[Tex/LaTex] Shared author affiliation in ACM Sig-proc


I had a paper in IEEE format, that was using \IEEEauthorblockN and \IEEEauthorblockA for shared affiliation, nicely as shown below. Now I need to change the format to ACM. How can I do the same thing to ACM Sig-proc format?


%.... later
    \author{\IEEEauthorblockN{aa\wu, bb\wu, cc\wu, dd\wu\wg, ff\wu}
    %  \sharedaffiliation
        \wu Department of Computer Science & & \wg Department of Surgery \\
        University         & & Hospital \\
    Email: \{aa,bb,cc,dd,ff\}@university.edu}

Insert this piece of coding just before the


like so...


and then adjust your particular 'author block' like so (example shown for 3 authors)...

\title{Alternate {\ttlit ACM} SIG Proceedings Paper in LaTeX

% Three authors sharing the same affiliation.
      \alignauthor Ben King\\      
      \alignauthor Georgia Tobin\\     
      \alignauthor Gerald Murray\\    
      \affaddr{Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science}  \\
      \affaddr{University of California, Berkeley }   \\
      \affaddr{Berkeley, CA 94720-1776 }

When compiled/previewed/rendered, this is the effect: enter image description here
