# Beamer - Multiple Authors - Formatting the title page

I have 4 authors for the beamer presentation. I tried to put them but its not properly aligned. Here is a snapshot:

Here is the MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\useoutertheme{infolines}
\author[Subham Soni S. \& Mithun C.K. \& Karthikeyan \& Shantikumar L.]
{%
\texorpdfstring{
\begin{columns}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
Subham Soni S.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
Mithun C.K.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
Karthikeyan\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
Shantikumar L.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}
\end{columns}
}
{John Doe \& Jane Doe}
}
\title{Work Culture}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}
\end{document}


If the authors can be arranged vertically I feel that would be better and down below in the pdf in the 3 boxes , the author names are concatenated in the first box, I saw in of the beam ppts that the authors were separated in another row. How to do that ?

This is another possible layout:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\useoutertheme{infolines}
\usepackage{tikz}
\newcommand\RBox[1]{%
\tikz\node[draw,rounded corners,align=center,] {#1};%
}
\author[Subham Soni S. \& Mithun C.K. \& Karthikeyan \& Shantikumar L.]
{%
\texorpdfstring{
\begin{columns}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\RBox{Subham Soni S.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\RBox{Mithun C.K.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}
\end{columns}
\vspace{0.5cm}
\begin{columns}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\RBox{Karthikeyan\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\RBox{Shantikumar L.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}
\end{columns}
\vspace{-0.3cm}
\begin{columns}
\column{0.3\linewidth}
\raggedleft
\includegraphics[width=0.7cm]{pecemblem}
\vspace{-4.8cm}
\column{0.6\linewidth}
\raggedright
Department of CSE\\[1.1ex]
PEC\\
\vspace{-4.8cm}
\end{columns}
}
{John Doe \& Jane Doe}
}
\title{Work Culture}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Adding these lines to the definition of \RBox

\usetikzlibrary{shadows}
\newcommand\RBox[1]{%


gives

I am bad too in color choice :(

You can use only two columns instead of four; the leftmost column will contain the authors, and the rightmost one, the logo:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{CambridgeUS}
\useoutertheme{infolines}

\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand\RBox[1]{%
\tikz\node[draw,rounded corners,align=center,] {#1};%
}

\author[Subham \& Mithun \& Karthikeyan \& Shantikumar]
{%
\texorpdfstring{
\begin{columns}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\linewidth]{ctanlion}
\column{.45\linewidth}
\centering
\RBox{Subham Soni S.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}\\[0.5ex]
\RBox{Karthikeyan\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}\\[0.5ex]
\RBox{Mithun C.K.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}\\[0.5ex]
\RBox{Shantikumar L.\\
\href{mailto:subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}{subhamsoni0049@pec.edu}}
\end{columns}
}
{Subham Soni S., Karthikeyanm, Shantikumar L.,  Mithun C.K.}
}
\title{Work Culture}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}

\end{document}


Notice also the line

\setbeamerfont{author in head/foot}{size={\fontsize{3pt}{4pt}\selectfont}}


to reduce the font for the authors in the footline so they fit in the available space.

@subhamsoni One frame for all the authors or each author in a separate frame. Anything else? Please mention all the requirements from the beginning. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 2 '14 at 6:00
One frame per each and if possible all the authors in one column vertically on the right and a image on the left below the title –  subham soni Mar 2 '14 at 6:01
@subhamsoni Please see my updated answer. –  Gonzalo Medina Mar 2 '14 at 6:34
Yup Got it. This is what I wanted to do :). Actually by myself, but I had no idea how to do it :( –  subham soni Mar 2 '14 at 6:43
