Grace Hopper latex template

Strangely (to me, anyhow), the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing only provided me with Microsoft Word templates rather than LaTeX ones. Most academic conferences I've attended provide both (or only LaTeX), and I greatly prefer to lay things out in LaTeX for reasons too numerous to list.

So just in case anyone else is looking for it, here's a brief "template" using the measurements I got out of the .doc file. Feel free to use and edit as necessary.


\documentclass[10pt,letterpaper,times]{article}
\usepackage[left=1.91cm,right=1.91cm,top=1.91cm,bottom=2.54cm]{geometry}
\usepackage{times}
\usepackage{multicol}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\titleformat{\section}{\bfseries}{\thesection}{1em}{}
\setlength{\columnsep}{1.02cm}
\renewcommand{\thesection}{\arabic{section}.}

\pagestyle{empty}
