Say I am using IEEE Transactions journal class

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}

How I should align the author properly so that it appears in this format?

In conference mode you already have the \IEEEauthorblockN for (N)ame and \IEEEauthorblockA for (A)ffilition of each author in the column format. You then introduce line breaks in the same cell to put the second ones. The columns are seperated by \and commands.

\documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
\usepackage{lipsum} %<---- For dummy text
\title{Some IEEE paper}

  • Is there a way to add some whole width IEEEauthorblockA between the author blocks and the beguining of the document? Something like – dinigo Oct 30 '13 at 13:11
  • Why doesn't it come out like this with just using \and between each author? – Raffi Khatchadourian Jun 12 '18 at 19:30

    +1, this looks really nice. One thing that is a bit confusing though is that the authors are listed in different order in the source and in the pdf. – user000001 Sep 1 '18 at 12:31
