DesignCon Conference Paper Tools for LaTeX and LyX
The DesignCon conference can be found here: http://www.designcon.com/
The LaTeX package and LyX layout can be found here: http://ctan.org/pkg/designcon
All of the files can be found here: http://ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/designcon
For LyX, you'll basically want to copy all of these files to a working directory named 'MyPaper'. Then you'll want to rename the DesignCon.lyx file to MyPaper.lyx or whatever you want. You will then edit this file, replacing the information in the predefined sections (you can change the names of these sections, delete them, or add new ones).
Here's what the final document produced looks like: http://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/designcon/designcon.pdf
You'll want to follow make sure in the document settings that you are using the designcon layout. You'll need to select it locally until it gets included in the LyX distribution. This means you'll need a copy of the designcon.layout file provided in your directory along with your paper.
All of the customizations can be found in the LyX environments and the custom insets where all of this has been customized to restrict your formatting capability, enter arguments for LaTeX macros, and cross-reference claims, figures, and drawing element annotations.
Have fun writing your paper in LyX designcon
