Similarly to the thread Upper and lowercase of a word in the \section heading , I want to disable uppercase for a single word. However, the word should not be in lowercase, but printed as written.

I'm using the ACM sigconf template (\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}) wherein all section titles are uppercase by default. I want to be able adding the chapter's author right-aligned, next to the chapter's title, as (Authorname) instead of currently (AUTHORNAME):

enter image description here



Document Environment:

\section{Introduction \chapterAuthor{Authorname}}

    you have provided no example to test but I assume \usepackage[overload]{textcase} and \NoCaseChage{Authorname} would work. – David Carlisle Jul 25 '18 at 18:30

    Sorry, I was thinking that a MWE is not required here. I can confirm that your solution works as expected. Thanks a lot! – Patrick Jul 25 '18 at 18:39
  • Funny thing: One can read (at least partially) what you tried to make unreadable :) – Skillmon Jul 25 '18 at 18:43

You have provided no example to test but I assume (apparently correctly :-) that




would work in your case.
