\title[Short Paper Title] % (optional, use only with long paper titles)
{Title As It Is In the Proceedings}
{Include Only If Paper Has a Subtitle}
\author[Author, Another] % (optional, use only with lots of authors)
{F.~Author\inst{1} \and S.~Another\inst{2}}
% - Give the names in the same order as the appear in the paper.
% - Use the \inst{?} command only if the authors have different
% affiliation.
\institute[Universities of Somewhere and Elsewhere] % (optional, but mostly needed)
Department of Computer Science\\
University of Somewhere
Department of Theoretical Philosophy\\
University of Elsewhere}
% - Use the \inst command only if there are several affiliations.
% - Keep it simple, no one is interested in your street address.
\date[CFP 2003] % (optional, should be abbreviation of conference name)
{Conference on Fabulous Presentations, 2003}
% - Either use conference name or its abbreviation.
% - Not really informative to the audience, more for people (including
% yourself) who are reading the slides online

% This is only inserted into the PDF information catalog. Can be left

% Structuring a talk is a difficult task and the following structure
% may not be suitable. Here are some rules that apply for this
% solution:
% - Exactly two or three sections (other than the summary).
% - At *most* three subsections per section.
% - Talk about 30s to 2min per frame. So there should be between about
% 15 and 30 frames, all told.
% - A conference audience is likely to know very little of what you
% are going to talk about. So *simplify*!
% - In a 20min talk, getting the main ideas across is hard
% enough. Leave out details, even if it means being less precise than
% you think necessary.
% - If you omit details that are vital to the proof/implementation,
% just say so once. Everybody will be happy with that.
\subsection{The Basic Problem That We Studied}
\begin{frame}{Make Titles Informative. Use Uppercase Letters.}
% - A title should summarize the slide in an understandable fashion
% for anyone how does not follow everything on the slide itself.
Use \texttt{itemize} a lot.
Use very short sentences or short phrases.
\begin{frame}{Make Titles Informative.}
You can create overlays\dots
\item using the \texttt{pause} command:
First item.
Second item.
using overlay specifications:
First item.
Second item.
using the general \texttt{uncover} command:
First item.}
Second item.}
