Sample of the SSBSE 2016 Tool Presentation

This repository contains the LaTeX source code and additional resources for a presentation that Gregory M. Kapfhammer (with the advice and assistance of Phil McMinn) gave at the 8th International Symposium on Search Based Software Engineering (SSBSE 2016). The presentation's source code uses a wide variety of LaTeX packages, such as beamer and pgftikz, in order to create each slide. We have developed a custom theme for the display of the slides and the use of progressive revealing of technical diagrams.

You are welcome to use these slides as inspiration for your own presentation. If you find this example useful, could I trouble you to star this repository and then acknowledge it in your own presentation slides?

You can type the following command if you want to clone this repository:

git clone

Then, if you want to compile the presentation to a PDF, you should type the following commands.

cd ssbse2016-presentation
pdflatex ssbse2016_kapfhammer.tex
pdflatex ssbse2016_kapfhammer.tex

Please note that this has been tested on an Ubuntu 16.04 workstation running a recent version of LaTeX that was manually installed using the TeXLive installer. It is worth noting that you can also compile the paper using other LaTeX development tools, such as latexmk (but note that to ensure certain icons are not sized correctly you may need to configure latexmk to use xelatex). Additionally, you may find that the placement of certain pgftikz diagrams requires manual adjustment depending on your LaTeX development environment and other settings. If you are unable to compile the presentation with your development tools and your execution environment, then please open a new issue and I will attempt to resolve your concerns.
