Sample of the ICSME 2016 Presentation

This repository contains the LaTeX source code and additional resources for a presentation that I, Colton J. McCurdy, with the advice and assistance of Gregory M. Kapfhammer, gave at the 32nd IEEE International Conference on Software Maintenance and Evolution (ICSME 2016). The presentation's source code uses a wide variety of LaTeX packages, such as beamer and pgftikz, in order to create each slide. I 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 icsme2016-presentation
pdflatex icsme2016-mccurdyc.tex
pdflatex icsme2016-mccurdyc.tex

If this does not work well because you notice that some of the icons are rendering at a font size that is too small, then please try the following commands instead.

cd icsme2016-presentation
xelatex icsme2016-mccurdyc.tex
xelatex icsme2016-mccurdyc.tex

Please note that this has been tested on an Arch Linux 4.7.6 workstation running a recent version of LaTeX (pdfTeX 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 TeX Live 2016/Arch Linux) that was installed using the pacman package manager. 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). 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.
