how to delete the surrounded date without deleting the footer's date?

enter image description here

I've tried \date{}, but this would remove the footer's date too.

@Sigur, that've worked, thank you. Do you want to put it as an answer or do I close the topic? – dgs May 2 '14 at 22:08
Thanx, to remove date from title \date{} worked perfectly well. – Bhupender K Som Jun 9 '14 at 7:54

Since the footer makes use of the shorter version of the date you can use an option to pass it to the footer.


Then the empty mandatory argument is used for the title page and the optional argument is used for headers/footers.

The same applies to \title[]{}, \author[]{}, \institution[]{} and so on.
