\author and \title admit several lines (break with \\, or with \\[1ex]
or whatever) and an optional argument for the toc and heads. So for
instance

\title[My Important Title]{My Important Title\\[1ex] and a less
important but informative subtitle}

\author[Myself]{Myself\\[1ex] University of Bla-blah-blah\\ City,
Country\\[1ex] \texttt{abc at xyz.com}}

allow you to format the "maketitle" information and retain the basic
there is the \date command. If you leave it out, the typesetting date

\date{Second version, \today}

This changes the date every time the document is typeset. You can fix
it with \date{23 October 2008}, or suppress it with \date{}. You can
also use the \date command to insert whatever information you like:

\date{DRAFT!! DO NOT DISTRIBUTE!!}

If you are using the bare document class "article", I think all these
will not conflict with other points in the style.

However, perhaps you would like to have a look at the "amsart" style,
which incorporates many niceties like those you are asking for (an
\address command, etc.) and more. I recommend George Grätzer's "Short
Course" available from TeXShop's Help menu, and then going on with the
whole book "More Math into LaTeX".

Hope this helps,
