What is the recommended citation style for use with CS (and related) publications?
I tried looking at submissions at http://arxiv.org/archive/cs but all of them seem to use different citation styles.
I'm doing an academic project and I'm writing a project report for the same. So, is there a (possibly 'standard') citation style that is preferred over other citation styles (such as those listed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_Wikipedia#Examples) for CS publications (like research papers, project reports, books, presentations etc.)? Or, is it a matter of personal choice/preference (and sticking to it forever)?
