# How to include brackets in an acmart sigconf email address?

We have a lot of email addresses in a paper, and want to abbreviate them using brackets. Minimal working example:

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}

\begin{document}

\title{A paper}
\author{Tom, Dick, Harry}
\email{ \{ tom, dick, harry \} @gmail.com}

\maketitle

\end{document}


However, the brackets show up incorrectly:

I want it to succinctly say {tom, dick, harry}@gmail.com.

Question: How to include brackets in an acmart sigconf email address?

I tried using math mode for the brackets, using \protect, and using \textbraceleft and \textbraceright, but these just add additional problems.

Enter the braces as { and } (and not as \{ and \}) in \email macro:

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}

\begin{document}

\title{a paper}
\author{tom, dick, harry}
\email{{tom, dick, harry}@gmail.com}

\maketitle

\end{document}

• Explanation: acmart uses \nolinkurl for typesetting the email address. – egreg Apr 20 '18 at 7:03
• Thanks! Problem solved. (Although, I feel a bit silly for not thinking to try this.) – Rebecca J. Stones Apr 20 '18 at 7:50
