Are there any special settings that will hide author information during the review phase of a double-blind conferences? Are we supposed to omit the author information ourselves?

Sample code:



% Copyright



\acmConference[Conf'2018]{ACM Conf Conference}{March 2018}{City, USA}




    \author{John Doe}
        \institution{Awesome Institute of Technology}


    Dummy abstract


Is there any better alternative to removing the "John Doe" lines of author information?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us (and also you) and add a minimal working example with bibliography (MWEB), that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass and ending with \end{document}.

you can add the parameter "anonymous=true" to your document class, so that it becomes:


or, as suggested in the comments by @gabor-szarnyas, just


You can keep it until the review process finishes, and then just replace true with false (or simply remove the "anonymous" parameter)
