    What document class are you using? That might make a difference. – Arun Debray Jan 30 '16 at 4:06

Under a twocolumn article, you can insert \footnotetext[<num>] while still in the first column. This will set a footnote without the footnote mark. Below I've set the footnote to be printed as \fnsymbol, which follows the sequence *, , , §, , , **, ††, ‡‡, (error), in sync with the title's \thanks:

enter image description here


\title{A title}
\author{An author\thanks{Some reference to this author}}


\sloppy% Just for this example


\footnotetext[1]{Here is some footnote at the bottom of the first column that might reference the author.}%
\section{A section}

  • i used the \thanks method, but the line doesn't appear – Amr Shata Jan 30 '16 at 7:01
  • @AmrShata: I assume it's okay though, as you've accepted my answer. If not, what \documentclass are you using? – Werner Jan 30 '16 at 7:04
  • \documentclass[a4paper,10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} – Amr Shata Jan 30 '16 at 7:09
  • @AmrShata: Under conference mode, \thanks doesn't work. However, you'll still get the "footnote" if you use my technique. Not sure whether that suffices. – Werner Jan 30 '16 at 7:12
  • yeah i managed to add the notice using \thanks, but the line doesn't appear i tried the other method too, still i can't get the line – Amr Shata Jan 30 '16 at 7:12
