I am trying to make a latex template for reuse by me and other people in my lab. The template reference is a word doc. I have gotten most of the way using the asme2e class, but I am having trouble with the author blocks.

This is the target: enter image description here

I've tried authblk to do this, but authblk will not load for me. I get an error:

authblk.sty:113: Undefined control sequence. [\xdef\AB@author{\noexpand\AB@blk@and\@author]

So, I am trying to do this without authblk, but have the solution be as simple as possible so others (and myself a year from now) can use it. Others may have more than or less than 3 authors.

For example, I don't want to abuse title like here.

Here is some code that include my preamble.


\cs_new_eq:NN \Repeat \prg_replicate:nn



\title{Your Title Here}
\conffullname{Proceeding of the ASME Super Awesome Conference}

\confcity{city, state}

 Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. 

 Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.



  • Maybe something like that could help: tex.stackexchange.com/a/214425/828 – Habi Jan 9 '15 at 9:48
  • Those are added as footnotes. – jmerkow Jan 9 '15 at 17:40
  • I know that the affiliations are added as footnotes, but maybe you could use another pointer with that trick. – Habi Jan 12 '15 at 10:59
