\title{The \textsf{beamerposter} package}

\maketitle
\noindent
The \LaTeX\ \textsf{beamerposter} package is an extension of the \LaTeX\ \textsf{beamer} and the
\textsf{a0poster} classes in order to create \LaTeX\ posters, e.\,g.\ a DIN--A0 size \LaTeX\ %
poster in landscape or portrait orientation. Furthermore it is possible
to scale the poster fonts to your needs.
The package allows you to benefit from the nice color box handling and
alignment in the \textsf{beamer} class (e.\,g.\ with rounded corners and shadows)
in order to create quite fast pretty conference posters.
