beamer | Several Authors on Title

Postby cheolcheolel » Mon Sep 19, 2011 3:44 am


I'm a PhD student and I'm looking for the solution to a question about beamer front matter.

I need to insert several authors with different affiliations. I would like them to be displayed like ' author 1(in say line 1), author 1's affiliation(in line 2), author 2(line 3),and author 2's affiliation(line 4)'.

I read and tried what the SWP manual says, but it didn't work.
Can someone help me?
Thank you.

you can use \\ within the author name(s), such as

  1. \author{author1\\author2\\author3}

for getting author (and affiliations if required) in several lines.

Thanks Stephan_K. Your solution seems for Latex, I think.
My questions is how I do that in Scientific Workplace/Word. Do you know how?

If two are more authors have the same address information I normally type something like author1 and author2 in the author field of Scientific Word. Otherwise, I enter a latex field similar to the one posted in this thread or the examples George gave on the MacKichan Software forum.
