# Subtitle in IEEE document class

How can I add a subtitle to my Latex document using the IEEETran document class?

I would like to know if it is possible to use a built-in command that gives me the regular title in addition to a subtitle written in a slightly smaller font?

I found this question related to it, where they recommend to use a title page, but this does not seem to fit my needs. Also, I looked in the documentation for the IEEETran class but was unable to find it there.

There is no built in command for a subtitle. –  egreg Jan 18 '13 at 11:45

You could do something like this.

\documentclass{IEEEtran}
\title{A clever paper \\ {\large really clever}}
\author{A Person}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}

Do you know if this is allowed (when submitting a paper following the IEEE doc. class)? –  kfuglsang Jan 18 '13 at 11:50
It depends on the journal, but I would say almost certainly not. If the class does not provide for subtitles, they are probably not allowed. –  Ian Thompson Jan 18 '13 at 11:59
@kfuglsang ieeetran style is not conclusive but only suggestive; whatever you do with your file it will be reprocessed by the copy editor using their internal style. The publication office will turn your subtitle concatenated to the title after a colon. Something like Matrix : The movie not the square thingy. –  percusse Jan 18 '13 at 12:03
Thanks for the help. –  kfuglsang Jan 18 '13 at 12:10
