For IEEE authors, what is the difference between \IEEEauthorblockN and \IEEEauthorblockA? Is there more than these?

Thank you


The macro \IEEEauthorblockN should be used to state the names of the authors, and the macro \IEEEauthorblockA should be used to state the authors' affiliations. Both macros should be used inside an \author{...} directive.

One should use the \IEEEauthorblockN and \IEEEauthorblockA macros mainly if the document is being prepared for a conference, in which case one would write

\documentclass[conference,<other options>]{IEEEtran}

Here's a usage example straight out of the user guide of the IEEEtran package:

\author{\IEEEauthorblockN{Michael Shell}
\IEEEauthorblockA{School of Electrical and\\
Computer Engineering\\
Georgia Institute of Technology\\
Atlanta, Georgia 30332--0250}}
