I have a paper with 3 authors, affiliated to 3 institutions, and it's supposed to abide to the IEEEtran format.

Author A is affiliated to X and Z, Author B is affiliated to X, and Author C is affiliated to Y.

I wonder if (and how) I can organize the author section like:

enter image description here

As you can see, Author 1 has multiple affiliations. I guess I could have a completely separate column for each author, with his affiliation below, but Author 1 would then have 4 lines of affiliation...

The code I currently have is:

\documentclass[10pt, conference, compsocconf, letterpaper]{IEEEtran}

\pagestyle{plain}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage[draft]{fixme}
\usepackage{soul}

\begin{document}

\title{Paper Title}

\author{
    \IEEEauthorblockN{Author 1}
    \IEEEauthorblockA  {
        University X\\
        Country of X\\
        University Z\\
        Country of Z
    }
    \and
    \IEEEauthorblockN{Author 2}
    \IEEEauthorblockA  {
        University X\\
        Country of X
    }
    \and
    \IEEEauthorblockN{Author 3}
    \IEEEauthorblockA  {
        University Y\\
        Country of Y
    }
}

\maketitle

\end{document}

  • Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – jub0bs Mar 18 '14 at 0:55
  • @Jubobs I saw that question and it's different from what I'm asking: I do not want institutions in different rows; instead, I want them in different columns. – Eduardo Bezerra Mar 18 '14 at 0:55

You can (ab)use the \title field:

\documentclass[10pt, conference, compsocconf, letterpaper]{IEEEtran}

\pagestyle{plain}
\newcommand\Mark[1]{\textsuperscript{#1}}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage[draft]{fixme}
\usepackage{soul}

\begin{document}

\title{Paper Title\\[.75ex] 
  {\normalfont\large 
    Author 1\Mark{x,z}, Author 1\Mark{y}, Author 3\Mark{z}%
  }\\[-1.5ex]
}

\author{
    \IEEEauthorblockA{%
        \Mark{x}University X\\
        Country of X%
    }
    \and
    \IEEEauthorblockA{%
        \Mark{y}University Y\\
        Country of Y%
    }
    \and
    \IEEEauthorblockA{%
        \Mark{z}University Z\\
        Country of Z%
    }
}

\maketitle

\end{document}

If you are writing for a journal, this decission will be discarded anyway.

  • It kinda worked actually, but I wonder if there is a less hackish way of doing this... And what do you mean by "If you are writing for a journal, this decission will be discarded anyway"? – Eduardo Bezerra Mar 18 '14 at 2:06

    @EduardoBezerra I mean that the journal will format the author information according to their predefined rules, so any changes to their default formatting won't be taken into account. – Gonzalo Medina Mar 18 '14 at 2:56
