## Bibliography Starts on a New Page

The natbib package in LATEX checks to see whether the chapter command is defined. If so it decides to use that for the bibliography headings. This will generally place the bibliography on a new page, which is what you would expect for a book. However, the llncs LATEX document class does define the chapter command, but is used generally for writing articles! A simple solution is to tell natbib to use section rather than chapter for the bibliography:

 \usepackage{natbib} \makeatletter \renewcommand\bibsection% { \section*{\refname \@mkboth{\MakeUppercase{\refname}}{\MakeUppercase{\refname}}} } \makeatother
