My university recommends to use the acmart document class for theses, while at the same time requiring a standard cover page which includes title and author information. Considering I am also limited in the number of pages, I do not want to repeat this information on the first page of the thesis. When I leave the title and author information out, \maketitle prompts a "no title given" exception, but extra whitespace is still reserved on the first page. Moreover, when I omit \maketitle, the ACM formatting doesn't work. Unfortunately, my coding skills are fairly weak. Would anyone know a way to get around this?
Thank you in advance,
