How to display multiple authors in a journal style e.g. \documentclass{llncs} document?

The solution suggested in What's the correct use of \author{} when multiple authors? does not work for me, as \and is not working in my document.

Please refer to the documentation for the llncs class (the file llncsdoc.pdf found inside llncs2e.zip):

Now the name(s) of the author(s) must be given:

\author{<author(s) name(s)>}

Numbers referring to different addresses or affiliations are to be attached to each author with the \inst{<no>} command. If there is more than one author, the order is up to you; the \and command provides for the separation[...]

[...]Next the address(es) of institute(s), company etc. is (are) required. If there is more than one address, the entries are numbered automatically with \and, in the order in which you type them. Please make sure that the numbers match those placed next to to the authors’ names to reflect the affiliation.

A little example:



\title{Hamiltonian Mechanics unter besonderer Ber\"ucksichtigung der
h\"ohreren Lehranstalten}

\author{Ivar Ekeland\inst{1} \and Roger Temam\inst{2}
Jeffrey Dean \and David Grove \and Craig Chambers \and Kim~B.~Bruce \and
Elsa Bertino}

The particular template file I got has below line and therefore it does not work. \def\author#1{\begin{center}{\sc #1\par}\end{center}} – 911 Jun 9 '11 at 2:56
It didn't work because you didn't follow the instructions. Don't use centering here. – David Hammen Jun 9 '11 at 7:50
@Gonzalo: You know were "unter besonderer Ber\"ucksichtigung der h\"ohreren Lehranstalten" comes from. Funny to read it here ... – Kurt Sep 22 '12 at 19:51
@Kurt no idea, Where does it come from? – Gonzalo Medina Sep 22 '12 at 19:55
There is a movie called "Die Feuerzangenbowle" were a teacher always cites his fictive book "... unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der höhreren Lehranstalten". – Kurt Sep 22 '12 at 19:59
