Using infposter class

  • Ian Wallace has a zip archive with all files needed to use the standard infposter class, here http://homepages.inf.ed.ac.uk/s0678044/jamboree-poster.zip
  • Ohad Kammar has put together an outline poster class, in the attached archive. His note about using it:
    • Basically, anything inside the internal directory should be in your local textree. If you want to use the schools makefile (printing-makefile) for generating eps files, you can edit the second makefile and change the job name into your projects name and then use "make -f printing-makefile scalea4" to get the scaled down eps. poster.tar.gz
  • Gavin Keighren produced an example file with a modified Makefile that allows you to use bibtex. gk-poster.tgz
  • Larger font size and portrait mode. The default infposter font size is quite small. You can make it larger by using the "12pt" option, which is equivalent to 32pt on A0 sized poster, but then the itemized list spacing does not look too good to me. Also, in portrait mode on A0 the logo and the border overlapped. As a result, I modified the infposter.cls to make spacing better, and added my own environment, myitemize, which provides nicer spacing using the enumitem latex package. The modified class and the poster I produced with it are here. infPosterLargerFont.tgz

Using latex-beamer class

  • The LaTeX beamer package allows for a different poster design, using example blocks (thanks David Sterratt for the tip). I took the informatics theme originally developed by Stratis Viglas for the beamer package, and updated it for use with beamer-poster class. The resulting file is here beamer-poster.tgz
