How can one avoid the error message "Authors Suppressed Due to Excessive Length" using LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) template? Would it be possible to change it to First Author et al. or similar?

Could you add a minimal working example (MWE)? – Silke Dec 20 '12 at 15:52
my list of authors is too long, 10 authors – flow Dec 20 '12 at 15:57
@flow Yes, we know. But if you followed the link provided by Silex, you would see that the request for MWE is legitimate. Provide a MWE giving the error, and we will try to find a solution for you. That is how this site is supposed to work in general. – yo' Dec 20 '12 at 16:07
@flow -- your comment is (unintentionally, I assume) hilarious. Isn't that the error you're trying to solve? I suspect TeX.SX will in this case grant a dispensation and allow a list of ten authors. – jon Dec 20 '12 at 17:13
I have just waken up and do not get your comment jon, I will think about it today :-P – flow Dec 21 '12 at 8:06

Yes, that is possible. In the preamble, do

\authorrunning{First Author et al.}
