According to the Springer's guidelines, I am requred to use llncs documentclass (as in the template) and to indicate the corresponding author.

Unfortunately neither the guidelines, the template nor this instruction covers how may I do it in the llncs documentclass.

Of course I can provide e-mail with my affiliation, but there are other authors from my institute. Also I may claim that there is a Corresponding author: [email protected] institute and (despite of an evident violation of the semantics) I would go that way the affiliations were not automatically enumerated. I believe the corresponding author should be indicated more clearly than the biggest superscript number. The \thanks macro also is not what I expect as it results in a footnote, not a part of the title.

I hope you found your answer. If someone else stumbles upon this question, here is what they need to do.

First, add the following package.

\usepackage[misc,geometry]{ifsym}

Then, add it within the \author command.

\author{John Smith \Letter\inst{1}\orcidID{0000-0000-0000-0000}}

I got this from the following webpage: LaTex forum

One option that I like very much and want to add to the pool of answers is using package fontawesome5. This solution compiles also with Tectonic

\usepackage{fontawesome5}

\begin{document}
\title{Runtime load-shifting of distributed controllers across networked devices}

\author{Angelo Filaseta\inst{1}\orcidID{0009-0004-6797-6814} \and
Danilo Pianini\inst{1}\orcidID{0000-0002-8392-5409}\faIcon{envelope}}

\institute{
    Alma Mater Studiorum---Università di Bologna,
    47522 Cesena (FC), Italy
    \email{
        [email protected], \faIcon{envelope} [email protected]
    }
}

result: rendered icon

    Similar approach to mine, but the symbol more intuitive. At least for people familiar with history of our culture, as no one uses envelopes to send e-mails. ;)

What I did was an obvious abuse of semantics:

\author{Name1\inst{1}\orcidID{0000-0001-2345-6789}$\spadesuit$ \and
        Name2\inst{1}\orcidID{0000-0002-3456-7891} \and
        Name3\inst{1,2}\orcidID{0000-0002-3456-7892}
}
%
\authorrunning{Name1 et al.}
% First names are abbreviated in the running head.
% If there are more than two authors, 'et al.' is used.
%
\institute{Institute1, Somewhere \and
           Institute2, Somewhere else\\
           $\spadesuit$ Corresponding author: \email{[email protected]}
}
