I'm trying to submit a paper to IEEE journals, and has some much information to put at the thanks note at the first page. However, I found that if I put the thanks note of the institues that support us togehter with the author (there are four) informations, that would be a huge footnote block at the left column in page 1. Therefore, is there any adjustments by IEEE format to the put part of thanks note (in my case, the author information) to the right column in page 1?

It is ideal if thanks notes to be in the footnote at left column and author information to be in the footnote at the right column. The following picture is a word template that IEEE provide but not included in the example of latex files. The red box is what the effect that I want to achieve.

enter image description here

Below is the MWE that contains the information that I want to put in our paper (of course, all names has changed to be anonymous). As you can see if you put in the overleaf website, it is a large box of foot note at the bottom left.

  • Thanks for your information, @Celdor. But I don't want all the information to be put at the bottom of the right column. I have posted a new picture whihch has the effect that I desired.

  • The document shown indicates that it is possible, but the IEEEtran manual doesn't say how. There is a newer IEEE template, but last time I checked there was no manual (online help only). Commented Sep 13, 2022 at 16:07
  • Visit journals.ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/… Commented Sep 13, 2022 at 16:13
  • @JohnKormylo The newest version of IEEE latex template provides two .tex files. These two files only show thanks note in the left page. The picture that I posted is the newest version of IEEE word template which has the desired effect that I want.

Just for fun:

One could pre-format the \thanks into left and right blocks using saveboxes and \vsplit.

%\usepackage{cite}
%\usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
\usepackage{algorithmic}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{xcolor}
%\usepackage{float}
%\usepackage{hyperref}% seriously?
\usepackage{lipsum}% MWE only
\usepackage{afterpage}
