Using a template is mandatory!

      ▸ Polytechnique does not provide an APA style in French for LaTeX, so we recommend that you use the IEEE style in French, which is included in this template.
      ▸ This template is not compatible with the subcaption package. Use subfigure (see 1 and 2).

          ▸ Replace the old IEEEtran-francais.bst and MemoireThese.sty files with the new ones;
          ▸ Modify the definition of the jury in 0-Definitions_Etudiant.tex according to the new template;
