the variable you want is \@title

Here is some code I use to get my title into my .pdf descriptions:

my papers use the class file: sugconf.cls
which is where the variables SUG* come from

\makeatletter%necessary to copy title and author into pdf description
\usepackage[bookmarks   =false%SUGI style guide
           ,pdfauthor   ={\@author}%
           ,pdfcreator  ={pdfLaTeX sugconf.cls}%
           ,pdfkeywords ={\SUGconfKeywords}%
           ,pdfstartview=FitBH%fit width of page to the window
           ,pdfsubject  ={\SUGconfSubject}%
           ,pdftitle    ={\@title}%


\fancyhead[LO, RE]{\@title}
