How about using alpha.bst? If that's not the right format, try running "latex makebst" and following the instructions---that will let you sort in a number of ways.

References ordered alphabetically is the default for the template.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

The template uses the modern system of biblatex.

The style is author year and the references are ordered alphabetically. If this is not the case, you changed something and need to show a minimal working example.

You cannot use without changing the template and getting rid of the advantages that are preset.

Well, who could have guessed that you want a numeric style, for which the reference list is sorted alphabetically by default.

I use:

usepackage[backend=bibtex,style=numeric,natbib=true]{biblatex}

but the references appear as:

[1] Hazem Ahmed and Janice Glasgow. “Swarm intelligence: concepts,
models and applications”. In: School Of Computing, Queens
University Technical Report (2012).
[2] Khaled Ahmed, Ahmed Ibrahem Hafez, and Aboul Ella Hassanien.
“A discrete Krill herd optimization algorithm for community
detection”. In: 2015 11th International Computer Engineering
Conference (ICENCO). IEEE. 2015, pp. 297–302.
[3] Taher Alzahrani and KJ Horadam. “Community detection in bipartite
networks: Algorithms and case studies”. In: Complex Systems
and Networks. Springer, 2016, pp. 25–50.
[4] Ramadan Babers, Aboul Ella Hassanien, and Neveen I Ghali. “A
nature-inspired metaheuristic Lion Optimization Algorithm for
community detection”. In: 2015 11th International Computer Engineering
Conference (ICENCO), Cairo University, Egypt. IEEE. 2015,
pp. 217–222.

And the list is sorted alphabetically. What do you expect more?

Maybe you want an additional ?

Kindly, Ref. No [4] (Ramadan) appears after Ref. No [3] (Taher) which is wrong.
I need [4] before [3] as T is after R.

this is for example,
