My recent question LaTeX template collection for scientific conferences has been put on hold for being too broad. Apparently, there has been a discussion about whether "big-list questions" (1, 2) are desired or should be avoided.
What I asked myself and probably should have asked first here, is:
- Does the question suit better to Tex SE or Academia SE?
- Whether it should be a community wiki like: The variance of peer-review types across research disciplines.
As to 1, I found that it is rather on the application side, i.e., it should be posted where academics discuss things. Regarding 2, I decided to just ask a regular question and see how it goes from there.
So here we are. (The question should be still available to read, right?) My goal is to provide LaTeX templates for conferences and make sure that work is not duplicated. Users can add answers where they specify a certain conference. Probably they wanted to submit something there and did not find a suitable template. They can discuss in comments whether a template is available on the web. They can update the answers and add the new information.
Can we do this on Academia SE? Or, alternatively, what would be your suggestions to accomplish this?
Edit: The collection idea has not really found supporters so far. What do you think about questions like "Is there a LaTeX template for the International Conference of Plum Pudding?" instead? Such questions could lead to answers like A1: "There is one on the website of the last conference, but with questionable quality" and/or A2: "I found a repository on github, here is the address.". Then, A2 could be voted up if users find it useful.
