# llncs: Separated authors

How I can make authors separately in llncs environment like in the example below?

I made it in one line using following command, but I don't know how to make them separately:

\author{
ABC\inst{1}
\and XYZ\inst{1},
}

\institute{
Institute ABC\\
}

• The llncs class is for submission to Springer and they decide how the author names will appear. – egreg Nov 2 '14 at 11:54
• @egreg What does it mean? That I can not create authors names separately? – Ziva Nov 2 '14 at 12:01
• Sure you can, but your paper will either be rejected or they just put it back to their standards. The important question is: Are you submitting to Springer? – Johannes_B Nov 2 '14 at 12:05
• @Johannes_B No, not to Springer – Ziva Nov 2 '14 at 17:06
• But this is the template file for Springer journals. Does the journal you are submitting to have a LaTeX template? Use this instead. If not, my next step would be to ask the publisher for some details on submitting content. If its ok to use Springers template, we can find a solution (we can find one even if its not ok). – Johannes_B Nov 2 '14 at 17:09

Many Journals have templates out there that submitting authors can enter their title and personal information in a standardized way. That makes the work of the journal editors more easy. The overall look of titles of all articles in one journal looks similar, which is an important feature.

If you do not want to submit to a journal, don't use the template they provide. The most practical approach is to use standard article class and define something like a title by hand.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{url}
\DeclareUrlCommand\email{\urlstyle{sf}}
\begin{document}
\begingroup%titlestuff
{\Large\centering \bfseries

}\vspace{.8cm}
\begin{center}
\sffamily

\section{rock around the duck}
\blindtext
\end{document}

This is not the most robust approach though. Some more
information on how to change the appearence of a title, or more
prcisely titlepage, can be found in [How to customize a title
page]().
