Does someone know the solution?

• this answer is relevant, although the question isn't really. – barbara beeton Aug 17 '16 at 15:11
• Now, I'm the "somebody who finds this infelicitous" but the package footmisc didn't help with option bottom... – Tom Solid Aug 18 '16 at 5:48
• i was thinking more about the explanation of why footnotes are considered more appropriate above tables or figures at the bottom. your problem is more complicated -- latex simply doesn't handle float placement at the bottom of double-column layouts. perhaps some of the ideas in this question How to put a full-width table at the top or bottom of the same two-column page as the reference text? might help, but setting the table not as a float, but "in line" and manually entering a blank area in the right column. – barbara beeton Aug 18 '16 at 12:00
