# maketitle I can't see Title and Authors in PDF

TeX - LaTeX Asked by Valeria Figini on December 20, 2020

Good morning, I don’t understand why but if I use maketitle I can’t see Title and Authors in PDF. Can someone help me?
Thanks

documentclass[conference,a4paper]{IEEEtran}

IEEEoverridecommandlockouts

usepackage{cite}

usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}

usepackage{algorithmic}

usepackage{graphicx}

usepackage{textcomp}

usepackage{xcolor}

defBibTeX{{rm Bkern-.05em{sc ikern-.025em b}kern-.08em
Tkern-.1667emlower.7exhbox{E}kern-.125emX}}

begin{document}

title{………..\

{footnotesize textsuperscript}

thanks{}

}

author{IEEEauthorblockN{1textsuperscript{nd} ……………}

IEEEauthorblockA{textit{……………….} \

textit{………………}\

…………….. \

…………….}

and

IEEEauthorblockN{2textsuperscript{nd} ………………}

IEEEauthorblockA{textit{…………………..} \

textit{……………………..}\

…………………….. \

…………………..}

maketitle

}

begin{abstract}
.....



The standard way to do a title in LaTeX is to do it like so:

documentclass{...}

title{Title goes here}
author{Author name goes here}

...

begin{document}
maketitle


The title command is just identifying the title for the document and should go in the document preamble. The maketitle command is responsible for typesettingg the title and goes after begin{document}.

Note also that formatting should be handled by the document class and you don't really want to do all that textit etc. in your title, author etc.

Your maketitle command is misplaced.
