### Problem with abstract using IEEEtran conference document class

Hi,

I am using the document class conference IEEEtran. I have been trying to center the abstract, since it shows up on the left column. The instructions in the "IEEEtran_HOWTO" say to use the command \IEEEtitleabstractindextext to avoid this problem, but it doesnt work. I presume I am the one doing something wrong, since I am new to Latex.

This is what I have written on the code:
\IEEEtitleabstractindextext  \maketitle \IEEEtitleabstractindextext{\begin{abstract}blah blah \end{abstract}} \IEEEdisplaynontitleabstractindextext

When I write, the abstract is still on the left side.

Hi alfa,

can you make your code compilable please? That way we can help you much much faster, because you present a very very specific problem. It is also much easier given the huge amount of diferent document classes and packages. A short description of what is needed can be found in How to create a minimal working example.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
