In conference mode you already have the \IEEEauthorblockN for (N)ame and \IEEEauthorblockA for (A)ffilition of each author in the column format. You then introduce line breaks in the same cell to put the second ones. The columns are seperated by \and commands.

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage{lipsum} %<---- For dummy text
\title{Some IEEE paper}

\author{
\IEEEauthorblockN{Michael Shell}
\IEEEauthorblockA{School of Electrical and\\
Computer Engineering\\
Georgia Institute of Technology\\
Atlanta, Georgia 30332--0250\\
Email: mshell@ece.gatech.edu}\\   %<------ Line breaks in the current column

\IEEEauthorblockA{School of Electrical and\\

\and
\IEEEauthorblockN{Homer Simpson}

\begin{document}

\end{abstract}

\lipsum[2-6]

Is there a way to add some whole width IEEEauthorblockA between the author blocks and the beguining of the document? Something like –  demil133 Oct 30 '13 at 13:11
