IN YOUR SYSTEM - CHECK BEFORE PROCEEDING), download the following two archived directories
and extract and install them in the proper locations for your particular installation of LaTeX.
Under macOS (or earlier versions of OS X), users of MacTeX / TeXShop should open a terminal window, change directory to the location where you have downloaded the above two files, and issue the following UNIX commands
# cp -pr IEEEtran /usr/local/texlive/YYYY/texmf-dist/tex/latex/IEEEtran
# cp -pr IEEEtranBST /usr/local/texlive/YYYY/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/IEEEtran
where YYYY indicates the year of your current texlive installation.
If you receive a response indicating that you do not have permissions to do this, preceed the above command with "sudo" and enter your password when prompted (note that you must be an administrator on your machine to do this).
For users new to LaTeX, a "How To Guide" prepared and presented by Paul Romanczyk may serve as a great starting point.
