see brian-amberg.de/uni/poster you can download the package form there; place in your working directory or anywhere where latex can find it. – prettygully Feb 8 '12 at 3:01

baposter is not available from CTAN. As such it is not available in either the TeX Live of MiKTeX distribution. Download baposter.cls, place it in your working folder and recompile.

For some example usages and information, see the baposter documentation.
