Better citations

Conferences typically have different citation styles. Personally I prefer a citation with author names and year, as the names can sometimes give indications of the paper content. For this citation style, the LaTex package natbib is a must.

I find this command simple yet most useful: \citep[see][chap 2]{nguyen2014} which yields (see Nguyen et al., 2014, chap 2). As a mnemonic, is for parenthetical. To provide citations without the parentheses, use \citet where t is for textual.
