I am trying to put two affiliations for an author in sig-alternate (ACM SIG Proceedings), for the second author. So effectively, the second author should be over both the second and the third affiliations. But there is no way I can keep the third author field blank and have only the affiliation there. Is there any other way to do this?

\author{
\alignauthor
First Author\\
       \affaddr{Some lab, Some University}\\
       \affaddr{New Found Land, NJ, USA}\\
       \email{somemail@someserver.edu}
\alignauthor
Second Author\\
       \affaddr{Some lab}\\
       \affaddr{Some company}\\
       \affaddr{Santa Clara, CA, USA}\\
       \email{otheremail@company.com}
\alignauthor 
   Test author\\
       \affaddr{The Th{\o}rv{\"a}ld Group}\\
       \affaddr{1 Th{\o}rv{\"a}ld Circle}\\
       \affaddr{Hekla, Iceland}\\
       \email{larst@affiliation.org}
}

  • Welcome to TeX.sx! It's not clear what you're for; should "Second author" be above both affiliations?

For two authors I'd go with \and rather than \alignauthor, using a nested tabular for the two affiliations:

\documentclass{sig-alternate}

\begin{document}

\title{Paper}

\author{%
First Author\\
  \affaddr{Some lab, Some University}\\
  \affaddr{New Found Land, NJ, USA}\\
  \email{somemail@someserver.edu}
\and
Second Author\\
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}c@{}}
  \affaddr{Some lab}\\
  \affaddr{Some company}\\
  \affaddr{Santa Clara, CA, USA}\\
  \email{otheremail@company.com}
  \end{tabular}\nobreak\qquad
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}c@{}}
  \affaddr{The Th{\o}rv\"ald Group}\\
  \affaddr{1 Th{\o}rv\"ald Circle}\\
  \affaddr{Hekla, Iceland}\\
  \email{larst@affiliation.org}
  \end{tabular}
}
\maketitle


\end{document}

  • Thanks for this great proposal! It's the only answer that I found so far that doesn't really violate the template enforced by a conference. If there are not many authors (thus no space problem) this solution is just great!

  • is it possible to do such a simple elegant tabular solution with \author for multiple authors all with a shared affiliation? with acmsiggraph, where this one seemed to work fine.

  • @antont Not sure what you mean.

  • @egreg well what said there: how to have multiple authors with a shared affiliation? I've tried the solution in that answer but no success, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/271627/… . The one here works but for a different purpose (here many affiliations for single author, i'd need a single affiliation block under the names of all the authors)

  • @antont Please, make a new question with more details.
