I wonder how I could add the IEEE copyright notice in the bottom centre and the conference title at the upper right hand corner in a LateX paper, with thanks.

  • by IEEE copyright notice do you mean the one you get using \IEEEpubid when using the IEEEtran document class?

  • I tried many times adding this form to my IEEE paper but with no use because the conference stile makes disable to copyright notice and conference title.

  • Yes the conference option disables headings and copyright. If you tell us why you need the copyright anyway we may be able to help.

  • Because I have an IEEE conference in Australia and they have told each author to add a conference title to the upper right hand corner in font size 9pt and a copyright notice in font size 10pt at the bottom centre of the paper.

In section IV.D of the IEEEtran manual you can find the details on how to use \IEEEpubid. IV.C explains \markboth for running headers.

The conference class option disables both though.

A fix for \markboth is to issue

\def\@oddfoot{\hbox{}\hfil \scriptsize \thepage}
\def\@evenfoot{\hbox{}\hfil \scriptsize \thepage}

in your preamble. You can change the contents of the first hbox to suit your needs.

If you are not using the conference option you can do



\title{Some good old Lipsum}

  \IEEEauthorblockN{Lip Sum}\\
    University of Dolor\\
    [email protected]}
\IEEEpubid{0000--0000/00\$00.00~\copyright~2012 IEEE}
\markboth{Journal of Quantum Telecommunications, Vol. 1, No. 1, January 2025}{Shell \MakeLowercase{\textit{et al.}}: A Novel Tin Can Link}





As documented in the manual, the conference class option disables both \markboth and \IEEEpubid.
