# How to add several authors with different affiliations in beamer?

Is it possible to do this in beamer? Or do I have to use other packages?

-

Yes, something along those lines:

\author[shortname]{author1 \inst{1} \and author2 \inst{2}}
\institute[shortinst]{\inst{1} affiliation for author1 \and %
\inst{2} affiliation for author2}


See documentation for Beamer class (page 94, v3.10).

Thanks, it works. I must have overlooked it in documentation. –  Marcin May 11 '11 at 10:21
How do you highlight the first author, for example with a underscore? –  LWZ Jul 16 '13 at 16:17
@LWZ Not sure I understand what you mean (underscore?), but \emph{author1} should work. –  chl Jul 16 '13 at 17:40
@chl, by underscore I mean have a solid line beneath the name. –  LWZ Jul 16 '13 at 18:27
@LWZ Have you tried \underline{author1}? –  chl Jul 17 '13 at 10:33
