The first author has multiple affiliations that are different in everything including country. The second author also has diffirent affiliation than the first author's two affiliations.

How should I go about it? I suggest to make the three affiliations at the button in a shared way and just add superscript on the names of the authors. So the first author will have superscript (1,2) and the second (3). I think this is more convenience as there is a possibility for a third author to join which shares the affiliation with one of the authors.

This is my current script which I do not know how to make my above description on it (make the affiliations shared with a number proceeding them, and superscript above the author names).



\author{First Author}
  \institution{First University}

\author{Second Author}
  \institution{Second University}
Abstract here.


I need to do something like the following (numbers as superscript on the authors names) and the affiliations are shared in the line below their names. enter image description here

  • @Alan Munn Thanks but the solution provided is not what I'm looking for. I do not prefer footnote-like way to specify the affiliations. – None Jun 21 '18 at 3:21
  • But this is how the ACM class is set up, so I'm assuming that's what they require. – Alan Munn Jun 21 '18 at 3:22
  • @Alan Munn please see my edit. This picture is taken from ACM publication and I want to do the affiliations similar to it. – None Jun 23 '18 at 5:00
