[Tex/LaTex] Bibtex: two months with dates


I would like to insert the dates of a conference into my bibtex-file. The conference took place in the period 29. november and 2. december. I tried the following, but with a not very satisfactory result:


Can someone help me to get proper dates?

Best Answer

The month field should store the month when the book or journal number was published, which is almost surely not the date the conference took place.

That date interval is part of the title of the book; with scholar.google.com I got this BibTeX entry

  title={Electricity price forecasting based on GARCH model in deregulated market},
  author={Hua, Zheng and Li, Xie and Li-zi, Zhang},
  booktitle={Power Engineering Conference, 2005. IPEC 2005. The 7th International},

that's how IEEE advertises it, see this link.

You might add

month={29 }#nov#{--2 }#dec

or more simply


but it would be misusing the field.
