The LaTeX beamerposter package

LaTeX poster with beamerposter - beamer - a0poster

Creating a scientific LaTeX poster with the beamerposter package

The LaTeX beamerposter package was created by Philippe Dreuw and Thomas Deselaers. It is an extension of the LaTeX beamer and the a0poster classes in order to create LaTeX posters, e.g. a DIN-A0 size LaTeX poster in landscape or portrait orientation. Furthermore it is possible to scale the poster fonts to your needs.

The package allows you to benefit from the nice color box handling and alignment in the beamer class (e.g. with rounded corners and shadows) in order to create quite fast pretty conference posters.


LaTeX requirements:

The beamerposter package is available from CTAN and from my webpage.

We received so many congratulations and also interesting questions about the beamerposter package that I created a beamerposter googlegroup. Feel free to post your questions, source files, templates, or new style files there.
PLEASE: If you have any beamerposter related question, post it there so that I don't need to answer the same question twice
