How to make a poster with LaTeX
Making posters is also part of a PhD student’s life, and there’s a lot of ways to do it. Here are two packages to create a poster using LaTeX.
- package baposter : it provides a pretty flexible set of commands, and using the template files provided with the package it’s really a piece of cake to make your own. The image above is the result of one of the provided templates.
- package beamerposter : it’s built upon beamer, so in some way it might be easier to use for beamer users, and not necessarily so for the others. The results can be very good as well, here is an example. Lots of templates are provided. I guess if you want to match your posters and your presentations, that’s the (only?) way to go.
Other methods are described on plenty of webpages but I think these two are the easiest to get a fancy poster done in a few hours.
EDIT: the a0poster package does the job too, thanks Xian!
