# Adding more than one author with different affiliation

My goal is adding more than one author with different affiliations, it will look like something:

Author A, Author B, Author C, Author D and Author E
A,B,C Department of Computer Science
D,E Department of Mechanical Engineering
Email A,B,C,D,E @university.edu
Latex University


is that possible to do it without using any packages, if not packages are welcome.

Thanks

Edit: i came up with Thorsten Donig's solution however i have the problem of symbols that appear weirdly.

• Do you want this on a stand-alone title page or as part of of a title as it would be used for an article or paper? The titlepage environment (for stand-alone title pages) gives you freedom to typeset the authors just like you want, Jan 24 '11 at 10:48
• Double column article. Jan 24 '11 at 16:57
• I'd like a working answer to this question myself, using the symbols. Can anyone fix @ThorstenDonig's answer? Nov 23 '11 at 18:21
• Related question: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1408/… Nov 23 '11 at 18:54
• @Canageek: I do not understand your question. You say you would like to duplicates achemso as closely as possible and then say the answer seems very similar already. How do you want to fix the given answer? What should be removed? What should be added?

A short example with the authblk package. It is not exactly what you are looking for, but comes quite close.

\usepackage{authblk}

\author[2]{Author D\thanks{D.D@university.edu}}
\author[2]{Author E\thanks{E.E@university.edu}}

• Donig, thanks i came up with ur solution however i have some problems, i uploaded the picture and edited my question, can you help me why this occurs? Jan 24 '11 at 19:58
• @berkay: Unfortunately I can't comprehend this problem. I attached a picture of the resulting output. Perhaps a matter of outdated packages. See my list of used files. You can obtain this list by adding the \listfiles command as very first line to the sample code. Jan 24 '11 at 21:14
• @ Thorsten Donig, the problem is solved after removing the \thanks{A.A@university.edu}, now is there any other solution for adding the e-mail addresses:) Jan 25 '11 at 3:28
• @berkay: Did you check your package versions as I suggested? As shown above it works fine for me. But you could abuse the \date command to insert the required information manually. Jan 25 '11 at 18:09
• @Thorsten: can we change *1 with 1* after Author A? That is I need first the letter indicating the affiliation and then * for the footnote.

@Canageek: Is this what you want?

If so, then credit should go to Thorsten Donig as I read a "document" on authblk package and made few changes to Donig's answer.

Edit: If you want to use a dagger instead of ** , then replace (every) ** with $\dag$.

• Very good, this works. It seems pretty much identical to the answer above, am I missing anything? What does the \rnewcommand at the bottom do? Nov 28 '11 at 0:33
• I'm trying to add a new bounty with 50 rep for your work fixing it, if I can't...I'm sorry, thank you for your work. Nov 28 '11 at 0:41
• It changes ", and" to " and". If you prefer ", and" then comment it out.

• No, I like yours better. Stupid Oxford comma. I've gone around and upvoted questions and answers of yours I like to make up for you not getting the bounty- You've probably got more reputation for that anyway. Nov 28 '11 at 1:07
• I agree that this is simpler and works well

The titling package has capacities to typeset authors like this. See the documentation for the details.

This solution worked for me. I hope it helps. This will produce 1,2 not symbols. Many conferences has packages already supports the symbols for the authors however in my case the package of the conference was just deprecating the symbols. So I prefer just the numbers instead of the symbols.

• usenix isn't in TeXLive so I can't test your solution. Is that package essential? Nov 24 '11 at 23:36
• No, it's not you can use whatever you want even you can just delete it. Nov 25 '11 at 7:38
• Alright, I got it working as you said. If I don't get a better option when reviewing the answers below I'll use this. Thank you. Also: Why are you using \bf in once place, and \textit in another? Old habits? Nov 28 '11 at 0:28
• Actually, this seems to be identical to the answer below, except for the comment about $\dag$ Nov 28 '11 at 0:33
• I've gone over your questions and answers and tried to upvote things I liked to make up for not being able to award you the bounty. Nov 28 '11 at 1:10

I've come up with a solution without the use of additional packages (authblk). It gives almost exactly what the OP wants.

Basically, it provides a command \affmark which uses \textsuperscript to typeset the navigation symbols. The command takes an optional argument that specifies which symbol to use, which defaults to a star *. You can use \dag, \ddag etc like footnote, or numbers as in the following example.

% Use your conference documentclass or package.
\documentclass[letterpaper,twocolumn,10pt]{article}

% If your conference documentclass or package defines these macros,
% change these macros to different names.
\newcommand*{\affaddr}[1]{#1} % No op here. Customize it for different styles.
\newcommand*{\affmark}[1][*]{\textsuperscript{#1}}
\newcommand*{\email}[1]{\texttt{#1}}

\begin{document}
% Don't want date printed
\date{}
% Make title large and bold
\title{\Large\bfseries Paper Name Here}

% Target typesetting:
%
% Author A, Author B, Author C, Author D and Author E
%        A,B,C Department of Computer Science
%       D,E Department of Mechanical Engineering
%          Email A,B,C,D,E @university.edu
%                  Latex University

\author{%
Author A\affmark[1], Author B\affmark[1], Author C\affmark[1], Author D\affmark[2], and Author E\affmark[2]\\
\email{\{A,B,C,D,E\}@university.edu}\\
}

\maketitle
\end{document}


And it produces:

• How can I put the two affiliation lines into one line? May 6 '17 at 4:33
• @Admia, you just delete the \\  at the end of the first \affaddr line May 6 '17 at 14:00

• Welcome to TeX.SX. Can you extend your answer and add some explanations? May 27 '19 at 5:01

A quick temporary way. Just add spaces before the superscript.

Try

\author[\space\space 1]{Your Name \thanks{Address}}


\author[1]{Your Name \thanks{Address}}


Without any other Latex packages.
