I have a paper where I have 4 different authors with a common affiliation. I would like to mention there names and then a single affiliation followed by individual mail addresses. I have included the code I have and the format snapshot I would like to have. I am using TexStudio and am new to LaTeX. Please help me and tell me the correct use of \author for this.


\title{CNFET-Based 0.1 V to 0.6 V DC/DC Converter}

% author names and affiliations
% use a multiple column layout for up to three different
% affiliations
\author{\IEEEauthorblockN{Aditya Tyagi}
\IEEEauthorblockA{School of Electrical and\\Computer Engineering\\
Georgia Institute of Technology\\
Atlanta, Georgia 30332--0250\\
Email: http://www.michaelshell.org/contact.html}
\IEEEauthorblockN{Homer Simpson}
\IEEEauthorblockA{Twentieth Century Fox\\
Springfield, USA\\

San Francisco, California 96678-2391\\
Telephone: (800) 555--1212\\
Fax: (888) 555--1212}}

This is how I would like to have it.

I suggest you use the "long form" suggestion in the documentation, combing this with \IEEEauthorrefmark to attach footnote symbols to tie the pieces of information together:

Sample output


\title{An Important Conference Contribution}

\author{\IEEEauthorblockN{Author One\IEEEauthorrefmark{1},
Author Two\IEEEauthorrefmark{2}, Author Three\IEEEauthorrefmark{3} and
Author Four\IEEEauthorrefmark{4}}
\IEEEauthorblockA{Department of Whatever,
Whichever University\\
Email: \IEEEauthorrefmark{1}[email protected],
\IEEEauthorrefmark{2}[email protected],
\IEEEauthorrefmark{3}[email protected],
\IEEEauthorrefmark{4}[email protected]}}

  • Hi, this is very great solution. How can I indicate the last author mask is the corresponding author? The mask often appears as start

    @Jame You can just write \IEEEauthorrefmark{4}Corresponding author at whatever position you want this to appear in the block, add `\` before or after for a linebreak. Commented Jan 22, 2018 at 9:08
  • @AndrewSwann thank you for this answer.

If you have multiple authors with one or more people having multiple affiliations:

Use package


Then, at the place of authors:

\author[1]{FN1 LN1}
\author[1,2]{FN2 LN2}
\affil[1]{University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA \authorcr Email: {\tt \{uid1, uid2\}@usc.edu}\vspace{1.5ex}}
\affil[2]{NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA \authorcr Email: {\tt [email protected]} \vspace{-2ex}} 

Note that \vspace{1.5ex} and \vspace{-2ex} to adjust vertical space padding.

    authrblk gives FN1 LN1, and FN2 LN2. The AND is really strange in a research paper
