    A partial explanation of the capitalisation is "AUC" = "Aalborg Universitetscenter" now Aalborg University – Andrew Swann Jan 6 '15 at 15:37

  • @AndrewSwann - Yep, wikipedia says: "AUCTeX, originating from the ‘tex-mode.el’ package of Emacs 16, was created by students from Aalborg University Center (now Aalborg University), hence the name AUCTeX." – Adobe Jan 6 '15 at 15:43

If you installed AUCTeX from ELPA (which I generally recommend), then M-x list-packages will give you that information (the good thing about this method, is that it works for all packages installed from ELPA).
