I am trying to put two affiliations for an author in sig-alternate (ACM SIG Proceedings), for the second author. So effectively, the second author should be over both the second and the third affiliations. But there is no way I can keep the third author field blank and have only the affiliation there. Is there any other way to do this?

\author{
\alignauthor
First Author\\
       \affaddr{Some lab, Some University}\\
       \affaddr{New Found Land, NJ, USA}\\
       \email{somemail@someserver.edu}
\alignauthor
Second Author\\
       \affaddr{Some lab}\\
       \affaddr{Some company}\\
       \affaddr{Santa Clara, CA, USA}\\
       \email{otheremail@company.com}
\alignauthor 
   Test author\\
       \affaddr{The Th{\o}rv{\"a}ld Group}\\
       \affaddr{1 Th{\o}rv{\"a}ld Circle}\\
       \affaddr{Hekla, Iceland}\\
       \email{larst@affiliation.org}
}

Welcome to TeX.sx! It's not clear what you're for; should "Second author" be above both affiliations? –  egreg Mar 7 '13 at 18:08
    
Thanks! Yes, second author will have two affiliations. –  Abhishek Chanda Mar 7 '13 at 18:45

For two authors I'd go with \and rather than \alignauthor, using a nested tabular for the two affiliations:

\documentclass{sig-alternate}

\begin{document}

\title{Paper}

\author{%
First Author\\
  \affaddr{Some lab, Some University}\\
  \affaddr{New Found Land, NJ, USA}\\
  \email{somemail@someserver.edu}
\and
Second Author\\
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}c@{}}
  \affaddr{Some lab}\\
  \affaddr{Some company}\\
  \affaddr{Santa Clara, CA, USA}\\
  \email{otheremail@company.com}
  \end{tabular}\nobreak\qquad
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}c@{}}
  \affaddr{The Th{\o}rv\"ald Group}\\
  \affaddr{1 Th{\o}rv\"ald Circle}\\
  \affaddr{Hekla, Iceland}\\
  \email{larst@affiliation.org}
  \end{tabular}
}
\maketitle


\end{document}
