I am working on a report using the VLDB template. I am getting an extra section called `Additional Authors' even though I have given all the authors names on the front page along with the right author name numbers. This is the following code. I am not sure what is activating the additional authors section.

\numberofauthors{4} 

\author{
\alignauthor
Lini Thomas\\
       \affaddr{IIIT-Hyderabad}\\
       \affaddr{Hyderabad, India.}\\
       \email{lini.thomas@iiit.ac.in}

Basically the problem is with vldb.cls file. In vldb.cls file, change :

\def\addauthorsection{\ifnum\originalaucount>3
    \section{Additional Authors}\the\addauthors
  \fi}

to :

\def\addauthorsection{\ifnum\originalaucount>6
    \section{Additional Authors}\the\addauthors
  \fi}
