The default classes provide this interface which generates a standard
title, a page in some classes or just a heading in others.

\begin{document}
\title{This is the title}
\author{I am the author}
\date{Today is the date}
\maketitle

However, if you need to create a custom title page, use the following.

\begin{titlepage}
\thispagestyle{plain}               % Declare this so that you can
                                    % Override headers and footers 
                                    % as described in note #001
\begin{center}
{\Huge I AM THE TITLE}\\
This is in the center and could very well be an abstract.
\end{center}
\vfill
% Bottom of the page
{\large \today}
\end{center}
\end{titlepage}
