I am trying to reach a layout similar to the one used in this, or this paper, with the ACM SIGCHI Conference format.

Mainly I want to get a list of authors on the same line with commas between their names, without using a single /author{} block, so to not break the metadata extraction tools.

Same goes to the list of emails with same endings. How can I reach a format with {first1.last1,first2,last2}@email?

I am afraid ACM explicitly discourages this format. They wanted me to make it impossible. Well, with TeX nothing is completely impossible, but I tried to make it hard.

  • I know it's discourages to do anything else than the standard format. But I see it is accepted in many recent papers, and it is my preferred formatting. So I thought there must be a way to do it without messing up the metadata extraction scrapers.
