# 2 lines for the author block

I have a paper template that require that the authors should be written in the format:

XXX    YYY
Inst-111    Inst-222
Inst-333    Inst-444
email-1     e-mail-2


I have written it as follows:

\documentclass[11pt,english]{article}
\usepackage{coling2016}

\author{
LastName1,\\ FirstName1\\
\texttt{first1.last1@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
LastName2,\\ FirstName2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
LastName2,\\ FirstName2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
LastName2,\\ FirstName2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
LastName2,\\ FirstName2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
LastName2,\\ FirstName2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
}
\title{Usage of the \texttt{\textbackslash author} command}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


Coling template at: http://coling2016.anlp.jp/doc/coling2016.zip

However, because I have to add 5 authors I receive an overflow and it does not change line. I am not using the IEEEtrans template.

I would like to have 3 authors on the first row and 2 authors centered at the second row.

• Good. As you can see in the solution below, there was no chance to help based on the initial information alone. Sep 26 '16 at 16:45

In coling2016.sty, there are three different and-commands: \and separates the name of authors with the same affiliation, \And separates authors with different affiliations on the same line, and \AND separates different lines of authors. See the comments at the beginning of coling2016.sty for more (?) information. Here is your example.

\documentclass[11pt,english]{article}
\usepackage{coling2016}
\author{
First Last 1\\
Affiliation 1\\
\texttt{first1.last1@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
First Last 2\\
Affiliation 2\\
\texttt{first2.last2@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
First Last 3\\
Affiliation 3\\
\texttt{first3.last3@xxxxx.com}
\\\AND
First Last 4\\
Affiliation 4\\
\texttt{first4.last4@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
First Last 5\\
Affiliation 5\\
\texttt{first5.last5@xxxxx.com}
\\\And
First Last 6\\
Affiliation 6\\
\texttt{first6.last6@xxxxx.com}
}
\title{Usage of the \texttt{\textbackslash author} command}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\end{document}


• Using the HICCS-51 template \AND overlaps the text below. I can't find a solution yet. Sep 12 '18 at 8:16
• Below \usepackage{hicss51}, add the line \setlength\titlebox{6cm} or whatever is necessary for the height of your author block. Sep 12 '18 at 15:29
