There is no direct support for shared affiliation addresses in the sig-alternate class. Basically, ACM suggest you to give all information for each author in a dedicated \alignauthor block.

\documentclass{sig-alternate}
\title{My Fancy Paper}
\begin{document}

\author{
% 1st. author
\alignauthor
Ben Trovato\\
             \affaddr{Institute for Clarity in Documentation, Wallamaloo, New Zeeland}\\
             \email{trovato@corporation.com}
\and
\alignauthor
Foo Bar\\
             \affaddr{Institute for Clarity in Documentation, Wallamaloo, New Zeeland}\\
             \email{bar@corporation.com}
\and
\alignauthor
Cool Guy\\
             \affaddr{Cool Stuff Intitute, Cold Village, Iceland}\\
             \email{cool.guy@stuffinstitute.com}
}

If you don't like this or consider it as too space-consuming, you can of course hack around this manually to get the intended result. This is probably not "correct", but I have to admit that I do this for space reasons quite frequently – and nobody ever has complained about it.

\documentclass{sig-alternate}
\title{My Fancy Paper}
\begin{document}
