# Overlapping header in ACM SigConf template

I am using ACM conference template sample-sigconf.tex from HERE for an ACM conference.

The template adds the conference name and author names in the header of the even pages, and the paper title and the conference name in the odd ones.

I have two problems in my script:

1) In the even pages, the template adds a conference name that I did not add and do not know where to edit it. This is it: Conference'17, July 2017, Washington, DC, USA. I even searched for this string in the script and did not find it.

2) In the odd pages, my paper title is long and it may be difficult to change the paper's title. The title overlaps with authors names as shown here:

Here is the script:

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{epstopdf}
\usepackage{placeins}
\usepackage{underscore}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\title{My Paper Title: A Xxxxxx yyy Zzzzzzzzzzz AAAAA Bbbbbbb Ccccccc ddd Eeeeeeeeeeee Ffffffff Ggggg hhh Iiiiiii}
\subtitle{Subtitle}

\author{First Author Name}
\affiliation{%
\institution{XYZ University}
}
\email{first.second@xyz}

\author{Second Author Name}

\email{first.second@xyz}

For shortening the title please use optional text in the title tag, i.e., \title[My Paper Title]{My Paper Title: A Xxxxxx yyy Zzzzzzzzzzz AAAAA Bbbbbbb Ccccccc ddd Eeeeeeeeeeee Ffffffff Ggggg hhh Iiiiiii} and the tag \acmConference which controls the even side page running head

• If it's the author list that is too long, you can give an abbreviated list like this: \renewcommand{\shortauthors}{A. Author, B. Collaborator, and C. Slacker} – mernst Feb 12 '18 at 22:26

For question 1, add nonacm to documentclass to remove Conference'17, July 2017, Washington, DC, USA.

i.e., change

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}


to

\documentclass[nonacm, sigconf]{acmart}


Edit) Here's the script:

\documentclass[nonacm, sigconf]{acmart}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{epstopdf}
\usepackage{placeins}
\usepackage{underscore}
\usepackage{lipsum}
