IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy
Oakland 2010 Formatting Note

Astute authors have noticed some discrepancies between the originally specified formatting requirements and the IEEE template.

If you use the tempate with the default documentclass,

   \documentclass[10pt, conference, compsocconf]{IEEEtran}
it produces a document with a text width of 7.0in and column separation 0.25in, so the column widths are 3.375in wide (which is 1/8in wider than the originally specified column width). We have updated the formatting requirements to allow the extra 1/8in in the column width.

It is acceptable to use these wider columns in your submission, following the formatting of the provided IEEE tempate.

Sorry for the confusion on this.
