I am using ACM conference template. I cannot add spacing between the first author's e-mail and the second author's.

I have this code:

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}
\usepackage[portuguese]{babel}

\settopmatter{authorsperrow=3}

\AtBeginDocument{%
  \providecommand\BibTeX{{%
    \normalfont B\kern-0.5em{\scshape i\kern-0.25em b}\kern-0.8em\TeX}}}

The result:

How do I include a space between the e-mails of the first author and the second author?

  • Are you using the template to submit a paper or for an other project ? If it is to submit a paper, I'd let it like that and let the editor manage the problem. – Bromind Aug 12 '20 at 13:27
  • Hello @Bromind, thanks for your help! I will submit my paper to a conference. I was wondering if there is any simple way to solve this problem. – ricardoramos Aug 12 '20 at 17:54
  • @ricardoramos, facin', facin', tem não. Mas tem uma gambiarra. Vê se serve. – user9424 Aug 14 '20 at 2:16

Just set to 2 authors per row:

\settopmatter{authorsperrow=2}

Now it fits.

Edit: Second Option

An option is to put the two guys from the same institution in one cell, and perhaps abbreviate the huge institution name

Up to you.

\documentclass[sigconf]{acmart}
\usepackage[portuguese]{babel}

\settopmatter{authorsperrow=2}

\AtBeginDocument{%
  \providecommand\BibTeX{{%
    \normalfont B\kern-0.5em{\scshape i\kern-0.25em b}\kern-0.8em\TeX}}}

Edit: Third Option

If you really want to do this, you can try setting

\makeatletter
%\def\@authorfont{\normalfont\small} %change font. don't do this.
%\def\@affiliationfont{\normalfont\small} %change font. don't do this.
\def\author@bx@sep{0pc}
\makeatother

before \begin{document}.

Then it fits. But be aware that all changes you make are liable to come to nought: if the editor wants a 2x2 setup with one author in the last line or a 2x2 option with authors of the same institution in the same cell, he will.

  • Thanks for your help! I tried this attempt before, but the result is not good. With this configuration I will have 2 authors per line and in the last line I will have only 1 author. The result is not good. – ricardoramos Aug 14 '20 at 15:56

    "The result is not good" is very subjective. You have an odd number. Of course there'll be only one author in the last line. These are space issues. The reason it feels worse than 2 is your personal feeling about numerology. Your options are: 1) Enlarge margins 2) Reduce font size 3) Break lines 4) "let the editor manage the problem" (including language issues) 5) Do what I said 6) a combination thereof. – user9424 Aug 14 '20 at 17:07
  • Olá, Joseph, eu vi que você escreveu em português no outro comentário, então tomei a liberdade de escrever em português também. Mais uma vez muito obrigado mesmo por toda a sua ajuda! Me desculpe a forma como escrevi o meu inglês, talvez tenha soado de forma "grosseira", mas não foi essa a minha intenção. – ricardoramos Aug 15 '20 at 2:28
  • Eu estava pensando em usar a quebra de linha (option 3) porém queria manter o \settopmatter{authorsperrow=3} setado em 3, se houvesse alguma forma de eu deixar os dois primeiros autores na linha de cima e fazer uma quebra com os outros 3 autores na linha de baixo ficaria perfeito e já marcaria esta questão como resolvida e além disso faço questão tb de dar um upvote para você por toda a sua ajuda! Grande abraço! – ricardoramos Aug 15 '20 at 2:31
