The vast majority of IEEE SA Working Groups work in either Adobe FrameMaker® or Microsoft Word®. We try our best to make our templates usable by people with different skill levels and hope the provided resources are instructive. For help navigating IEEE SA templates, please contact the editorial team at [email protected].
