# Email field in beamer class?

I am new to the beamer class and I am struggling to include my email info in a presentation.

I tried \email but there is no such field. I tried the below but the theme over-rode the \small making the email appear too big.

\documentclass[a4paper,12pt,english]{beamer}
\usetheme{PaloAlto}
\usecolortheme[named=black]{structure}
\usefonttheme{professionalfonts}
\title{Some Great Long Title}
\author{Author\\{\small email@email.com}}
\institute{ABC}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\titlepage
\end{frame}
\end{document}


Is there any way of inserting a row of text between author and institute with no formating?

You can just leave out the \small altogether to get it in the same size as the title. Alternatively you can replace it with \tiny to get something smaller than the title. If this is too small, you can use \scriptsize or \footnotesize. – Roelof Spijker Jan 16 '12 at 12:46
In the sidebar, the email comes out bigger than the author. That's weird… – Seamus Jan 16 '12 at 12:56
I see, \tiny did the trick. Thanks – Mobius Pizza Jan 16 '12 at 13:10
However, I seem to get Package hyperref Warning: Token not allowed in a PDF string (PDFDocEncoding):(hyperref) removing \\' error when I tried to use new line in author field – Mobius Pizza Jan 16 '12 at 13:13
\tiny also yeilds warning: LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape OT1/cmss/bx/n' in size <4> not available(Font) size <5> substituted ........ But I guess it's alright since the output looks fine – Mobius Pizza Jan 16 '12 at 13:19

\author{\texorpdfstring{Author\newline\url{email@email.com}}{Author}}

I usually use \href{mailto:some@email.com}{some@email.com}. – Martin Scharrer Jan 16 '12 at 13:20
