I'm using the IEEE format to write a paper. I have 4 authors from two institutions so I need blocks of affiliations. This is how I want it to look like:

Author 1*, Author 2#, Author 3#, Author 4*
Affiliation 1, {1,4}@abc.com
Affiliation 2, {2,3}@def.com

Note that the 1st and the 4th are from one institution, and the 2nd and the 3rd from another one.

Everything is centered, of course.

How to do this?


I found the solution. This is how it's done:

    \IEEEauthorblockN{Author1\IEEEauthorrefmark{1}, Author2\IEEEauthorrefmark{2}, Author3\IEEEauthorrefmark{2}, Author4\IEEEauthorrefmark{1}}
    \\\{1, 4\}@abc.com}
    \\\{2, 3\}@def.com}
\title{A title}

output of code

  • Strange that you got this to work. In some of the newer templates I'm finding that: \def\@IEEEauthorblockAstyle{\smallfont\normalsize} in the cls is causing issues with the maketitle. The work around is to leave out the \IEEEauthorblockA for the information you give, and then it works. Otherwise I think a definition for normalsize is required. – Eamonn Kenny Apr 20 '15 at 9:43
  • @EamonnKenny The solution here works for me with an up-to-date TeX Live installation. – Joseph Wright Apr 20 '15 at 9:49
  • I like this compact style but I wonder whether it complies with the latest IEEE conference template guidelines (conference-latex-template_10-17-19), which state: "Names should not be listed in columns nor group [sic] by affiliation." My interpretation of the style shown here is that this is a grouping by affiliation. However, (a) the explanations regarding the author block are very brief and leave room for interpretation and (b) I have no experience whether this guideline is accepted by the communities using the template or is just a wishful thinking of the template authors. – Icarus Aug 24 at 11:25
