CPG approved standard

CPG, in a meeting in June/2007, has resolved that the theses and dissertation shall abide to the standardized format defined by it.

A LaTeX model to ease adherence was created in 2007 and subsequently updated. The model is available in PDF using two types of bibliographical references that may be chosen according to the students’ and his/her tutor’s will: alpha and plannait.
