# 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](http://www-i6.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/~dreuw/) and [Thomas Deselaers](http://thomas.deselaers.de). 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.

### Features:

 * scalable fonts using the fp and type1cm packages
 * posters in DIN-A0, DIN-A1, DIN-A2, DIN-A3, DIN-A4, and custom sizes like double DIN-A0 possible
 * still applicable to custom beamer slides, e.g. 16:9 slides for a widescreen (i.e. 1.78 aspect ratio)
 * orientation: landscape or portrait
 * debug mode

### LaTeX requirements:

 * [beamer class](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/beamer) (all examples with beamer v.3.07 - Note: with beamer 3.10 do NOT use option hyperref={pdfpagelabels=false})
 * [fp package](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fp)
 * [xkeyval package](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xkeyval) (in a version supporting choice keys, e.g. v2.5f)
 * [type1cm package](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/type1cm) for scalable and huge math fonts
 * [paralist package](http://www.ctan.org/pkg/paralist)

The beamerposter package is available from CTAN:

 * CTAN release: http://www.ctan.org/pkg/beamerposter

We received so many congratulations and also interesting questions about the beamerposter package that we created a [beamerposter googlegroup](http://groups.google.com/group/beamerposter). 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](http://groups.google.com/group/beamerposter) so that we don't need to answer the same questions multiple times and others may benefit from your questions.

beamerposter – Extend beamer and a0poster for custom sized posters

The package enables the user to use beamer style operations on a canvas of the sizes provided by a0poster; font scaling is available (using packages such as type1cm if necessary).

In addition, the package allows the user to benefit from the nice colour box handling and alignment provided by the beamer class (for example, with rounded corners and shadows). Good looking posters may be created very rapidly.

Features include:

  • scalable fonts using the fp and type1cm packages;
  • posters in A-series sizes, and custom sizes like double A0 are possible;
  • still applicable to custom beamer slides, e.g. 16:9 slides for a wide-screen (i.e. 1.78 aspect ratio);
  • orientation may be portrait or landscape; a ‘debug mode’ is provided.
