I am trying to use authblk package. However, when I use it, all the authors just disappear! I deleted all my authors and copied complete examples which had used authblk but the same thing happened. Does anyone know what's the matter? Any other solution for multiple affiliations? this is what I get


\title{More than one Author with different Affiliations}
\author[1]{Author A}
\author[1]{Author B}
\author[1]{Author C}
\author[2]{Author D}
\author[2]{Author E}
\affil[1]{Department of Computer Science, \LaTeX\ University}
\affil[2]{Department of Mechanical Engineering, \LaTeX\ University}

\renewcommand\Authands{ and }
  • Could you please provide an example code?

ACM uses its own scheme for grouping authors, which is not compatible with authblk.

Please use this syntax:

\author{Author A}
\author{Author B}
\author{Author C}
\affiliation{\institution{\LaTeX\ University}
             \department{Department of Computer Science}}
\author{Author D}
\author{Author E}
\affiliation{\institution{\LaTeX\ University}
             \department{Department of Mechanical Engineering}}
  • It is correct. However, if A and C have the same affiliation while B and D have another, this solution will end up in 4 times affiliation! May 4, 2019 at 9:51
  • Well, this is how ACM wants it...
