This project provides a LaTeX document class suitable for writing academic dissertations and thesis according to the formatting rules established by the Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Graduate Studies and Research in Engineering (COPPE/UFRJ).
The 'coppe' class contains a minimalist set of macro commands which allows its users to create the required textual elements following the COPPE/UFRJ dissertation/thesis guidelines. Among these elements, there are a front cover, a title page, cataloging details, native and foreign languages abstracts, table of contents, and list of bibliographic references.
Although it is tied to the COPPE/UFRJ guidelines, it can be easily ported to other institutions.
This version follows the document:
