I'm making a presentation with Beamer and I'm using the Hannover theme with the table of contents sidebar which is on each slide. I'd like not to show it on the first slide where is the title, the authors,... How can I do that ?

Here is my code:

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}


\title[]{Projet Q2: Mag-Id-Tag !}
\subtitle{\color{black}{Groupe 11.65}}
\author[]{Adrien Farinelle \and Emile Fourneau \and Antoine Gauthier \and Thibault Hellings \and Vincent Nadrin \and Charles Snyers}
\date{23 juin 2011}

\section*{Table des matières}


\section{Sous-blocs du système}

Thanks but even if there is no sidebar the title isn't centred, how can I fix that ? – snickers Jun 18 '11 at 18:34

Any idea how this \frame[plain]{\titlepage} could work inside LyX? – Nikos Alexandris Apr 27 '14 at 12:44
