I am using this template for my paper: https://www.overleaf.com/9944548wmfnwdynzwhg#/36502743/

I have a question regarding biography entries at the very end. As you can see in the template, there are big gaps between Michael Shell, John Doe and Jane Doe. We are only two authors in my paper at the last page, so this big gap does not look good, just like in the above example. Is there a way to lower it somehow? I would appreciate all help.

You could just issue \vskip 0pt plus -1fil between the two IEEEbiography elements (to negative the inserted 1fil). If you want them closer to one another, adjust 0pt to something like -2\baselineskip.
